Pinstripe Bowl 2019: Michigan State Vs. Wake Forest Betting Line & Pick
Pinstripe Bowl 2019 Betting Preview
The season of the Michigan State Spartans was not what they expected. A win at the Pinstripe Bowl would help them finish 2019 one game over .500, while trying to regroup for next year.
Wake Forest, instead, overachieved in a loaded ACC conference, despite the fact that the last month of the regular season didn’t go their way.
This is the first time Michigan State and Wake Forest meet in College Football. Let’s dive in.

The Michigan State Spartans’ Form To Face Wake Forest
To play inside the Big Ten, you need solid defense and a beyond capable offense. Michigan State didn’t have any of those in 2019, and it ended with a 6-6 record. Between October and November, they lost five games in a row.
The Spartans snapped from their bad losing streak by beating Rutgers and Maryland in the last two games of the season.
Coach Dantonio Could Use A Bowl Game Win
Michigan State is not thinking about making a coaching change anytime soon, but head coach Mark Dantonio sure could use a bowl game win. His street credit took a big hit this season, especially after losing against Michigan by 34 points.
The good news for Michigan State is four of their six losses were against ranked teams. They did take care of the rest of the competition.
The Wake Forest Demon Deacons’ Form To Face Michigan State
Wake Forest ended the regular season four games over .500, although the last month could have gone a lot better. They lost three of the last four games, which happened to be on the road.
The Demon Deacons’ best wins were against North Carolina and Boston College. They also destroyed NC State by 34 points, just before entering their worst losing streak of the season.
Expect An Entertaining Game
Wake Forest is a team that could put a lot of points on you if you don’t take them seriously. They scored 40 points or more six times this year. Of course, they also gave up a lot of points, which ends up producing very entertaining games.
Head coach Dave Clawson is 3-0 in bowl games with Wake Forest. He does take these games seriously, which is sometimes all you need to pick a side.
Michigan State Vs. Wake Forest Pinstripe Bowl Prediction
The Spartans have been one of the most disappointing teams in the entire College Football landscape. As much as we like Mark Dantonio, there is nothing that suggests this team worth laying down -4.5.
Wake Forest, on the other hand, is a team that loves to play bowl games until the very end. They have also proven over the entire year that they have an offense capable of finding the end zone without much problem. Bet Wake Forest +4.5.
