The Spartans were off last week which is probably a good thing as they need to regroup after losing in the desert to Arizona State. Second straight road game for the Spartans.
Indiana is 3-0. They may not have beaten anyone of note but they were all against FBS teams and now they are halfway to bowl eligibility. This is likely their first loss but they are at home.
Michigan State Spartans
When all is said and done a loss to Arizona State might not look that bad but Michigan State needs to be better. They have to be able to move the ball to win in conference where there are some very good defenses.
I like quarterback Brian Lewerke a lot but the Spartans have to be able to run the ball. There might not be a more overrated player in the game than tailback LJ Scott. He is running out of time.
Michigan State is supposed to have a good defense but it is hard to tell right now. They gave up 31 points to Utah State in the opener but just 16 to ASU. Indiana can move the ball.
Last week they beat up Ball State to go to 3-0 and Indiana has to be playing with some confidence. They have a balanced offense and should be able to force the Spartans to beat them, not just show up.
In the past Indiana has had some dynamic players like a Tevin Coleman but this gorup is just balanced on offense and looking to execute. Freshman running back Stevie Scott is a bruiser at 230+.
This is Indiana’s best chance to compete with the big boys in the Bug Ten. Michigan State is going to make it tough to move the ball. If Indiana avoids mistakes there is no reason this one can’t come down to the final possession either way.

4* Free NCAA Betting Pick: Michigan State -4.5
In my mind the Spartans are well off the leaders in the Big Ten. Still the loss to Arizona State was surprising. If they are the team we want them to be then they should win easily.
Indiana will not come out flat and will play with them for a quater or two before the Spartants pull away for an easy win and cover.
