These are two interesting teams that have been terrible to handicap this season.
Who saw MSU losing to Rutgers then upsetting Michigan? Or Maryland recovering from their opening loss to Northwestern the way they have?
Two weeks ago Michigan State might have been favoured by 5.5.
Michigan State Spartans
After getting shutout by Indiana last week the Spartans have scored just 7 points in the two games since they upset Michigan. That is where they really need to improve.
Last week in an attempt to get the offense going they played freshman Payton Thorne at QB. He replaced Rocky Lombardi and was better but hardly an improvement enough to say they have found their guy.
MSU was also not moving the ball on the ground against the Hoosiers. I love the Indiana story but they are not about defense so this is not a good sign.
The defense is definitely not up to the standards set by the previous regime or by what coach Mel Tucker is used to working with at Georgia.
This team can only go up from where they have been the last couple of weeks, losing by a combined score of 73-7.
Losing to Northwestern was no shock for Maryland but getting trounced 43-3 probably still stings a little and did nothing to prepare us for what came next.
Since then they have back to back upset wins over Minnesota and Penn State. The first by a point and the second by 16. They have a great chance of running their winning streak to three games this week.
I think you can put most of the turnaround on the offense. Tua’s little brother has proved to be a very effective player even though he is on the short side for the position.
Maryland does not have an elite defense but they should look alright here thanks to Michigan State being in such disarray on offense right now.

I am so glad we have more data on these teams because this bet would have been so hard to make a couple of weeks ago.
4* Free NCAA Betting Pick: Maryland -5.5
The data is telling me that the Terps have a functional offense and that should be enough for them tack on another win here. It might not be pretty though.
Michign State might have got Jim Harbaugh fired but it seems they have already collected the highlight of their season. The rest might be kind of grim.
