After a disastrous 2016 Michigan State is looking more like the team we have come to know this decade. Still winning in this one looks like a bit of a reach.
Michigan might be the one undefeated team that we are not talking about. They were off last week and needed it as they ready a new quarterback.
Michigan State Spartans
The Spartans rebounded from an ugly loss to Notre Dame with a solid win against Iowa. It was a “must” game as last year spriraled out of control pretty quickly.
With its strong defensive numbers this definitely looks a lot more like what we have become accustomed to from the Spartans. They are fourth in the nation in yards allowed.
What is different is the offense. QB Brian Lewerke is very athletic and actually leads the ream in rushing. That is a new wrinkle for a program that has been graduating pro style QBs to the NFL. The question is whether it is enough.
Michigan put Purdue in their place last week, beating the upstarts by 18 points on the road. Still this team has failed to impress me so far this season.
Speaking of failing to impress, Wilton Speight is out indefinitely with a back injury. That mean’s more reps for John O’Korn who has some success early in his career at Houston.
Big Blue does not need O’Korn to be great. Not with the nations top defense against the run and in overall yards allowed. If they score 14 points that might be enough.

It seems that this is season is going to have a lot of low total high spread games. Those are the hardest to handicap.
4* Free NCAA Betting Pick: Michigan State +10
Sparty would love to put a dent in their rivals’ pursuit of the playoff, and may, but if this is going to be a low scoring affair they can keep it nice and close throughout.
I am not expecting the Michigan offense to all of a sudden ramp up with O’Korn, I think the elusiveness of Lewerke will be a difference maker for Michigan State.
