Michigan State Spartans Form
With the blowout loss to Ohio State last week, the Spartans fell out of the Top 25 and things don’t get any easier now as they have to go on the road to face the other top team in the Big 10.
Simply put, the offense is to blame for the two Sparty losses. In the first setback of the season, MSU could only muster seven points in a shocking 10-7 home loss to Arizona State, a game the Spartans were listed as a 15.6-point favorite.
Then, of course, last week the team was outclassed by a very good Ohio State team that gashed the Sparty defense for over 500 total yards.
In the team’s four wins, the offense has averaged 37.5 points per game, while the defense has been pretty good in every game except the Buckeyes debacle.
Wisconsin Badgers Form
The Badgers have been ultra-impressive this season and last week was no different as they pitched their third defensive shutout of the season in a 48-0 romp over Kent State.
Running back Jonathan Taylor continued to make a case for the Heisman Trophy, finishing with 186 rushing yards and 5 TDs.
Wisconsin’s “D” has been outstanding, leading the nation in scoring defense with a paltry 5.8 points allowed per game.

Michigan State vs. Wisconsin Picks
As much as we like to bet the Spartans as an underdog, they proved last week they simply don’t have the firepower to compete with the top-notch defenses in College Football.
Wisconsin has a huge scheduling edge as it has been home for six weeks in a row, including a bye, so the Badgers are as well rested as a team can be in mid-October, especially when you consider they’re off an easy win over an inferior opponent last week.
The same can’t be said for MSU, who didn’t get any help from the schedule maker here in having to play two of the best teams in the country, back-to-back, on the road.
Lay the points with Michigan State.
