Date & Time:
Location: Spartan Stadium
Huskies to Show Off Explosive Offense
The world will get to watch Heisman Trophy candidate Michael Pennix Jr. behind center of an offense that averaged 565.5 total yards in games against Boise State and Tulsa. Most received a push, some a loss, against the number last week versus the Golden Hurricane after winning 43-10 as a 33-point favorite. If you got the best of the numbers, Washington’s 5-game cover streak remained intact to go along with a 9-game straight-up win streak.
Their NCAA football odds history shows improvement after heading into the 2022 season with a 28-33 ATS record since 2020. The Huskies are officially 7-6 ATS since, with profit always a measure that a program is turning around. Washington has to be more of a friend to bettors as a favorite after 20 losses in their last 36 games, 2-6 ATS on the road.
We continue our Washington vs Michigan State odds preview by turning our focus to Michigan State.
Michigan State Faces Continuous Adversity
It would be nice if we could just focus on NCAA Football scores and which team covered, but there are times when bettors have to focus on off-the-field issues that will impact winning or losing a wager. The Spartans are once again in the middle of a controversy that saw Head Coach Mel Tucker get suspended without pay after being accused of sexual misconduct.
Harlon Barnett will take the headset for his alma mater with former Head Coach Mark Dantonio being Tucker’s assistant. Barnett was a part of Dantonio’s staff for 11 seasons. After wins against Central Michigan (31-7) and Richmond (45-14), this will be the first real test for Michigan State who is 33-23 ATS since 2021 after three straight losing seasons against the number from 2018-2020.
Let’s see if the turmoil deters us from betting on the Spartans as we conclude our Washington vs Michigan State odds preview.
The Points Are Too Many to Ignore
It would be smart to stay away from this match-up but the 16-points are just too much to pass up. We have records on everything else but this, but we can’t tell you how many times we’ve seen a team dealing with outside distractions bond together for a week. That’s what we’re going to see this week.
Quarterback Noah Kim is for real after being named the Big 10’s Offensive Player of the Week after throwing for 292 yards against the Spiders.
There has to be a small chip on the shoulder of Kim who has watched Pennix receive most of the attention.
Spartan Stadium is not an easy place to walk out of with a victory and certainly not an easy place to go when a blowout is necessary to cash a betting ticket. Take the points and the Spartans.
That does it for our Washington vs Michigan State betting odds preview, we wish you all the best with your wagers this weekend.
