As we approach the start of the season only 15 days away all the other gambling degenerates like myself are checking early lines and season win totals. Here is my analysis for this top tier Big Ten East team and their season win totals.
MSU: O/U 8 wins
This Spartan team is back with vengeance and a win total of 8 but was 7.5 a few months ago. If you were a sharp bettor you would of got it at the better line like I did.
They have a brutal schedule but I think based on what they have back and how they went 7-6 last season there is no way they go under 7 which is why I loved 7.5 to cash easy. At 8 I can see a push but also a very good chance of going over as well.
If they can beat Northwestern on the road in a huge showdown leading up to the Ohio State matchup, then I can see them at 9-10 wins. But also if they lose at Northwestern and fall at Ohio State they have no let up in sight with Wisconsin and Penn State back to back and Michigan looming in Ann Arbor.
There is no easy games but Dantonio does a good job of rallying his troops and this seems to be a year where they play up and grab a couple big wins on the road and some considered upsets.
Sparty hits the over of 8
