NEWSLETTER College Football Prediction From Jason Sharpe

Take #327 Indiana (+16.5) over Michigan State (3:30 p.m., Saturday, Oct. 24)
The Michigan State Spartans had a miracle win last week over their in-state rivals to go to 7-0 overall on the season. It was an emotional victory for MSU who now have to turn around and go up against which should be an angry opponent just a week later. MSU has found a way to get the job done this season, but it’s obvious that this team isn’t as good as everyone expected them to be before this year started.

In fact the Spartans are just 1-6 against the spread in those first 7 games this year. None of their first 7 victories have come by more than 13 points, and we are looking a point spread here of nearly 17 points here in this one. MSU played a very solid defensive game last week and a lot of that had to do with Michigan’s offense being more of a North/South type of offense, an area the Spartans are exceptionally strong at defending.

Their opponent here in this one though is much different as the Indiana Hoosiers are more of an East/West type of offense and that can give the MSU defense fits trying to defend against it. The Hoosiers come in off a heartbreaking loss last week where they let a 25-point lead slip away late and lost their homecoming game on a last second field goal.

It was a demoralizing loss for Indiana, who started the season off with four straight wins but they have now lost their last three coming into this one. I expect a full out effort here from what should be a motivated Hoosiers team looking to redeem itself after last week’s awful loss. Take Indiana plus the points here.
