MICHI­GAN ST over W Michi­gan by 13

Playbook Football (Midweek Alert) - - 2-minute Handicap -

You saw it right – Michi­gan State bolded and un­der­lined! Yes, we re­al­ize that Sparty is 1-11 ATS as home chalk off a pre­vi­ous homer and 4-10-1 ATS as fa­vorites of more than 7 points be­fore fac­ing Notre Dame while Western Michi­gan is 12-3-1 ATS as dogs since 2014 and hung tough with high­pow­ered USC be­fore suc­cumb­ing in the fi­nal stanza. How­ever, Dan­to­nio and com­pany are on a ‘mis­sion’ this sea­son and our AWE­SOME AN­GLE on page 2 sug­gests that the Bron­cos and new head coach Tim Lester took too deep a cut in their open­ing loss to the Tro­jans to de­feat a de­ter­mined coach who, him­self, is 17-2 SU against MAC op­po­nents. We should also point out that Big Ten teams (with­out the help of afore­men­tioned Pur­due) are 250-40 SU against MAC’ers dat­ing back to 1980. So in a game that looks like a taffy pull to the ca­sual ob­server, we see value lay­ing sin­gle dig­its at home with a fo­cused squad that was fa­vored by 16.5 points in Kala­ma­zoo just two short sea­sons ago. Need we say more?
