The Michigan State Spartans are coming into this week 4 match-up off of a bye week. They lost their last game two weeks ago out in Arizona against the Sun Devils 16-13. The Indiana Hoosiers have yet to lose this season (3-0). This will be their third game in a row at home before having to head out on the road to face Rutgers and Ohio State over the next couple of weeks.

Michigan State Needs to Bounce Back After Disappointing Loss

Michigan State had a really tough loss at Arizona State in their last game. They lost the game in the fourth quarter being outscored 13-0 in the quarter and losing the game 16-13. They should be ready to go after a week off to think about that loss and what they’ll need to do to beat Indiana.

If the Spartans are to win this they’ll need junior QB Brian Lewerke to play big. Lewerke has 601 yards passing with three touchdowns and two interceptions through the first two games.

The Spartans run defense has been amazing so far only allowing 34.5 yards per game. It’s been their pass defense that has been the issue, they’re allowing 349.5 yards through the air, so they’ll need to tighten that up as they move forward throughout the season.

Indiana Kicks off Big 10 Play

The Hoosiers start Big 10 play after a beautiful 3-0 start to the season. They have wins over FIU, Virginia, and Ball State. Michigan State will be their toughest match-up to this point.

Indiana’s go to guy on offense has been freshman running back Stevie Scott. Scott is averaging 5.6 yards per carry and three touchdowns through the first three games.

If Indiana can keep the great balance on offense they’ve shown through their first three games they’ll have a great shot in this one. They’re averaging 201.3 yards per game through the air and 235 on the ground. Balance is the key for them.

The Bottom Line What to bet on this game.

Full-Game Side Bet
Rating:

Michigan State has been off for two weeks and have had plenty of time to game plan and get ready for the Hoosiers in this one. Not to mention they’re coming in off of a loss so they’ll be chomping at the bit to get a chance to get back on track.

Michigan State is 6-2 ATS in their last 8 following an ATS loss. The Hoosiers are also just 3-12-1 in their last 16 conference games. The play here is Michigan State.

Prediction: Michigan State -4.5
