Featured Game | Michigan State Spartans vs. Minnesota Golden Gophers

Why Minnesota can cover

Minnesota prepared for this game, blowing out three losing opponents at home. The Golden Gophers go into Saturday’s competition rested as their starters have been out towards the end of games so far this season. Senior running back Mohamed Ibrahim is one of the best running backs in college football, averaging 6.9 yards per carry on 67 tries.

Senior quarterback Tanner Morgan was efficient, completing 71.7% of his passes for 618 yards, four touchdowns and one interception. Michigan State is coming off a tough road loss, making it difficult to hold back against a motivated opponent. Minnesota, which has covered the spread in seven of its last eight road games, has a top-ranked roster undeterred by Saturday’s atmosphere.

Why Michigan State Can Cover

Michigan State opened the season with two stunning home wins, so it will be happy to return home after last week’s loss in Washington. The Spartans rose from 11th to unranked after losing to Washington, but they went 11-2 last season and shouldn’t be discounted after that one loss. Junior quarterback Payton Thorne has completed 63.8% of his passes for 768 yards and seven touchdowns in three games.

Minnesota hit the road for the first time after losing three opponents, so the Golden Gophers are under-prepared for this duel. Michigan State has won five straight games in this head-to-head series, including a 30-27 away win last season. The Spartans have also covered the span in six straight home games, making them comfortable at Spartan Stadium.
