Michigan vs Michigan State Week 9 Pick

The Michigan State Spartans have won five of the last six meetings with the Michigan Wolverines heading into Saturday's Big Ten rivalry game in East Lansing.

The Spartans are 6-0 against the spread in those games and will look to extend their five-game winning streak overall in hopes of staying in the national title picture. (The line was bet up to 17 points at Bovada by Friday.)

The Wolverines are simply trying to play spoilers at this point of the season after dropping three of their last four games. They are 2-4 ATS in their past six but broke a three-game losing streak with an 18-13 win over Penn State as 2.5-point home favorites before their bye week.

Michigan has covered in its last three road games against Big Ten opponents and is 3-1 ATS in its past four as a road underdog.
