The Michigan State Spartans will try to rebound from a rough road loss at Oregon following their bye week when they host the Eastern Michigan Eagles on Saturday. The Spartans had some time off to think about how they blew a 27-18 lead in the 46-27 setback to the Ducks, and they will be facing an Eastern Michigan team that has gone just 2-9 against the spread in its last 11 games as an underdog.

Michigan State has gone 4-1 ATS in the last five meetings with the Eagles, winning those games by an average of nearly 35 points. The exception came two years ago in East Lansing when Eastern Michigan lost 23-7 to cover as a 31.5-point road underdog.
