  • A pair of Big Ten rivals will be looking to bounce back from upset losses when the Michigan State Spartans battle the Indiana Hoosiers on Saturday in a Week 5 betting matchup at Memorial Stadium.

    Shark Bites
    • Michigan State is 6-0 SU and 5-1 ATS in its last six games after a loss.
    • Indiana is 1-7 SU in its last eight games against teams with winning records.
    • The total has gone OVER in Michigan State's last eight games against Indiana.

    The Spartans are coming off their first straight-up loss of the season, dropping a 30-6 decision to Wisconsin while pegged as 3.5-point home chalk. The loss ended a nine-game SU win streak on home turf, extending the squad's recent shaky record at the sportsbooks, where they have failed to cover in four of their past five.

    The Hoosiers also went down to defeat as home favorites last weekend, falling 33-28 to Wake Forest as 7.5-point chalk. Indiana outgained the Demon Deacons by a massive 611-352 margin, but were undone by the five interceptions thrown by pivot Richard Lagow.

    Indiana has now fallen to 1-5 SU in their past six home dates, and have failed to cover in three of their past four. The Hoosiers also face the daunting task of ending a seven-game SU losing streak against the Spartans, and are 1-7 SU, 2-6 ATS, in their past eight home clashes with Michigan State.
