Tracking Michigan-MSU Odds Moves

We’re tracking the odds — both the spread and over/under — in Michigan vs. Michigan State to see where the lines are headed.

All odds via PointsBet and current as of 10:20 a.m. ET on Saturday.

10:20 a.m. ET: Michigan is back up to -14 across most of the market, minus MGM, which is still at -13.5.

7:45 a.m. ET: This line has settled in at Michigan -13.5, and we haven’t seen much indication that it will go back to -14.

Previous Line Movement

Michigan opened as a 14.5-point favorite but has slowly been dropping throughout the week, settling in at -13.5 on Saturday morning.

That line of -14 is of course a key number, given the possibility that a football game can end with a two-score margin.

The total has also been steadily rising, going from 44 to 45 at most books.

What to Like & Dislike About Michigan

The Wolverines have looked better since a disastrous first quarter against Penn State a month ago, dominating Notre Dame at home and handling Maryland with ease.

The defense in particular has returned to form, holding five of its last six opponents to less than 4.0 yards per play.

What to Like & Dislike About Michigan State

It doesn’t feel like there’s much to like about Michigan State right now.

The Spartans have dropped four straight games, and while the first three were understandable — at Ohio State, at Wisconsin, hosting Penn State — blowing a huge lead against Illinois last week was not.

The usually stout MSU defense has only given up fewer than 5.0 yards per play once in its last five games, and that came in a monsoon against Penn State.
