Gambling911.com anticipates the spread on the Michigan vs. MSU Saturday college basketball game to be set at Spartans -4.  That's exactly what is being presented.


The Wolverines are an unimpressive 10-7 Straight Up on the season and their 7-10 record Against The Spread illustrates what a letdown this team has been thus far.  They will, however, be entering Saturday's matchup with a three-game win streak.

They just barely squeaked by Northwestern Wednesday night with Freshman Caleb Houstan scoring 18 points and DeVante’ Jones adding 15 points with six assists.  Michigan walked away with the 72-70 victory.

MSU has gone 15-4 this season and are proving to be profitable for sports bettors with an 11-7 record Against The Spread.  They've won eight of their last ten games overall but are only 3-4 Against The Spread in their last seven.

The Fighting Illini's Trent Frazier scored a game-high 16 points, and No. 24 Illinois held on to beat No. 10 Michigan State 56-55 on Tuesday and take sole possession of first place in the Big Ten.

Marcus Bingham Jr. had 13 points to lead the Spartans, while Gabe Brown had 10 and Tyson Walker added 9.

The home team has won the last six games in this series with MSU victorious in five of the last seven.  All of the Spartans wins were by 5 or more points. 

As an away underdog, Michigan is 3-8 Straight Up and Against The Spread since 2019. 

As a home favorite since 2018, the Spartans are 44-7 Straight Up for an 86.3% win percentage.   

Do take the Spartans on the moneyline, which should have a decent price, and consider them Against The Spread at -4.
