With the Michigan State vs. Northwestern spread Gambling911.com has determined that there is actually a middling opportunity available.  Middling is when one bets opposite sides at two different online sportsbooks in hopes that a game falls on a specific number.  In this case, SBG Global was offering Michigan State at -4 ½ while Sportsbook.com had a line of Northwestern +5 ½.  Should Michigan State win this game by 5 points, you would win both your bets.

Two of Northwestern’s last 10 games have been won by 5 points, so it is not entirely uncommon for a game to land on this number.

Northwestern is 6-0 Against The Spread as an underdog of 3.5 to 10 points over the last 3 seasons. They are 8-1 ATS in their last 9 games as a home underdog of 3.5-10.0. (edge:  Northwestern)
