Pat’s Thoughts:



Michigan State -2 vs Purdue

This one shows all the signs I look for. Purdue is coming off a massive home win vs Ohio State where everyone was watching. It was so emotional on every level and was a fantastic game. Michigan State, on the other hand, got rocked by Michigan. The score was much closer than the game was.

Purdue has the impossible task of getting up for this game. No way do they match the energy and intensity that they did last week. And while Michigan State has been very blah this year, they have shown up on occasion (Penn State).

I get the better defense, home field, better coach in this one with Michigan State. I get a team trying to bounce back from a humiliating defeat in Michigan State, vs a team in a huge letdown spot. I get a team that is only getting 36% of the bets, but the line has gone from +1 to -2. I’ll gladly lay a small number for that…
