It has to be tough to bet on the Michigan State vs Wisconsin game each time these two teams hook up. The Spartans and Badgers always seem to be playing instant classics, and the line reflects that.

Here are the betting odds for the Michigan State vs Wisconsin game:

Line: Michigan State -3.5
Over/Under: 40.5
Moneyline: Michigan State -170, Wisconsin +150

Vegas isn’t ready to give the Spartans too much credit after a nice road win over Notre Dame as the line is just 3.5 points. Heck, Sin City doesn’t even believe the two teams will be scoring many points — which might be true.

However, the Spartans proved to have a decent offense against the Fighting Irish, posting 36 straight posts in the second and third quarters. LJ Scott has been a beast in the backfield, coupled with Gerald Holmes, and Tyler O’Connor is starting to figure some things out.

Although he has a habit of under-throwing balls, he gets bailed out by athletic wide outs like R.J. Shelton, Monty Madaris, Felton Davis III and Donnie Corley. The latter of that group had his best game last week, catching four passes for 88 yards and a circus touchdown reception.

Feel free to place money on this week’s game, but just be aware that this rivalry has never been an easy one to predict.
