Michigan State Spartans Betting

The Michigan State Spartans will be making the program’s first ever appearance in the Pinstripe Bowl against the Wake Forest Demon Deacons when the teams collide on December 27 from Yankee Stadium. While Mark Dantonio’s kids had much higher aspirations at the outset of the season, their inability to rise up and challenge any of the big wigs atop the Big Ten standings has them set for a trip to the Big Apple. Since rattling off bowl wins and covers four straight times, Sparty has only managed to come out victorious both SU and against the closing college football odds once in their last three tries. With that, you can expect this experienced bunch to come out determined to put a wrap on the season in style.

Pinstripe Bowl Odds

Michigan State Spartans -4

Wake Forest Demon Deacons +4

Total 48.5

MSU’s pass defense is certain to get a workout in this matchup with the Deacs entering it owners of the nation’s No. 18 ranked passing attack that averages just under 300 passing yards per game. That said, the Spartans job will be made a little bit easier with Sage Surratt and his 1,001 receiving yards and 15.2 yard per catch average no longer in the mix after suffering a season-ending shoulder injury. It’s also unknown as to whether Jamie Newman and his near 2,700 passing yards and 23:10 TD/INT ratio will be in the mix after going down with a leg injury in the season finale against Syracuse. That’s good news for a Michigan State pass defense that had its fair share of issues containing the likes of Michigan’s Shea Patterson, Penn State’s Sean Clifford, Ohio State’s Justin Fields and the Illini’s Brandon Peters at the tail end of the season.

Linemakers initially lined the Spartans 3.5-point favorites to come out the victor of the Pinstripe Bowl. Though the betting line is yet to move off the opener in early wagering at online sportsbooks, college football bettors are being asked to lay a price if they want to fade MSU and take the points with the Demon Deacons. Very surprising when you take into account the injuries that could hamper Wake Forest’s offense in this matchup, as well as the fact that Dantonio possesses the better overall defense by far. But can Ryan Lewerke and the offense take advantage of a Wake Forest defense that serves up nearly 410 yards and over 29 points per game? If the previous three seasons of him manning the controls of the offense aren’t an indicator, you haven’t watched many Michigan State games through the years. Regardless, this will be his last hurrah as a member of the team, so it’s pretty safe to assume he’ll be going all-out to close his career in East Lansing with a second bowl win.

Regular Season Recap

MSU scored a lone touchdown, a sneak by Lewerke with 3:08 to play in the second quarter, and got four field chip shot field goals from Matt Coghlin to log the 19-16 win as decided 3+ touchdown favorites. His final make, with just over two minutes to play after another possession bit the dust, proved to be the one that will ultimately allow Sparty to lace up their bowling shoes for the 12th time in 13 seasons under Dantonio. Michigan State will now wait to see which bowl it goes to which will likely be the Pinstripe Bowl in the Big Apple or the Quick Lane Bowl in Motown.

“I think we'll have a Power 5 opponent and an opportunity to win seven and tilt the ledger this way a little bit,” Dantonio said. “I'll be excited where we'll go. Every bowl experience we've had, every single bowl experience we've had, has been a tremendous experience for our players, really for our fans, the ones that are there and for our football program and team. They have all been positive experiences and they've all helped us get better. “At the end of the day, we need to continue to work toward getting better.”

The finale versus the Scarlet Knights more or less summed up Lewerke’s stay in East Lansing from an offensive perspective. Drives stalled in the red zone. Fourth and shorts were stopped. The QB1 not seeing open receivers, and then over or underthrowing them when he did. Offensive linemen getting blown off the ball to destroy running lanes. It was like a broken record! “It obviously wasn’t the greatest game. We had opportunities in the red zone again, should have had more points on the board,” Lewerke said. "But at the end of the day, a win is a win. It’s our sixth win, and we’re going to a bowl game. Coach D said, that’s the minimum standard around here. We want to make sure we reach that. A win’s a win.”
