A clear difference can be seen in this year’s Michigan vs. Michigan State matchup. MSU has been one of the most disappointing teams in all of NCAA Football betting. Recruiting has slipped as his imaginative play calling on offense. Following a slow start, Michigan has picked up momentum. Head coach Jim Harbaugh’s team has gone back to the basics of physical football. More emphatically the Wolverines are starting to crank cash. By contrast, the Spartans are drowning in red ink. Michigan will host a reeling Michigan State team in a rivalry that lacks past appeal.
