4* Big Ten SMASH on Minnesota +6
Motivated by 3 consecutive defeats and an embarrassing 16-point loss at Michigan State last month, expect Minnesota to take the Spartans down to the wire tonight.
Michigan State looks to be the class of the Big Ten, but it hasn't proven it can be trusted laying points on the road. The Spartans were fortunate to win at Wisconsin and have losses at Northwestern, Michigan and Illinois. In fact, they are 3-7 ATS in their last 10 games as a road favorite and 1-7 ATS in their last 8 games as a road favorite of 6.5 points or less. Take the points.
