There’s no question that the Michigan State Spartans are one of the best teams in the country.  However, the price you have to pay to back them right now is going through the roof.  I think there’s value on the Ohio State Buckeyes here Sunday as a result.

The Spartans have done most of their damage either at home or on a neutral court this season.  In fact, this will be just their 2nd true road game of the season.  They failed to cover as 14.5-point favorites in a 10-point win at Rutgers in their only true road game thus far.

Chris Holtmann is quickly turning around this Ohio State program.  He has the Buckeyes off to a 12-4 start this season with their four losses coming to Gonzaga, Butler, Clemson and UNC.  And the Buckeyes are 3-0 in Big Ten play with road wins at Wisconsin and Iowa, and a home win over Michigan.  So it’s safe to say the Buckeyes are battle-tested.

Michigan State is 0-6 ATS in road games off a win by 10 points or more over a conference opponent over the last two seasons.  The Spartans are 1-8 ATS in road games after covering five or six of their last seven against the spread over the last two seasons.  Because they have covered five straight coming in, they are clearly overvalued.  Bet Ohio State Sunday.
