Why Bet On The Rutgers Scarlet Knights?

Why should you bet on Rutgers in this contest? Look, to be honest about it, there’s only one good reason to back Rutgers and it’s because the Knights are getting almost four touchdowns.

Rutgers has lost 10 straight and comes into this contest off a 20-7 home loss against Penn State on Saturday. The good news for the college football bettors that are thinking about backing the Knights is that they’ve gone 4-0 ATS over their last four games including their cover as a 28.5-point home dog last weekend.

The bad news is that Rutgers has lost seven straight road games. This season quarterback Arthur Sitkowski is completing a pitiful 49.1 percent of his passes for 1,158 yards with four touchdowns and 18 interceptions.

Next, the Spartans are playing at home and last but not least, they are completely and utterly desperate. The bad news is that Michigan State has lost three of their last four home games.

Expert Analysis and Prediction for Rutgers vs Michigan State

I’m going to get right to the point by saying that I like Rutgers to cover the spread for a couple of reasons. First, Michigan State has an awful offense that just isn’t very explosive, so I don’t think they’ll be able to score enough points to beat Rutgers by four touchdowns.

The Scarlet Knights are a perfect 4-0 ATS in their last 4 conference games and 4-0 ATS in their last 4 games overall. On the flip side of the coin, Michigan State has gone 1-5 ATS in their last 6 home games and 2-6 ATS in their last 8 games on grass. The home team in this rivalry is 4-1 ATS in their last 5 meetings, but I don’t trust the Spartans to cover such a huge number and neither should you!

Score: Michigan State 27 – Rutgers 14
