Michigan State is 6-2 against the spread in their last eight home games, 9-3 against the spread in their last 12 games, 7-3 against the spread following a win. Binghamton is 8-2-1 against the spread in their last 11 road games, 3-1-1 against the spread in their last five non-conference games, and 8-3-1 against the spread in their last 12 games.
The line in this one has jumped and Michigan State can name their number so I have to believe they name their number big as the bench gets a lot of work here.
