Michigan State Spartans | Big 10 (East)

Overview

Conference Analysis
Win Division (+555), Win Conference (+1000)
SSA Model Pick: None
Sparty had a bounce back season last year going 9-3 in the regular season. With 19 starters back and Dantonio still at the helm, this team could find themselves champions of the Big 10. A stacked division makes this difficult, but expect Michigan State to impress this season.

Win Total Analysis
9 wins (-115/-105)
SSA Model Pick: Under (Medium Confidence)
The non-conference schedule for the Spartans is weak, but the in-conference schedule is difficult. Playing in a stacked division means someone has to lose, so it’s not possible to have four 10+ win teams playing in the same division.
