Michigan Opens As 5-Point Favorite Over Michigan State

The opening line for Saturday's Michigan-Michigan State game is out, and the Wolverines are currently a five-point favorite over the Spartans. Many expected Michigan to be favored since the game is in Ann Arbor, but for the spread to be five points surprised me a bit.

By Saturday I would expect the line to drop a bit, as taking MSU to cover is probably enticing for many gamblers out there. While the game is at Michigan, the Spartans have looked very good this season, so that may be a popular bet, causing the line to move more towards even.

No word yet on what the over/under will be set at for this game.
