Point Spread: +6/-110 Michigan State
5 Unit Play. #255 Take Michigan State over Stanford Cardinal (Rose Bowl, Wednesday, 1/1, 4 pm ESPN) Mag 7 Game. This is one of the few BCS Bowl games besides the championship game that people are excited for. We used Michigan State last year as our Bowl Game of the Year and will use them again as another strong play this season. Stanford has some great wins on the season but their defense is better equipped to stop spread teams and Sparty would certainly not be considered a spread team. Stanford has embarrassing losses to USC and Utah and do not expect them to be able to run through this Spartan defense. Stanford plays conservative on offense and thus I see this game going like their Rose Bowl game with Wisconsin last year. Michigan State is a much better team than Wisconsin was last year yet the Cardinal struggled to score and could never put them away. Michigan State is 4-0 ATS in their last 4 neutral site games. This will be a field goal game and we will cover with whoever comes out on top.
