Michigan State Spartans 2012 BCS Odds and Schedule


Michigan State won the Big Ten Legends Division last season, beating out in-state rival Michigan and favorite Nebraska with a 7-1 league record. The Spartans failed to win the conference, though, falling 39-42 to Wisconsin in the Big Ten title game. Recently released Michigan State Spartans 2012 Season Odds would indicate the team might take a small step back this year. The Spartans are drawing 21-4 odds ($100 to win $525) the Big Ten and 5-1 odds to retain their Legends title. Michigan State, which offshore bookmaker 5Dimes is favoring to win Over 8.5 games (-135 money line odds), is considered a national title long shot, presently sitting at 85-1 odds to win the BCS National Championship.

While Michigan’s State defense, which returns eight starters, should be one of the best in the nation this season (18.4 ppg allowed in 2011), the loss of quarterback Kirk Cousins coupled with a brutal schedule has the odds makers anticipating a new Legends Division winner. 

The Spartans were fortunate to host Michigan and Wisconsin a season ago, but this year they travel to Ann Arbor and Madison. Early game lines have Mark Dantonio’s squad listed as a dog in both of those contests (+6 at Michigan, +5 at Wisconsin). Michigan State is, however,  favored in home meetings with Boise State (-6), Notre Dame (-3), Ohio State (-5), and Nebraska (-5). 

Michigan State Spartans 2012 Schedule: 8/31 Boise State (-6), 9/8 at Central Michigan, 9/15 Notre Dame (-3), 9/22 Eastern Michigan, 9/29 Ohio State (-5), 10/6 at Indiana, 10/13 Iowa, 10/20 at Michigan (+6), 10/27 at Wisconsin (+5), 11/3 Nebraska (-5), 11/17 Northwestern, 11/24 at Minnesota
