Michigan State Spartans vs. Indiana Hoosiers Betting NCAA Football Odds

Michigan State Spartans vs. Indiana Hoosiers Betting NCAA Football Odds

So far this season, Mel Tucker has turned heads.  Tucker could end up as the National Coach of the Year.  Tucker inherited a terrible College football betting situation at Michigan State.  He was hired in February 2020, a few days AFTER National Signing Day.  And at a program that was already in steep decline.  Yet Tucker made no excuses.  Instead, he made demands.  Tucker refused to sit there and take it.  He has been a dominant recruiter and raided the transfer portal for help.  Thus, the Spartans are on their way to being a perennial Big Ten contender.
