College Football Week 2 Picks: Sparty has home field advantage

MSU home field should be the difference between W & L. 
LAS VEGAS -- Last season, the Spartans failed to hold a 24-18 halftime lead against the Ducks at Eugene and got outscored 28-3 in the second half. Things figure to be a little different this time around. The main reason is because Marcus Mariota is playing in the NFL and Oregon has to rely on transfer QB Vernon Adams Jr., who is a senior but has never played in a game this big. The next reason is the night crowd in East Lansing, which will quickly remind Adams that he's not at Eastern Washington any more.

Between the crowd and one of the best defenses in the nation, the Spartans should win this game rather easily. Senior QB Connor Cook will put points on the board against a less-than-stellar Oregon defense. Michigan State, behind Connor, has been excellent against the point spread the past two seasons at 18-8 ATS. You can trust him to get the job done.

Despite the quality of the Spartans defense, the totals on their games have apparently been too low, as 13 of their past 16 have gone OVER. Still, the only play in this one is Michigan State -3.5.

Predicted score: Michigan State 41-28
