Here are a couple of college football Week 11 underdogs that have a solid chance to throw a scare into a heavily favored foe and maybe pull off a big moneyline upset on Saturday.

The odds listed are the best offered at DraftKings, FanDuel, PointsBet, and BetMGM.

Rutgers vs. Michigan State Betting Line: Point Spread, Total, Moneyline, Pick

The host Spartans (4-5 straight up/3-4-2 against the spread) are still reeling from the many indefinite suspensions in the aftermath of the postgame chaos that occurred two weeks ago at Michigan.

Then last week, MSU overachieved in a victory at Illinois, hanging on at the end to beat the then-16th-ranked Illini 23-15 as a 16.5-point underdog.

Rutgers (4-5 SU/4-4-1 ATS), meanwhile, had one of the stiffest defenses in the nation until getting walloped at home by Michigan 52-17 last week. But the Scarlet Knights did lead at halftime, which was an accomplishment because it was the first time the Wolverines trailed at intermission this season.

As far as defenses are concerned, Rutgers is still highly ranked at No. 18 and MSU is 106th.

In a low-scoring matchup, the visitors should stick close with a team that’s very likely to be short-handed.

The visiting Wildcats (1-8, 4-5 ATS) are on an eight-game losing streak since upsetting Nebraska 31-28 on opening day as a 12-point underdog.

Minnesota, meanwhile, is 6-3 (5-4 ATS) but has feasted on relatively weak competition much of the year.

Also, the winningest quarterback in Gophers history, Tanner Morgan, was knocked out of last week’s 20-13 victory over Nebraska with an upper-body injury. With his status uncertain for Saturday, that point spread seems extra high.

Especially against a Northwestern team that lost only 21-7 to Ohio State last Saturday in viciously windy conditions. The Wildcats even outgained Buckeyes.

With a weather forecast calling for a wind chill temperature near single digits, it seems too much to ask Minnesota to go on a scoring binge.
