Betting on the Michigan Wolverines (+1)
Record: 8-1 Overall / 5-1 Conference
If Michigan’s confidence was rattled at all by its bitter loss to the Michigan State Spartans in Week 9, it certainly did not show in Week 10, as the Wolverines crushed the Indiana Hoosiers at home last Saturday, 29-7. Running back Hassan Haskins torched the Hoosiers’ defense for a total of 168 rushing yards and a touchdown on 27 carries. Meanwhile, quarterback Cade McNamara passed for 168 yards and two touchdowns without an interception on 10/18 completions. The Wolverines might be without a key player against Penn State, with running back Blake Corum suffering an injury against Indiana, though Michigan can still dominate on the ground with Haskins running the show out of the backfield.
Michigan entered the Hoosiers game with an average of 37.1 points per game and 239.9 rushing yards per contest. The Wolverines are also 5-3 against the spread in their last eight contests on the road.
Betting on the Penn State Nittany Lions (-1)
Record: 6-3 Overall / 3-3 Conference
Penn State stopped its bleeding with a 31-14 win Saturday against the Maryland Terrapins on the road. The Nittany Lions had suffered three losses in a row prior to that victory over the Terps, which gets Penn State back on track ahead of a big game against the Wolverines. Quarterback Sean Clifford completed just 27 of 47 passes but finished with three 363 passing yards and three touchdowns without an interception. The Nittany Lions know that they are up against a tougher opponent in their next game, but if the Wolverines will indeed be rolling without Corum, then that’s good news for Penn State’s defense. Not that Penn State can’t handle the duo of Haskins and Corum, but that scenario surely would make the Nittany Lions defense’s life a lot easier. The Nittany Lions had just allowed 48 rushing yards to Maryland. It was also 45th in the nation entering Week 10 with just 3.9 rushing yards allowed per carry.
Penn State is 7-3 against the spread in its last 10 games overall.
Michigan wins, 28-24.
