Betting on the Michigan Wolverines (-7.5)
Record: 13-0 Overall/9-0 Conference
Jim Harbaugh is rumored to be on his way back again to the NFL, but nothing means more to him right now than leading the Wolverines to the top of the college football world. The Wolverines finished the regular season undefeated before crushing the Purdue Boilermakers in the Big Ten Championship Game. Before swallowing the Boilermakers alive, Michigan clobbered the Ohio State Buckeyes in Columbus, 45-23. The Wolverines are arguably the most balanced team in the nation. They were fifth in the nation with 40.1 points per game and third with just 13.4 points allowed per contest. The Wolverines run the ball so well, finishing the regular season sixth overall with 243.0 rushing yards per outing. Blake Corum won’t be there to lead the Wolverines’ ground attack against TCU due to injury, but Donovan Edwards should be good enough. Edwards had 216 rushing yards and two rushing touchdowns versus Ohio State.
Michigan is 5-1-1 against the spread in their last seven games after a win.
Michigan wins, 34-27.
