Moneyline: MICH: (-1700) | IND: (+890)
Spread: MICH: -21.5 (-110) | IND: -21.5 (-110)
Total: 58.5 — Over: (-110) | Under: (-110)
Michigan is a huge road favorite of -21.5 points on the spread and -1700 on the moneyline. A win by Indiana would return nearly 9/1 (+890) on your bet if the Hoosiers pull the big upset and win. The total is up a bit since the opener to 58.5 - right near the average for a college football game.
Michigan vs Indiana Prediction & Pick
You're paying a bigger premium to bet on Michigan now with last week's results also impacting the spread. Michigan won last year's meeting over Indiana 29-7 at home at these same odds.
Indiana has lost two straight games, but failed to cover four in a row and was fortunate to win opening week over Illinois as a 1-point favorite. Despite the adjustment in odds by FanDuel Sportsbook, Indiana's offense will have a tough time moving the ball on the ground with the league's second-worst rush offense averaging just 105 yards per game and up against Michigan's stingy defense. The Wolverines defense also has 15 sacks to rank second in the Big Ten.
Michigan's offense is strong and balanced with 222 rushing and 235 passing yards per game. Running back Blake Corum has 611 rushing yards to rank among the top 5 in the country, and his 10 rushing touchdowns leads FBS college football. After facing Iowa's strong defense, the Wolverines will be hungry to score more and continue their assault on defenseless opponents.
Final Score Prediction: Michigan: 40 | Indiana 16

Michigan vs Indiana Best Bet

Indiana continues to struggle and has covered just 1 of their last 9 home games and 1 of their last 9 games overall. They don't have the offense to keep pace but QB Connor Bazelak will be passing often again having passed at least 44 times in 4-of-5 Hoosiers games this season. He's passing for 278 yards per game, but just 52% completions and the Hoosier's offense ranks last in the Big Ten in efficiency. A few big strikes to the Hoosiers leading receiver WR Cam Camper will be needed to hang around.
I wouldn't bet on it with Michigan's strong, balanced offense able to roll up more points. Teams that out-rush their opponent by at least a 2/1 margin in the contest is a higher positive percentage profile to cover the spread. Michigan will do that in victory Saturday and make additional big plays to score more.
