Michigan vs Northwestern Prop Bets

All Michigan-Northwestern prop bets and odds are available here via FanDuel Sportsbook.


- Home Team (Northwestern) Total Points: Under 61.5 (-120): Northwestern is already a poor offensive team and that's with most of their offensive sets boiling down to getting the ball to Dererk Pardon in the post. With the post presence that Michigan has, Northwestern's entire offense is going to need to come from the perimeter, and the Wildcats just don't shoot well enough to have a big game. 

- First Half Spread: Michigan (-3) [-110]: Northwestern might be able to hang around for a bit, but Michigan is too good to let a spread this go unnoticed. The Wildcats should play some tough defense, but Michigan will likely bully its way to at least a four-point lead by halftime.
