Fiesta Bowl TCU vs Michigan Prediction and Odds 2022
Our Fiesta Bowl prediction is from The Duel's official TCU vs Michigan betting preview.
These are two powerhouses going up against one another in the Fiesta Bowl. TCU's offense has been one of the most explosive in the country this season. Averaging over 40 points and 473 yards per game, Duggan's Horned Frogs are a handful for any defense.
However, the Wolverines are one of the few teams equipped to match them, posting nearly identical PPG and YPG. The difference in this contest will likely be Michigan's dominant defense. Jim Harbaugh's group ranks in the top three for fewest points and yards per game allowed, making them a threat on both sides of the ball.
TCU showed its weaknesses in the Big 12 Championship and Michigan should control this contest throughout.
