Week 10 of the 2022 NCAA college football season includes a Big Ten showdown between the No. 5 Michigan Wolverines and Rutgers Scarlet Knights. Michigan leaned on its defense in a 29-7 win over Michigan State on Saturday. The Wolverines allowed less than 18 points for the fourth game in a row.

Meanwhile, Rutgers failed to get anything going on offense in a 31-0 loss to Minnesota in Week 9. Quarterbacks Gavin Wimsatt and Noah Vedral each threw an interception and combined for just 86 yards through the air. It was the Scarlet Knights' fourth conference loss across five Big Ten battles.

Michigan vs Rutgers Prediction & Pick

This is a matchup made in heaven for Michigan's defense as Rutgers is averaging just 13.6 points on 266.1 yards per game. Those are each the sixth-worst marks in the entire country. On the other side, the Wolverines are only allowing 11.5 points on 250.3 yards per game. Those are each top-3 marks.

Expecting the Scarlet Knights to suddenly figure out their offensive woes is unrealistic. This is a team that was held to 134 total yards last week and scored less than 11 points for the third time in its last four games. Michigan is 7-0 straight up in its last seven games against Rutgers, so expect a blowout.

Final Score Prediction: Michigan: 35 | Rutgers: 7

Rutgers is only 2-5 against the spread (ATS) in its last five Saturday home games, while Michigan is 12-5-1 ATS in its last 18 games overall. Head coach Jim Harbaugh knows how important it is to keep making statements to the College Football Playoff committee with one big victory after another.
