UConn vs Michigan Week 3 Game Info

2022 NCAA College Football Game
UConn Huskies (1-2) vs. No. 4 Michigan Wolverines (2-0)
Date: Saturday, Sept. 17, 2022
Time: 12:00 p.m. ET
Venue: Michigan Stadium — Ann Arbor, MI
Coverage: ABC

Week 3 of the 2022 NCAA college football season includes a showdown between the UConn Huskies and No. 4 Michigan Wolverines. UConn only put up 202 yards of offense in a loss to the Syracuse Orange last weekend and will look to see improvement from quarterback Zion Turner in this matchup.

Meanwhile, Michigan has named J.J. McCarthy as the starting quarterback moving forward after he outplayed Cade McNamara through the first two games. The Wolverines have put up at least 51 points in each of their wins and have their eyes set on earning a Big Ten conference title in December.

Michigan enters this contest as the clear favorite on the moneyline and the spread. This 12 p.m. ET clash also features a total of 60.5 points, which is above average compared to this week's college football projected totals.

UConn vs Michigan Prediction & Pick

This is about as lopsided as any matchup on the Week 3 college football slate. UConn enters this contest with only two wins in their last 19 games, while Michigan enters this contest looking for its 10th home win in a row. The home crowd should help the Wolverines build a big lead early on here.

McCarthy completed 11 of his 12 pass attempts for 226 yards and 3 touchdowns against Hawaii and should have no trouble picking apart this Huskies' defense. With the motivation to showcase why he was named the starter in the back of his mind, look for the 19-year-old to keep his foot on the gas.

Final Score Prediction: UConn: 7 | Michigan: 51

UConn vs Michigan Betting Trends

- UConn is 0-8 straight up in its last eight away games.
- The total has hit the over in five of UConn's last seven games.
- Michigan is 12-4 against the spread (ATS) in its last 16 games.
- The total has hit the under in five of Michigan's last six Saturday home games.

UConn vs Michigan Best Bet

All NCAAF betting lines, odds and prop bets are available on FanDuel Sportsbook.

Betting on a spread that is set in the upper 40's can be risky, so opting to shift gears to the point total makes sense. The under has hit in each of UConn's last seven games against a Big Ten opponent. The under has also hit in four of Michigan's last five games against an independent (FBS) opponent.

Michigan is going to keep their foot on the gas in this game, but the Wolverines have a good shot of shutting the Huskies out. That would mean head coach Jim Harbaugh's team would have to put up over 60 points on their own. Back the under as UConn will struggle to get anything going on offense.

Bet: Under 60.5 Points (-110)
