Why Bet on Bowling Green versus Michigan

Last week, Bowling Green bounced back from a 34-24 loss to Liberty with a 38-15 victory over Eastern Illinois. Although neither Liberty nor Eastern Illinois comes close to the talent at Michigan, Bowling Green has shown they can score points.

Not only that, but the Falcons have 40 points to work with to get a win against the spread. Michigan may not want to beat Bowling Green by 41 points. So the spread line could be the most important factor in the Falcons’ favor.

Why Bet on Michigan versus Bowling Green

Although 40 points is a lot, Michigan sends the best defense in college football to the field. The Wolverines rank second in points allowed.

Bowling Green’s defense gave up 34 to Liberty and 15 to Eastern Illinois. So even if the favored squad doesn’t try to beat Bowling Green by 40 points. They may do so by default because Blake Corum, Donovan Edwards, and J.J. McCarthy will play at least a half and a half might be all the Maize & Blue require to grab a 49-0 lead.

Michigan vs Bowling Green Final Betting Prediction

Michigan is undefeated but the Wolverines are either being decent sportsmen or they are making an effort not to run up the score. It could be a bit of both.

The Wolverines only dropped 35 onto UNLV in a 35-7 win. In the game before, Michigan beat East Carolina 30-7. So the Wolverines are playing great football. They just aren’t trying to decimate opponents, which should lead to a Bowling Green cover.

The Falcons’ offense is every bit as good as UNLV’s. It might be as good as AAC squad East Carolina’s. In any case, once Michigan gets a 28-0 or 35-0 lead, the Wolverines will pull their offensive starting star players and coast to a win. The Maize & Blue take the straight up victory. Bowling Green covers.
