All of the teams currently sitting in the top 4 ahead of the big games this weekend is in action, so for them, it’s simple, which is that if they win, they are in. That includes the Michigan Wolverines, who are looking for their 3rd straight appearance in the playoffs. To get there, they might not necessarily need to win, depending on what happens in the other games, but they will not be willing to take any chances against the Iowa Hawkeyes, who are not going to be an easy out. The Wolverines are 22-point favorites, with the total for this one set at 35.

Why bet on the Michigan Wolverines

At this point of the proceedings, you have to think that the Wolverines are the team to beat ahead of the postseason. They have been nothing short of brilliant all season long and don’t really appear to have any glaring weaknesses. Their defense is stifling, which is usually what you look for in a team that is on the path to a National Championship. The Wolverines are a clear favorite here, which is no real surprise when you consider that they have now won 20 in a row versus teams from the Big Ten. That includes going 11-0 against teams from the West Division. The Wolverines have not been as dominant against Iowa, though, going 4-2 SU in their last meetings. In those 6 games, they covered the spread 5 times. As good as the Michigan defense has been, the OVER has still hit in 7 of the last 8 games for Michigan.



Why bet on the Iowa Hawkeyes

I think it’s fair to suggest that the Hawkeyes are coming into this game with very little pressure on their shoulders. Yes, they will want to win this thing, but no one is really giving them much of a shot at doing so. The Hawkeyes do not have what you would call a prolific offense, but their defense is stout and very much among the best in the country, so there is a chance that they can keep this thing close and maybe get something out of it. The Hawkeyes come into this one on a 4-game win streak, as well as winning 7 of their last 8, ending the regular season at 10-2 overall. The Hawkeyes have been a very solid pick against the spread, covering in 4 of their last 5 as an underdog, as well as in 5 of their last 6 played in the month of December. The UNDER has come up in 4 of their last 5 games against Michigan.


College Football Expert Pick and Series Prediction

The Wolverines are a big favorite for a reason, but given how good the Iowa defense is, I have to say that the spread makes me a little nervous. I like Michigan to win and Iowa to cover, with the OVER hitting in this one.
