Jim Harbaugh finally got the monkey off of his back last season. Michigan finally beat Ohio State, won the Big 10, and clinched a spot in the College Football Playoffs. Although they lost to Georgia in the CFP semifinals, after some disappointing seasons in Ann Arbor, Harbaugh showed everyone that he is the right man for the Michigan job.
Now everyone will be looking for Michigan to continue to grow and they’ll be expecting success every season. While they lost both coordinators from last season and there will be changes on both sides of the ball, the Wolverines are still looking to win another Big 10 title. Let’s take a closer look at what lies ahead for Michigan so you can plan your bets against their NCAAF Regular Season Wins Odds.

How Many Wins for the Wolverines?
The oddsmakers aren’t as high on the Wolverines as they were last season. This year they have set Michigan’s win total at 9.5. In order to win the Big 10, we think that the Wolverines will need to surpass this number. Let’s take a look at Michigan’s schedule for the upcoming season.
Michigan’s non conference slate to start the season shouldn’t be too difficult. They’ll open the season up hosting Colorado State. That game will be followed by a home game with Hawaii. Their final non conference game will be in Ann Arbor against the University of Connecticut. If Michigan loses one of these games, it could spell big trouble for Harbaugh and company.
Michigan’s Big 10 schedule isn’t as tough as it could be. They open up at home against Maryland. They then hit the road for two straight games against the always-tough Iowa Hawkeyes, and then the Indiana Hoosiers.
Here is the toughest part of their conference schedule, albeit both are home games. They match up with Penn State followed by their in-state rivals the Michigan Wolverines. Prior to their season finale at Columbus against Ohio State, the Wolverines will travel to Rutgers and then host Nebraska and Illinois.
How Will 2022 Look?
While the Michigan Wolverines look like a good bet to be at or near the top of the Big 10 standings, there are still some looming questions. First off, we’re not sure who will be under center when the season starts. Cade McNamara is the incumbent, but he will be pushed by J.J. McCarthy. This could be a full-blown quarterback battle.
We talked about having two new coordinators this season, and we’re not sure what kinds of changes will be made. The new defensive coordinator has a background with the Harbaugh brothers, so we don’t anticipate much change in the defense.
Speaking of the defense, how will Michigan fill the void of not having Aiden Hutchinson and David Ojabo? Well, the good news is that they have plenty of experienced defenders returning, and Harbaugh has done a great job of recruiting. Michigan had a top-10 recruiting class, and many of them enrolled early.
With their non-conference schedule being fairly soft, and having a good Big 10 schedule, we think that Michigan’s season will once again come down to their battle with Ohio State. The winner of this one could earn themselves a shot at the College Football Playoffs again this season.
