Week 7 College Football Betting Lines & Preview for Michigan-Indiana.

Week 7 College Football Betting Lines & Preview for Michigan at Indiana

Written by on October 11, 2017

The biggest team in college football are fortunate in that they are able to recruit the best talent every year, but there often comes a time when they are unable to fill the gaps left when players leave the college game in favor of the NFL draft. The Michigan Wolverines have come close to the playoffs under coach Jim Harbaugh, but the sense was that they were going to struggle a little this season after losing so many big games last season. Their perfect start to the season was broken last weekend with a loss to Michigan State, which will almost certainly kill any playoff aspirations that they had this season, but still, they are the College Football betting favorites for Week 7.They will get the opportunity to bounce back this coming Saturday when they head into Indiana to face a Hoosiers team that they have now beaten in each of their 20 previous meetings. The Wolverines have the odds by their side to make it 21 straight against Indiana, as they are a 7-point favorite in NCAAF odds, with the point total set at 47.5.

Why bet on the Michigan Wolverines?

The big question that Michigan needs to answer this weekend is if they are good enough to bounce back from what was a very poor performance in a 14-10 loss to the Michigan State Spartans. Even though Michigan had won their opening 4 games prior to that slip, you got the sense that a loss was coming. The Wolverines have not been particularly effective on the offensive side of the football all season, and it has been their defense that has been doing all the stellar work.This meeting with Indiana would appear to be the perfect tonic for getting over a loss, especially when you consider how much they have dominated the Hoosiers over the years. Over the last 10 meetings, the Wolverines have beaten Indiana by an average of 16 points per game, which would suggest that the 7-point spread here is a bit of a bargain. Michigan is 9-3 SU in their last 12 road games and ae 6-3 ATS in their last 9 games away from home.

Why bet on the Indiana Hoosiers?

While Indiana is coming into this one with a 3-2 record, it should be noted that their wins have come against teams that they would be expected to beat. They have not fared so well in the losses, both of which came against ranked opponents. Perhaps more importantly, they were not particularly competitive in those games. The Hoosiers started the season with a 49-21 thumping at the hands of the Ohio State Buckeyes before getting pounded 45-14 by the Penn State Nittany Lions in Week 4.The Hoosiers are not College Football Betting favorites for Week 7. They were able to bounce back from each of those big losses with a win, proving that they are a confident bunch, although just not talented enough to hang with the big boys. As mention earlier, Indiana has lost 20-straight to the Michigan Wolverines, and while streaks are made to be broken, it’s tough to imagine it happening this weekend. It certainly doesn’t help that the Hoosiers are just 1-4 ATS in their last 5 games at home.

Expert College Football Betting Pick & Final Score Prediction

The Michigan Wolverines are sure to come into this one with a bit of a chip on their shoulder after last week’s disappointing performance, and I think they will recover nicely with a win here. I also believe that they will cover and that the point total will creep slightly over the 48.Score: Michigan Wolverines 33 – Indiana Hoosiers 17
