Why bet on Michigan versus Indiana?

Michigan has risen to Alabama and Georgia level. Teams like the Crimson Tide and Bulldogs average over 40 points on offense and hold teams to less than 14 on defense. So far this season, the Wolverines are averaging over 45 points per game while holding opponents to less than 12 points each contest. Not only that, but Michigan has a single turnover in their 5 games.

Why bet on Indiana versus Michigan?

The Hoosiers don’t have the talent to beat a team as solid as the Michigan Wolverines. But the home squad has 22 points to work with. It’s also worth noting that Indiana started the season going 3-0. It wasn’t until a game against Cincinnati that the Hoosiers lost. Losing to Nebraska in their last had to hurt. So expect a much better effort from the Hoosiers versus the Wolverines than what they showed against the Cornhuskers.

4-Michigan Wolverines at Indiana Hoosiers Final Betting Prediction

When the Wolverines hit the road to take on the Hoosiers, the Maize & Blue don’t always perform their best. Michigan is 1-3-1 against the spread in the last 5 meetings in Indiana.

The trend doesn’t favor Michigan but before taking the points, it’s important to note that the 2022 version of Michigan is much different than any other Michigan team Indiana has faced at home in the past 5 meetings.

The Wolverines blasted Indiana 29-7 in Ann Arbor last year last season. No Aidan Hutchinson in 2022 means Michigan’s defense may not be as good this season as it was last, but the offense is much more electric because quarterback J.J. McCarthy is the full time starter.

Indiana yields an average of 30.4 points per game. Michigan should score at least 48 and will have a chance to score more than 50. Take the points only if you believe Indiana can score 30, which to isn’t impossible but is highly unlikely.  Michigan wins by no less than 24 points. 

NCAAF Week 6 Pick: Michigan -21.5
