Bet the Michigan Wolverines Season Wins Total at BetRivers Sportsbook
While there’s no replacing defensive dominators Aidan Hutchinson and David Ojabo, the Wolverines are stockpiled with talent that will make the transition a bit easier. New DC Jesse Minter has got a pair of tanks up front in Mazi Smith and Kris Jenkins, and the LB core also looks to be in solid shape with both Junior Colson and Nikhai Hill-Green moving up in the rotation. There are concerns in the secondary with a number of playmakers having since departed, but UM recruits well in the back seven, so look for the unit to start putting things together once B1G play kicks off.
Once Michigan starts the year off 3-0 after demoralizing a trio of cupcakes, the schedule finally starts to get interesting. Maryland and @Iowa lead into a likely scrimmage in Bloomington with the Hoosiers before taking on Penn State and Michigan State, both at home. @Rutgers, Nebraska, and Illinois close it out leading up to the Big Game.
Michigan “should” be unscathed heading into that home game with Big Red. Can Mel Tucker and the Spartans pull it off again? I wouldn’t bet on it! I have the Wolverines pegged as 10+ game winners this season and believe the experience of last season is what ultimately gets them by the few tough spots on the schedule.
Even if OSU exacts revenge in the finale, they’ll still go on to cash over bettor’s tickets.
Michigan Wolverines Season Win Total Prediction: Over 9.5
