Michigan Odds & Best Bets

The Michigan Wolverines collected their second straight Big Ten title last season and looked prepared to give the Georgia Bulldogs their biggest test to date in the National Championship before being surprisingly upset by TCU in the CFP Semifinals.

Michigan returns a ton of key pieces this season including quarterback J.J. McCarthy, one of the top offensive lines in the nation, and running back Blake Corum, who was in contention for the Heisman before going down with an injury late in the year.

Is this the year Michigan breaks through and gets crowned National Champions?

Michigan: Win National Championship (+1000)

Michigan to win the National Championship is one of my CFB best bets this off-season. They return most of their key pieces from last season, made some timely adds in the transfer portal, and have proven to themselves – and the world – they’re on the same level as Ohio State.

The dedication of Jim Harbaugh to run the ball behind the hard-nosed physical offensive line has not only saved his job but put this team into national title contention. And with J.J. McCarthy in Year 2 at the helm, the offense should be more opened up.

Michigan: Win Big Ten Conference Tournament (+170)

After 8 straight losses, Michigan has now gotten past Ohio State in two straight years and turned the tides against their archrival. They’ve also dominated the previous two Big Ten title winners with a 43-22 win over Purdue last year, and a 42-3 win over Iowa the year before.

The biggest challenge for this team will be Ohio State, who they’ll play at home, but a road trip to Happy Valley could present some challenges late in the season as well. Michigan will be a 10+ point favorite against any Big Ten West team – at least as of August – and at this price, I’m willing to back the Wolverines to make it three straight Big Ten titles.

Michigan To Make CFP Playoff (+115)

Caesars Sportsbook • WAGER: 1 unit

For the first time since its creation, we saw two Big Ten teams get into the College Football Playoff last season. And even if Michigan loses to Ohio State – or drops another game early – I think it’s a possibility we see it again.

The SEC is deeper than in years previous so we could see some cannibalization, the Big 12 doesn’t have a true premier team that is going to run the table, and the Pac-12 hasn’t been represented in the CFP Playoff since Washington in 2017.

Although imperfect we have seen the committee take previous years into account, and a one-loss Michigan team fits the mold to reap that reward.
