The Michigan Wolverines were absolutely embarrassed by the Notre Dame Fighting Irish, 31-0. At this point it’s questioning time for the Wolverines, as Devin Gardner may not be the right choice at quarterback and Brady Hoke may not be the right head coach. In the loss, Gardner threw three interceptions and the entire Michigan team played with little energy and no heart. About the only bright spot right now for the Wolverines is that a running game made up of Derrick Green and De'Veon Smith is averaging an incredible 6.3 yards per carry. Still, the quarterback play has to improve if Michigan is going to turn things around. Defensively, the Michigan Wolverines are allowing 280 yards and 4.2 yards per play. Joe Bolden leads Michigan with 15 tackles and sophomore Taco Charlton has two tackles for loss.
The Redhawks are 7-18-1 ATS in their last 26 games overall and 2-8-1 ATS in their last 11 road games. The Wolverines are 8-2 ATS in their last 10 home games and 1-4 ATS in their last 5 non-conference games.
It’s really hard to trust the Michigan Wolverines after the doughnut they dropped last week. However, the Redhawks are absolutely brutal and should fold in a big way on the road in the Big House.
I wouldn’t touch this game because of the large number, but gun to my head, I’m backing the Wolverines in a blowout win.
