Indiana hasn’t beaten Michigan since 1987. The MyBookie betting odds think Michigan will continue its series dominance, though not by a rout. The Wolverines are 6.5-point favorites against the Hoosiers, with the over/under at 40.5 points.
Michigan seems wounded after losing to Michigan State. QB John O’Korn, who’s starting for the injured Wilton Speight, threw three interceptions in the loss with rainy conditions. However, the Wolverines still have a dominant defense. A desperate Michigan will also be ready for the Hoosiers.
