Wolverines are a Boon for OVER Bettors

Two teams on the opposite spectrum of things are set to collide in Week 6 as Jim Harbaugh and the Michigan Wolverines take on the Rutgers Scarlet Knights.

Shark Bites
  • Rutgers is 6-1 SU in its last seven games in Week 6.
  • Michigan is 9-2 ATS in its last 11 games after an ATS loss.
  • The total has gone UNDER in eight of Rutgers' last 11 games after consecutive losses.

Everyone knows how dominant Michigan has been when it comes to collecting victories in 2016, but totals bettors are loving them for a different reason. Dating back to last year, the Wolverines have gone OVER the total in 12 of their last 13 games.

The Wolverines are also easily dispatching lesser competition, as they’ve gone 7-0 SU in their last seven games against teams with losing records. Oddsmakers opened the maize and blue as healthy 26-point favorites for the affair.

Fans of the Scarlet Knights continue to leave home games unhappy. Rutgers is 0-5 ATS in its last five home contests after suffering a loss at High Point Solutions Stadium.

Thanks to a favorable early-season schedule, Michigan is playing its first road game of the year in Week 6. The Wolverines have gone 5-0 SU and 3-2 ATS so far at the Big House. They were able to fend off Wisconsin in Week 5, but couldn’t cover the -11.5 spread in a 14-7 triumph.

Rutgers is a program that’s in a clear rebuild, and the team is undergoing some major growing pains while doing so. The Scarlet Knights got hammered 58-0 by Ohio State in New Jersey last weekend – their most lopsided loss of the campaign. The Buckeyes were tabbed as 39-point faves in that game, meaning the -26 line for Michigan will look appealing to sports bettors who are willing to lay the chalk.
