Hoosiers Hope to Halt Decades-Long Losing Streak Against Michigan

harbaugh_wolverines

The Michigan Wolverines look to extend their dominance over Indiana with a 21st straight win over the Hoosiers when these Big Ten rivals clash on Saturday in a college football Week 7 matchup at Memorial Stadium-Bloomington. The 3-2 Hoosiers aim for a third straight SU win at home while the Wolverines try to bounce back from last week’s stunning 14-10 loss to rival Michigan State as 12.5-point home chalk.

Shark Bites
  • The total has gone OVER in six of Indiana’s last seven games in Week 7.
  • Indiana is 0-5 ATS in its last five games at home after winning its most recent home game.
  • Michigan is 12-4 SU in its last 16 games against its conference.

Last week’s loss to the Spartans marked the Wolverines’ first SU defeat of the campaign, and extends their worrisome ATS record as betting favorites to 5-10 over their past 15, including a 4-7 ATS mark in their past 11 as road chalk. However, Michigan’s defense remains one of the stingiest in the nation, allowing just 13.8 ppg resulting in a 4-0 run for the UNDER in totals betting.

The Hoosiers are coming off a lopsided 27-0 win over Charleston Southern as 28.5-point home chalk, but have been outclassed by Big Ten rivals this season, surrendering 47 ppg in lopsided SU and ATS losses to Ohio State and Penn State to fall to 3-7 SU and ATS in their past 10 conference matchups.

It has been a century of misery for the Hoosiers in their rivalry with the Wolverines, posting just one SU win in 36 meetings since 1967. Indiana has also tallied just two victories in 20 home dates with Michigan since 1932, but has covered in three of five clashes at Memorial Stadium.

Opening Odds & Computer Pick

Sportsbooks such as Bovada had the Indiana Hoosiers pegged as 6.5-point underdogs in this matchup. The total, meanwhile, had yet to be posted as of writing; check the lines shortly.

A 31-21 result in favor of the Wolverines was the prediction by the OddsShark handicapping pick engine earlier this week.
