COLLEGE FOOTBALL FREE PICK: The dog is 4-0 in this series. Michigan is 8-24 ATS L32 conference games. Last year: Michigan (+1) over ILLINOIS, 31-14. The Wolverines are coming off a 44-13 win over Purdue last week, improving their record to 3-2 overall and 1-0 in the Big 10. While they certainly should win this game at home, Illinois should provide some resistance against a poor defense. QB Nathan Scheelhaase has had a rough start but is one of the most dangerous dual-threat quarterbacks in the nation. He’s the type of quarterback that gives the Wolverines’ defense all kinds of trouble. Last week against Wisconsin, Scheelhaase threw for 178 yards and ran for 84 with one score. He’ll have a good enough game to cover the 24.
