COLLEGE FOOTBALL FREE PICK: Take Michigan. According to latest college football trends, the Wolverines are 6-1 against the spread in their last seven games versus the MAC and 4-1 ATS in their last five non-conference games. They're also 4-1 ATS in their last five games overall, 4-0 ATS in their last four home games, and 4-1 ATS in their last five games after accumulating more than 450 total yards in their previous contest. On the other side, the Zips are 2-5 against the spread in their last seven games overall and 5-11 ATS in their last 16 games on fieldturf.
The last time a MAC team rolled into the "Big House," Michigan crushed Central Michigan 59-9 in Week 1. Even though the Wolverines are coming off an emotional victory over the Fighting Irish last week, they should be focused against an overmatched Akron squad. This game should get out of hand quickly.
