According to oddsmakers from online sports book Mybookie.ag, the Wolverines are 7.5-point home favorites over the Wildcats while the over/under is currently sitting at 35 points. Northwestern enters play with a 5-0 record and is 4-1 against the spread, while Michigan is 4-1 straight up and 3-2 at the betting window.

Both of these teams have been outstanding defensively and that shouldn't change today. But there's no value in taking the under, which is sitting at a stunningly-low number for college football.

The real value is in the underdog after these two teams played to a 10-9 final a year ago. The Wildcats rank fifth in the nation in total yards allowed (247.4), seventh passing yards allowed (130.0), and first in points allowed (7.0). Even if Michigan shuts down Clayton Thorson and Co., the defense will keep Northwestern within a touchdown today.
