NWestern/U-M Line Movement
The total for 18 Michigan’s game with No. 13 Northwestern today started low and has gotten even lower. Here is a look at how the odds have changed over the week.
According to oddsmakers at MyBookie, Michigan is the favorite at home in this game, as the Wolverines are currently getting odds of -10 points against the Wildcats. The over/under total is listed at just 34 points. These two meet today at 3:30PM ET on the Big Ten Network.
The opening spread for this game had Michigan as an 8-point favorite on Sunday. The spread then dipped to 7.5 points early in the week before making a surprising jump up to 10 points on Friday and holding there. With the total so low, it's somewhat strange to see the spread as large as it is. Northwestern is holding opponents under 10 points per game as is.
The total opened at 36 points, which is low on its own, but that was the highest the number was all week. The total held at 35 points for most of the week but then dipped to the low of 34 on Friday, where it currently sits.
