Bet on Michigan vs. Indiana

Michigan’s offense looked like a mess last week. While the weather wasn’t ideal, it was the quarterback play that was an issue. This week the Wolverines face an Indiana defense that has been pretty good. The Hoosiers struggled against Penn State and Ohio State, but those offenses are on another level compared to Michigan. The U-M defense should be up to the challenge of stopping Indiana. Michigan’s defense is for real, but the its offense has yet to show it can score consistently.
