LINE: Michigan -38.5, o/u: 47.5
POINT TOTAL PICK: Over
There’s a chance the Michigan defense keeps Rutgers to a big, flaming 0.
The Scarlet Knight O has yet to score more than 17 points against an FBS team, and it’s not about to go off now against the nation’s hottest defense. Meanwhile, the Rutgers defense has been able to keep games from getting out of hand. No now has scored more than 38 in the last five games.
But all you’re just looking for 48 points.
There’s a reasonable shot that Michigan can take care of that all by itself. At the very least, it should be in the 40s if it comes out wanting to put this away. As amazing as the defense is, if it allowed ten points somehow – maybe even on a special teams play, anything – the 47.5 won’t be an issue.
