While point spreads may be nothing but talking points and things to bet on, I always find it interesting to follow them as one facet to guage how people feel about our team. Saw that Michigan has opened as 45.5 favorites over the Minutemen. This is the largest recorded spread in school history according to the full article at AnnArbor.com. More than a 6 touchdown favorite? With our offensive line, I'm not too confident about that. If this game is close, I may hit the panic button.
The 17th-ranked Wolverines opened up this week as 45 1/2-point favorites against the Minutemen, the largest early point spread of any game in the country this week.
On top of that, Michigan's listing as more than a six-touchdown favorite this week is the largest recording point spread in school history, according to R.J. Bell, the Founder and CEO of popular betting site Pregame.com.
