Actually the initial odds were 7 1/2, but at least one site has it at 6 1/2.

Well, the estimated probability of a win against Ohio State on Massey right now is 42%, which sort of fits my mood about this game and how close it could be. We'll need some stellar performances obviously, but it doesn't feel like an outright loss on paper to me. Same vibe I get from Sagarin, which if you do the quick math would estimate a 5-point or so margin in favor of OSU.

20-14 Michigan sounds about right. Speight to Peppers for a TD on a slant pass. Peppers punt return for a TD. Finally, Barrett throws and ill-advised pass to Jourdan Lewis that is returned for a TD, but the extra point gets blocked. Semi vanilla offense, stout defense, solid special teams gets us the victory. Sound familiar?

defending the edge yesterday, I am still concerned about them getting on the perimeter, away from Peppers.   the last few weeks, opposing teams have tried to eliminate him from the equation by putting out a slot receiver to his side and running away from him. finding a way to get him back into the fight would help.

 M's success on Defense will hinge on 2 things:

1. stopping the run (will need help from the corners and safeties to do this on the perimeter)

2. the front 4-collapsing the pocket while maintaining rush lanes.

Vegas typically has people setting lines that know what they are doing.

I guess they've been watching.

Playing OSU after they have a bad game under Meyer is not a great thing.

Still, hoping we find a way to get it done.
