Rarely do I see a Michigan line where I don't think either "that's about right" or "Michigan should be favored by less," but this is one of them. I think opening at -11 is nuts, and even -13.5 is still too little. Given that NW lost at home to both Duke (by 14) and Akron (by 5), and that the stadium will probably have more Michigan fans than Wildcats fans, I think this one feels like -17 or -18.
Is NW getting a player or players back from injury? Is this just skepticism because Michigan has been crap on the road the last few years (decade), or what??
