Central Florida is not only 1-0 straight up, but they’re also 1-0 ATS after they beat South Carolina State 38 to 0 in their first game of the season. Michigan looked like a College Football Playoff squad when beating Hawaii 63 to 3 in their first game of the season. Like Central Florida, the Wolverines are 1 and 0 ATS.

Bet Central Florida at +35.5 Because…
The Knights offense was brilliant in the win over South Carolina State. Central Florida racked up an impressive 462 total yards. The Knights rushed for 197 yards while they passed for 265 yards. It was a very good performance from the offense. In order to keep this close, Central Florida is going to have to score points.
Bet Michigan at -35.5 Because…
Michigan’s defense is still great. The Michigan Wolverines have a new defensive coordinator. It doesn’t matter. One of the best defensive units in the nation last season is one of the best defensive units in the nation this season. Hawaii scored their 3 points in the 4th quarter. By that time, the Wolverines had built a 56 to 0 lead.
Expert Pick & Final Score Prediction
It’s nice to see Central Florida start off the season with a win. The Knights went 0 and 12 last season. Unfortunately for Central Florida the team that they face this Saturday isn’t South Carolina State.
It was apparent in Michigan’s stunning 63 to 3 win over Hawaii that the Wolverines want to dominant opponents this season. Michigan is intent on getting into the College Football Playoff. Destroying opponents is one way to get noticed. The Wolverines won’t let up versus Central Florida.
If this game were in Central Florida, Michigan might only beat the Knights by 35 to 42 points. Because it’s in Ann Arbor, I think that the Wolverines roll to at least a 50-point win.
