Bet The Central Florida Knights at +35.5 Because…
Quarterback Justin Holman tossed two touchdown passes and ran for another while Matthew Wright kicked a career-high four field goals to lead Central Florida to an emphatic 38-0 shutout win over South Carolina State on Saturday night.
Holman went 14-of-28 for 193 yards in the win and rushed for another 40 yards in the win.
Bet The Michigan Wolverines at -35.5 Because…
Quarterback Wilton Speight proved that Jim Harbaugh made the right call by naming him as the starter following his preseason battle for the job.
Speight, who beat out Houston transfer John O’Korn for the job, completed 10 of 13 passes for 145 yards and three touchdowns to lead Michigan to an emphatic 63-3 win over Hawaii in their regular season opener.
"He responded in tremendous fashion," Harbaugh said.
The Wolverines (1-0) did not reveal who would start at quarterback until the game began.
"It speaks volumes and bodes really well for our team and for his career as a quarterback," coach Jim Harbaugh said.
Expert Pick & Final Score Prediction
After getting burned by Michigan in their opener against the Rainbow Warriors, I’m going with Michigan to get the win and ATS cover over Central Florida.
The Wolverines have a stupendous defense that just won’t give up many points in this affair – or all season long for that matter.
Central Florida is 1-13 SU and 3-11 ATS in its last 14 games and 2-4 ATS in its last 6 road games. Michigan has gone 6-1 SU in its last seven games and 4-2 ATS in its last six home games.
The Wolverines will win going away for the second straight week to cover the college football betting line!
