Indiana Vs Michigan Odds, Pick & TV InfoNoah Williams
Week 12 college football games offer many opportunities, but the Indiana Hoosiers traveling to favored Michigan Wolverines for a crucial Big Ten contest offers one of the NCAA football best bets on the board. The Week 12 college football odds favor the Wolverines by over two touchdowns. This 3:30 p.m. ET game Saturday, November 19th will be played at “The Big House” which is Michigan Stadium in Ann Arbor, Michigan holding over 109,000 fans.
This is NCAA Football, not basketball, which is why the Indiana Hoosiers have the same amount of wins as losses at 5-5 which matches the same record they have against the spread. They are facing No. 3 Michigan Wolverines with a superb 9 wins against a single loss this year. They aren’t quite as effective ATS at 6-4-0 so far this year.

Bet on Indiana Because…
Indiana’s offense is underrated, and although you don’t hear much about these Hoosiers, they are passing for over 300 yards a game and have the No. 32 overall offense in the nation. And Iowa just proved last week that this team is beatable or at least coverable this week.
There is also trouble in Michigan with an injury to starting quarterback Wilton Speight, and the Wolverines don’t seem to be howling too much about what is up. This is a player that could be done for the season, but Head Coach Jim Harbaugh has a questionable tag on him to keep his status in the air. The reports point to a broken collarbone, so expect John O’Korn to serve up the niblets to the Hoosiers.
“I never really get into that talk; I’m not a doctor,” Harbaugh said. “I’d hate to be the third person talking about these things. He remains questionable for Saturday and we’ll reevaluate after that.”
Bet on Michigan Because…
The Wolverines don’t allow most teams to have a chance in the game by making it extremely difficult to score on them. The defensive numbers are epic with Michigan giving up an average of only 113.1 yards rushing and 131.6 yards passing a game. The passing and overall defense are both No. 1 in the FBS standings.
This Michigan team is truly balanced, but let’s quit BSing around and acknowledge that it is that bad-ass defense with big furry teeth that has them still in the College Football Playoffs top rankings at No. 3. So whether Speight or O’Korn starts at QB it shouldn’t matter in nothing but a speed bump on their way to play the Ohio State Buckeyes next week.
Indiana Vs Michigan Pick
This game is giving us 2 of the Week 12 NCAA football’s best betting value, because this game has a major top play on the over-under total from my view. Indiana at Michigan OVER the total is one of the top NCAA betting picks I have seen this year.
This game is trending in almost every way possible starting with the fact that Indiana games have gone OVER the total in 19 of the last 26 games played in November and have gone over 9 of the last 13 Big Ten Conference games they played in.
Michigan has even stronger trends with the NCAA betting total going OVER in 15 of the last 18 games played overall and 9 of the last 11 played at “The Big House”. This head to head Big Ten Conference rivalry has also gone OVER the total in 4 of the last 5 games they have butted heads. You can parlay for BIG BUCKS in THE BIG HOUSE!
