Why Bet The Michigan Wolverines To Beat The Hoosiers
Michigan’s defense is going to have to carry the team for a few weeks until QB Wilton Speight can return from several broken ribs. Good thing the Wolverines ranks No. 1 nationally in total defense, allowing 213 yards per game.
Michigan gives up only 13.6 points per game. That’s good enough for seventh best in the nation in points allowed. They held Michigan State to 252 total yards a week ago and kept the Spartans to 2 of 14 on third-down conversations.
Senior QB John O’Korn is starting in place of Speight. O’Korn has completed 35 of 62 passes for 503 yards with four interceptions and one touchdown this season. He threw three interceptions Saturday in the Wolverines’ 14-10 loss to Michigan State.
Why Bet The Indiana Hoosiers To Beat The Wolverines
The Hoosiers are 3-0 against unranked teams. Nevertheless, hosting Michigan is the perfect chance to beat a ranked team this season. So far Indiana is 0-2 against ranked teams this season, losing to Ohio State and Penn State. Those losses weren’t a surprise.
Indiana held Charleston Southern scoreless last week. The Hoosiers can load up the box again against Michigan and let O’Korn beat them if he can. Last season, Indiana held O’Korn to just 7 of 16 for 59 yards.
