The Pick

Over 49.5

Michigan doesn’t have a ton of a great track record of hitting the over this season, but this one looks prime to hit. The Wolverines have one of the best offensive units in the nation behind QB JJ McCarthy and RB Blake Corum. The Huskers' defense has been a bit suspect this season, giving up close to 30 points per game. With this Michigan O, that number should end much higher.
