College Football Betting - 2007 Michigan Wolverines Preview

The expectations for the 2007 Michigan Wolverines from fans and college football betting players is extremely high

It may be that nothing short of a national championship will be good enough for college football betting fans. Lloyd Carr enters his 13th year at Michigan and for the most part has disappointed college football betting fans every season. Last season the Wolverines went 11-2 and 7-5-1 against the NCAA football betting pointspread. The Wolverines under Carr again lost their two biggest games to Ohio State and then the bowl game to USC against the football betting line. NCAA College football betting players know that the offense will establish the run and then go to play-action. They have senior QB Chad Henne (60% COMP, 2,508 YDs, 22 TDs, 8 INTs) and senior RB Mike Hart (318 CAR, 1,562 YDs, 4.9 AVG, 14 TDs). The receivers are led by superstar junior Mario Manningham (38 REC, 703 YDs, 18.5 AVG, 9 TDs) and senior Adrian Arrington (40 REC, 544 YDs, 13.6 AVG, 8 TDs).

The defense is another story for college football betting players to consider. The defense lost some real talent in the off-season and must rebuild. Only one of the four upfront men, junior Terrance Taylor is back. Junior CB Morgan Trent looks ready to step in for All-American CB Leon Hall who went to the NFL. College football betting fans know that this team scored 29.2 PPG last season, while allowing opponents 15.9. The question for Michigan and football betting players will be whether or not the defense can make the key stops in 2007. College football betting fans know that the three key players in 2007 are senior RB Mike Hart, senior QB Chad Henne and junior WR Mario Manningham. The best defensive player will probably bet senior LB Shawn Crable.

Michigan gets the type of national respect from college football betting fans reserved for the best teams in the country but they can’t win the big games under Carr. Since winning the 1997 national title, Michigan has come up short for football betting fans. College football betting players see Michigan putting up 40 points per game in 2007 while the defense gives up 20 or so. The only real tough road game is at Wisconsin so Michigan will be expected to go unbeaten for fans and college football betting players. Before mid-November, the three road games for football betting fans are at Northwestern, Illinois and Michigan State. They do have games against Oregon, Notre Dame and Penn State but all are at home for college football betting fans to consider. The two games at the end decide the season for Michigan fans and college football betting players. They are at Wisconsin and have Ohio State at home in key college football betting action.
