The Wolverines will try and get things turned around after inexplicably losing to Illinois in college football odds a week ago. Here are some of the numbers for this game between Purdue and Michigan that can be seen on the Big 10 Network.
College football betting lines favor Michigan by 5.5 points against Purdue. The Wolverines were looking strong and in good position for a bowl game but two straight losses have put the heat on Michigan head coach Rich Rodriguez. This is suddenly a must-win game for Michigan. It may not be an easy game in college football betting lines considering Purdue has won two of their last three games although they were blown off the field last week in a college football betting lines loss to Wisconsin.
In this college football betting lines series the Wolverines have won five of their last six games but they did lose last year 48-42. The last two years this game has been very high scoring in college football odds with 90 points being scored a year ago and 69 points being scored two years ago. That could easily be the case again in this college football betting lines matchup since neither team can play defense.
Purdue normally is very good in the month of November in college football betting lines. The Boilermakers are 12-4 ATS in their last 16 games in November. Purdue has not played well in the Big 10 of late as they are 1-4 vs. the college football betting lines in their last 5 conference games. The Boilermakers are 0-4 ATS in their last 4 meetings at Michigan.
Michigan has not been a good team laying points at home in college football betting lines. The Wolverines are 2-6 ATS in their last 8 games as a home favorite. Michigan has also struggled in the Big 10 of late vs. college football odds as they are 1-6 ATS in their last 7 conference games. In this series, the home team is 7-1-1 in college football betting lines in their last 9 meetings.
Even though Purdue has no defense, six of their last seven games overall have gone under the college football betting lines. Four of the last five Michigan games though have gone over the college football odds total.
