College football betting on Saturday includes a Big Ten matchup on ABC television as Michigan hosts Illinois.
The Wolverines have had a lot of success recently against Illinois, winning seven of the last eight games according to college football betting statistics. Gamblers that bet on college football should notice that Michigan is only 4-3-1 against the college football betting spread though in those games.
College football betting stats show that Michigan at home against Illinois has won three of the last four games. This decade the teams have met six times but only twice at the “Big House” according to college football betting information. Michigan has won and covered both of those games according to college football betting stats. Both of those games went over the college football betting number.
Michigan has struggled under new head coach Rich Rodriguez. It is definitely going to take him some time to get his system in place. Quarterback Steven Threet does not look to be the long-term answer and running back Sam McGuffie is nothing special. It is nothing like what he had at West Virginia with White and Slaton.
The offensive talent in this college football betting matchup is on the side of Illinois. Quarterback Juice Williams can make big plays at any time and running back Daniel Dufrene is solid. If Illinois can avoid turning the ball over they have an excellent chance to win this game according to experts that bet on college football. It is rare to see Michigan as a home underdog in college football betting but based on their play this season that could be the case in this game. Gamblers that bet on college football will need to monitor the college football betting line this week leading up to Saturday’s game.
Neither Illinois nor Michigan is thought of as a contender for the Big 10 title this season among gamblers that bet on college football but both are in the running to make it to a bowl game. This is a key game in that regard especially since both teams have much tougher college football betting matchups down the road.
