2013 Michigan Preview Over/Under Total Wins

League: NCAA Football

How great is Michigan’s football and overall sports programs?  Well tradition can only take you so far in today’s game. Coaches need to win and win now. Brady Hoke’s first year was a success as he went 11-2  and  also reached the Sugar Bowl. Then last year a major step backwards as Michigan went 8-5 and lost in the Outback bowl to South Carolina 33-28.

Denard Robinson is NFL bound leaving the job to talented Devin Gardner who filled in nicely for Robinson during his injury’s last season. Gardner is one of six returning offensive starters that averaged close to 29 points per game last season. Freshman Derrick Green takes over the backfield for Michigan and this guy is a stud I expect huge things from Michigan running the ball this season.

Defense for Michigan returns six starters from a defense that only allowed under 20 points a game last season.  Michigan was 6-7 ats last season as bettors lost money backing the Wolverines.

Michigan has drawn a brutal schedule this season in the Big Ten as they travel to Penn State and to Northwestern both games should be awesome add to that a game against hated rival Notre Dame and folks you have a tough schedule. They also play at home against Ohio State and at Michigan State both as underdogs.

They play Notre Dame week two and that game will be the season for Michigan as it will tell us truly what kind of team Michigan has.  I defiantly think if Michigan wins the legends division this season no one can say they had a soft schedule.

I see a 8-4 regular season for Michigan and a bowl win to take them to 9 wins. The season total set for wins is sitting at 9.5 so I like Michigan to go Under 9.5 as a play. Michigan is a very talented team but that schedule will cost them dearly this year.  Play on the Under in wins here. Chase Diamond
