Michi­gan over IN­DI­ANA by 10

Playbook Football (Midweek Alert) - - 2-minute Handicap -

In what was the first ever game played at night be­tween the Wolves and Spar­tans last week, Michi­gan fell as 13-point home chalk de­spite hold­ing lit­tle brother to 14 points and 252 yards of of­fense – mark­ing the 5th straight game this sea­son in which Jim Har­baugh’s de­fense has held an op­po­nent to sea­son-low yardage (FYI: this would pro­ject to IU gain­ing 317 or fewer yards this week). How­ever, de­spite the sta­tis­ti­cal sup­port, we still can’t go all in on the road with a Wolves team that dances with pair of quar­ter­backs that lit­er­ally have two left feet, or one that is a very av­er­age 5-4 SU and 3-6 ATS since late last sea­son. None­the­less, we sim­ply can’t make a case for a Hoosiers’ squad that is in Game Six when play­ing a con­fer­ence foe since 2008, 1-4 ATS be­fore fac­ing Michi­gan State and an un­pre­pared 6-16 ATS with rest dur­ing the reg­u­lar sea­son since the mid-90’s. Thus, we’ll look for Michi­gan to show some met­tle to­day in Bloom­ing­ton and im­prove to 6-1 ATS in Game Six af­fairs.
