Indiana vs Michigan betting prediction

The expansion of this game seems very high. As of this writing, Michigan has a 33.5-point lead over Indiana at home on Saturday. Indiana has been able to avoid this big blowout in their last 10 games against Michigan. The Hoosiers’ worst loss in that span was a 39-14 loss in 2019. You have to go all the way back to 2000 to find a game where Michigan beat Indiana by more than 33 points. The Wolverines beat the Hoosiers 58-0 in Ann Arbor in 2000.

Plus, Indiana hasn’t been terrible this year. In their three losses, they lost to Ohio State by 20 points, Louisville by 7 points and Maryland by 27. I don’t see it. It’s also worth noting that Michigan faces Michigan State in a rivalry game a week after their game against Indiana, so there could be some future potential there. Either way, I’ll take the Hoosiers and the points in Ann Arbor on Saturday.
