Connecticut Huskies vs. Michigan Wolverines Predictions


Key Stat: Michigan doesn’t really love to run up the score

Tip Reasoning

  • The Wolverines tend to put their foot off the gas in blowouts
  • The Huskies are bad but they’re actually okay against the spread
  • Connecticut’s offense is average – their defense is awful – so they can score some points and cover

Welp, after two games betting into Michigan to cover, I think I learned my lesson here. They’re not going to run up the score and help bettors to cover because they’re basically getting the job done after a single quarter and pulling starters after halftime. Perhaps something to give bettors who pick the -47.5 spread here is the fact that Cade McNamara will be a man on a mission, but even then, we can’t expect Michigan to put much of an effort in the second half.

There’s an important thing to be said about the Huskies’ offense that justifies both of our picks: they’re downright bad on defense but they’re pretty average, nationwide, on offense – they move the ball well and they have a really nice running back in Nathan Carter. If they can put together one or two offensive drives that end in a touchdown, no matter if it is during garbage time, this will help the +47.5 spread. We believe that Connecticut will be safe.

Tip Reasoning

Key Stat: Michigan alone can score 60 points

  • The Wolverines have more than enough potential to hit the over by themselves
  • However, the Huskies’ offense actually allows us to dream about some 10 to 14 points
  • It’s not impossible for Connecticut to find the end zone in a couple of garbage-time drives

As we’ve just said, the Huskies have an offense that’s good enough to get on board with some touchdowns during garbage time, but it’s also important to notice that Michigan is averaging 53.5 points per game during their first two games. If they keep this average and Connecticut reaches the end zone only once, then we’re already up on our over. Let’s also not forget that, while 99% decided, there’s still a quarterback battle happening within the Wolverines between Cade McNamara and JJ McCarthy, and both will give 100% to hold the starting spot. Pick the over.
