After back-to-back blowout victories, the Michigan Wolverines are heavily favored over the Indiana Hoosiers this weekend at Michigan Stadium.

The Wolverines opened as 28-point favorites over Indiana, according to

The line is currently at -27.5 at BetOnline.

The Wolverines edged out a squeaker in Bloomington last season, defeating the Hoosiers 27-20 in overtime. It was Karan Higdon’s coming out party, as he rushed for 200 yards and scored the game-winner.

The Hoosiers have two victories over Big Ten teams this season — Maryland this past weekend by two points at home, and Rutgers in late September by seven points on the road.

It’s a different story for Michigan, as the Wolverines have been dominating teams pretty much all season. Michigan’s defense has given up 10 or fewer points in half its games, and the offense has put up at least 20 points in every game but the loss at Notre Dame.

It looks like Vegas thinks this will be a tuneup game before the season finale in Columbus. What say you?
