12 games. The oddsmakers favored the Wolverines each time.

The same held true Sunday evening, as No. 7 Michigan opened as a 7.5-point favorite over No. 10 Florida for the Peach Bowl. The line has since dropped according to VegasInsider.com.

With no Rashan Gary in Atlanta on Dec. 29, the line could continue to fall.

The College Football Playoff committee selected Michigan (10-2, 8-1) and the Gators (9-3, 6-3) as at-large bids for the New Year’s Six bowl.

Jim Harbaugh and company are 6-6 against the spread this season, and haven't covered since the 42-7 drubbing of Penn State on Nov. 3.

Unlike Michigan, Florida ended the season on with a rivalry win, dispatching Florida State 41-14. Dan Mullen has turned a 4-7 Jim McElwain team into a top-10 outfit in his first season in Gainesville.

The Gators are 8-4 against the spread this season, covering their last two games.
