The Wolverines opened the day as a 7-point favorite over the Hawkeyes, according to Vegas Insider, with the over/under set at 47. At the time of this posting, Michigan is down to a 5-point favorite with the over/under still at 47.
The 3-1 Wolverines come into the game with a little bit of momentum after beating Rutgers 52-0 on Saturday, which led to Scarlet Knights head coach Chris Ash’s firing.
Iowa is 4-0 on the year, with victories over two opponents Michigan has faced already, beating Middle Tennessee 48-3 and Rutgers 30-0.
The last time Michigan and Iowa faced off was in 2016, a game in which Wilton Speight got injured in the second half and the Hawkeyes wound up winning 14-13. Iowa is a fundamentally sound team that should be respected year in and year out with head coach Kirk Ferentz leading the program.
Saturday’s game in Ann Arbor is scheduled for a 12 p.m. kickoff and will be aired on FOX.
