The Michigan Wolverines were a three-touchdown favorite against the Western Michigan Broncos and covered that 17-point spread the folks in Vegas set for them last week. Now, with the Washington Huskies coming to town next weekend, the betting-makers have made Michigan a favorite at the Big House for the second week in a row.
According to the opening lines posted from Circa Sports, the Wolverines initially opened as a 5-point favorite for the big matchup against Washington next Saturday. The over/under is currently set at 51.
Last weekend, Washington (0-1) dropped its first game of the season in pretty bad fashion to FCS opponent Montana, 13-7. Meanwhile, the Wolverines dominated the Broncos at home to the tune of a 47-14 victory in front of 109,000+ fans.
