The college football odds for the game have the Wolverines favored by a comfortable margin to pick up the win in this one.
College Football Odds
Total: 55.5 points
Michigan has continued to play like a Top 5 team this season, they rank third in the Associated Press poll and should just beat up on Illinois here.
The Fighting Illini are 2-4, they dropped four straight games (three decent opponents) before beating Rutgers last week to get back on track. There’s no chance of them winning this game and the best player, senior quarterback Wes Lunt, did not play against the Scarlet Knights last week and his status is doubtful for this one.
Michigan sports one of the best defenses in the country. The secondary is great, the front seven is great and the Wolverines lead the country in total defense (213 per game), passing yards allowed per game (113.7) and points per game (10.3). Jabrill Peppers leads the way as the all-everything guy for Michigan, he leads the team with eight tackles for loss and ranks second in total tackles with 35. The Wolverines have 11 guys on the roster that have helped record a sack this season and with Don Brown as the man in charge, they will continue to bring the pressure and do it often against Illinois.
Michigan can name the score here, much like their last time out against Rutgers. It might not be 78 points, but the Wolverines should have no issues here as the Fighting Illini struggle to score.
