Michigan Wolverines vs. Indiana Hoosiers

Where: Memorial Stadium

When: Saturday, November 23, 2019, 3:30 pm ET

It’s the Big Ten Conference, and we have what could be an exciting matchup when the #15 ranked Michigan Wolverines face the Indiana Hoosiers for the 68th time in this storied rivalry. The Wolverines have won the last 23 meetings and defeated the Hoosiers by a score of 31-20 in their previous encounter.

Must Win Game For Wolverines

The #15 ranked Wolverines are still hoping for a shot at a Big Ten title, but they need a win this weekend against the Hoosiers and next weekend against #2 ranked Ohio State, and they also need the Buckeyes to lose this weekend to #9 ranked Penn State. Michigan enters this matchup riding a three-game winning streak, and they are loaded for bear and ready to smash the Hoosiers.

Indiana allows 176 passing yards per game this season, and Michigan will counter with senior quarterback Shea Patterson. The senior signal-caller gas thrown for 2157 yards with 16 touchdowns and four interceptions. Patterson has an additional 81 yards with five touchdowns with 18 sacks this season.

Senior wideout Ronnie Bell is Patterson's primary target, and he's hauled in 36 passes for 610 yards. Junior wide receiver Nico Collins has 484 receiving yards with four touchdowns, junior wide receiver Donovan Peoples-Jones has 262 yards with four touchdowns and senior tight end Nick Eubanks has 192 yards with three touchdowns this season.

The Hoosiers allow 139 rushing yards per game this season, and Michigan will turn to freshman running back Zach Charbonnet and his team-high 589 rushing yards and 11 touchdowns. Sophomore running back Hassan Haskins has rushed for 439 yards with three touchdowns and senior running back Tru Wilson has 216 rushing yards and three trips to the end zone this season.

Indiana Loses Close Game to Penn State

Indiana is coming off a 34-27 loss to #9 ranked Penn State that snapped the Hoosiers four-game winning streak. Their 7-3 record will likely qualify them for a bowl game, and a win over the Wolverines would probably seal the deal for Indiana. They haven't beaten Michigan in the past 23 seasons, and they will have to play the game of their lives to beat the Wolverines on Saturday.

Michigan allows 154 passing yards per game this season, and junior quarterback Peyton Ramsey will be tasked with throwing the ball against the Wolverines. Ramsey has thrown for 1673 yards with ten touchdowns along with four interceptions. Ramsey has rushed for an additional 153 yards and three touchdowns this season.

Junior wideout Whop Philyor has 863 receiving yards with three touchdowns and is questionable for this game as he is in concussion protocol. Junior wide receiver Ty Fryfogle has 502 receiving yards with three touchdowns, sophomore tight end Peyton Hendershot has 444 yards with four touchdowns and senior wideout Nick Westbrook has 387 receiving yards and three scores this season.

The Wolverines allow 106.8 rushing yards per game and sophomore running back Stevie Scott III has rushed for 791 yards with nine touchdowns this season with an additional 211 receiving yards and one touchdown. Freshman Sampson James might also see action, and he's rushed for 104 yards with two touchdowns this season.

The Bottom Line What to bet on this game.

Full-Game Side Bet
Rating:

I'm going to side with the Wolverines in this matchup. They are the better football team on both sides of the ball, and as long as they don't look past the Hoosiers, they will beat them decisively. Patterson has thrown the football very well lately, and he has so many weapons at his disposal that will cause Indiana all sorts of fits. Then Michigan has Charbonnet, who has been a one-person wrecking crew. Indiana has a decent offense, and Ramsey will do alright, but I am laying the wood and playing Michigan to cover the spread in this game.

Prediction: Michigan -8.5

Full-Game Total Pick
Rating:

I don't see any issues with saying the Wolverines will likely score between 35-42 points on Saturday as the Hoosiers defense isn't all that great, and the Wolverines offense has been solid over its last five games. I see Indiana scoring 17 points or maybe 24 because their offense isn't that bad and they are playing at home. This could end up a shootout and that bodes well for playing OVER in this matchup.

Prediction: Over 53 Points
