Check out our best plays in this week’s Fab Five:

The #4 Michigan Wolverines will look to continue their dominance when they host the Indiana Hoosiers in a Big Ten battle late Saturday afternoon from the Big House in Ann Arbor, MI. The Hoosiers notched a 34-32 home win over Indiana on Saturday, and the Wolverines came away with an easy 42-7 road win over Rutgers last week. Michigan tallied a 27-20 OT road win against Indiana last season.

Hoosiers Snap Slide with Home Win Over Maryland

The Indiana Hoosiers snapped a rough four-game skid with a 34-32 home win over Maryland on Saturday to improve to 2-5 in conference play. Peyton Ramsey was sharp, collecting 243 passing yards with two TD’s. The sophomore QB is having trouble with turnovers, posting a 17:11 TD to INT ratio to go along with 2335 passing yards on the season. Hoosiers #1 RB Stevie Scott is locked in, rushing for at least 95 yards in three straight games, and he has racked up 894 rushing yards on the year. While Indiana doesn’t have a huge threat at WR, they feature five receivers with at least 300 receiving yards. Donavan Hale leads the way with 425 receiving yards. The Hoosiers offense is having trouble generating any significant offense in conference play, although they have scored over 30 points in two straight games.

The Indiana defense also has not fared well in Big Ten play, allowing at least 33 points in four straight games. They allowed 353 rushing yards to Maryland, and their rush defense ranks 84th in the FBS. They will be challenged against a potent Michigan rushing offense. Indiana will need to win one of their two remaining games to achieve bowl eligibility status. They are currently averaging 27.6 points, ranking them 78th overall. The Hoosiers are conceding an average of 30 points, pegging them 84th overall. Indiana stands at 2-2 on the road this season.

Wolverines Register Ninth Consecutive Victory

The #4 Michigan Wolverines head into their final home game of the season riding a spectacular nine-game winning streak which included an easy 42-7 road win over Rutgers last week. Shea Patterson was tremendous, collecting 260 passing yards with three TD’s. The junior QB has tossed seven TD’s with zero INT’s in his last three games, and he has racked up 1927 passing yards with a stellar 17:3 TD to INT ratio on the season. Wolverines #1 RB Karan Higdon only recorded 42 rushing yards last week, although he has tallied at least 100 rushing yards seven times this season. The senior RB has accumulated 1005 rushing yards with nine TD’s on the season. Michigan’s leading receiver Donovan Peoples-Jones has brought in 447 receiving yards on the season.

The Wolverines utilize a rush-heavy offense, and as a result, their passing offense ranks 87th in the country. They have scored at least 38 points in five of their seven conference games, and they are currently averaging 37.2 points, ranking them 20th in the FBS.

The Michigan defense continues to silence opponents. They have limited their opponents to exactly seven points in three straight games, and they are effective against both the pass and run. The Michigan defense is holding opponents to 12.9 points, good for third in the country. The Wolverines are ranked 4th in the College Football Playoff Rankings.

The Bottom Line What to bet on this game.

Full-Game Side Bet
Rating:

I am taking Michigan in this contest. The Wolverines continue to dominate their competition. They feature an incredible defense that is limiting opponents to only 220 total yards per game, ranking them #1 in the FBS. Indiana is below average offensively. They rely heavily on their passing game, and the Wolverines pass defense is unbeatable, standing first in the country with an average of only 116 passing yards allowed per game.

Furthermore, the Indiana defense is struggling right now, surrendering an average of 38.8 points in their last five games, and they will have trouble stopping the Michigan offense. The Hoosiers rush defense stands down at 84th in the country, and the Wolverines stellar rushing offense is averaging 215 rushing yards per game. Michigan has won 42-7 in two straight games, and they should take this one by big points.

Prediction: Michigan Wolverines

Full-Game Total Pick
Rating:

I am taking the under in this one. The Wolverines stifling defense should allow the under to convert. Michigan has limited their opposition to only seven points in three consecutive games, and I expect them to silence Indiana. Also, the under is 6-2 in the Hoosiers’ last eight games against a team with a winning home record.

The Hoosiers passing game will struggle against this Wolverines talented secondary, and the Indiana rushing offense is well below average as they are only averaging 155 rushing yards per game. 

Prediction: Under

Full-Game Prop Bet
Rating:

Indiana is going to have trouble scoring points against this top-ranked defense. Michigan has held their opponents to only seven points in three straight games, and the Hoosiers offense doesn’t particularly stand out. Hoosiers’ QB Peyton Ramsey has tossed six INT’s in his last four games, and he is up against the best pass defense in the country.

Prediction: Indiana Team Total: Under

Half-Time Side Pick
Rating:

Michigan’s first half defense has been incredible. They are holding their opponents to an average of 2.3 points in their last three games and only 6.6 points on the season in the opening half. In addition, the Wolverines are averaging a solid 18.4 points in the first half. Michigan should jump out to a large early lead.

Prediction: Michigan Wolverines

Half-Time Total Bet
Rating:

I am staying with the under on the halftime total. While I expect offense from the Wolverines, the same can’t be said for Indiana. The Wolverines have only allowed a combined seven points in the first half in their last two games.

Prediction: Under

Half-Time Prop Prediction
Rating:

I am taking the under on the 1st quarter total. Michigan is only averaging 4.7 points in the first quarter over their last three games. Also, the Wolverines have held their opponents to an average of only 1.2 points on their home field in the first quarter this season.

Prediction: First Quarter Total: Under
