College football betting disgust has returned to Ann Arbor Michigan as the Wolverines defense is among the worst in college football gambling.
The Michigan Wolverines will host the Iowa Hawkeyes on Saturday with kickoff set for 3:30 PM Eastern and a telecast on ABC. Sports-Gambling opened with Iowa as a 4 point favorite.
The 15th ranked Iowa Hawkeyes are coming off a 24-3 home win over Penn State two weeks ago which improved their overall record of 4-1 straight up and 3-2 with the NCAA football betting lines.
Iowa remains a well balanced team as they are 33rd for total offense, 4th for total defense, and number one for points allowed. Senior quarterback Richard Stanzi is having his best season ever with a 68% completion rate, 10.1 yards per attempt, and a 10/2 touchdown/interception ratio.
Adam Robinson has 480 yards rushing with a 4.9 yards per carry average and 6 touchdowns.
The Michigan Wolverines have a record of 5-1 straight up and 3-3 with the NCAA football betting board. Michigan is coming off their first loss of the season last week as Michigan State bulldozed them 34-17.
The Michigan defense was mauled for 536 total yards and quarterback Denard Robinson was not in Heisman form as he threw 3 interceptions while gaining only 86 yards on the ground.
While the Michigan offense ranks 3rd in the country the defense is an abomination that ranks 112th as defensive coordinator Greg Robinson has one of the hottest seats in the country.
Iowa is the more solid team here as the Michigan defense is virtually helpless and a total embarrassment. The D-Rob factor is what can save the Wolverines but that option may not be as attractive as it once was as Michigan State schooled the Wolverines and the first year quarterback last week and Iowa has a defense that is even more capable.
Iowa has gotten the money in 13 out of their last 17 versus teams with winning records. Michigan has covered 4 out of their last 21 games in Big Ten action. The underdog has beaten the college football betting line in 8 out of the last 9 meetings in this series.
