Two teams from the Big Ten East link up on Saturday, when the Rutgers Scarlet Knights visit the Michigan Wolverines.
When they met last year, Michigan won 48-42 in overtime.
Michigan Started off around a 18.5 point favorite, but that number has gone up to 20.5 and I have seen some get to 21. The total has also been bumped up from 48 to 49.5.
Rutgers Scarlet Knights
The Scarlet Knights did exactly what they were supposed to do against Delaware, as they beat them 45-13 on Saturday. Clearly, they will be in for a much bigger challenge this week.
Rutgers has definitely started the year off better than what a lot of people thought. Not many had them starting the year 3-0. Granted, they have not played anybody all that great. We will see what they do against a tough, balanced Michigan team.
Noah Vedral looked good on Saturday. He went 21/25 for 323 yards and 2 passing touchdowns. It will be interesting to see how he does against that stout Wolverines defense.
In 2 of the 3 victories for this team, the offense scored a lot of points, but the defense has also been very good. The team has allowed a combined 34 points in 3 games. They will have their biggest test thus far when trying to stop Michigan.
Similar to the Scarlet Knights, there were not high expectations for the Wolverines in 2021. They have also surprised some folks in the beginning of the year.
Michigan improved to 3-0 in the year when they beat Northern Illinois by a score of 63-10.
Through 3 games, the Wolverines have played 2 cupcake games and 1 real game. Although not a great team, beating the Washington Huskies 31-10 was an impressive win. Although they are better than Rutgers, Saturday will be no easy matchup.
Cade McNamara went 8/11 for 191 yards and 1 touchdown pass on Saturday. He has gotten off to good start this year and will look to carry that over to Saturday.
The rushing attack for the Wolverines has been excellent this year. Blake Corum was the leading rusher on Saturday. He ran the ball 13 times for 125 yards and 3 touchdowns. Also, Donovan Edwards ran it 8 times for 86 yards and 2 touchdowns.

4* Free Week 4 NCAA Betting Pick: Over 49.5 points
I can see this game potentially starting off close, but I feel as time goes on, the Wolverines will take over. I have a very hard time seeing the Rutgers defense slow down the Michigan offense. I would be surprised if Michigan has trouble scoring. I feel that the Scarlet Knights will be able to move the ball and score, but not at will. I feel the Wolverines will slowly take charge as the game goes. I would have liked to have gotten the number at 48, but I like this total to over the posted total of 49.5 on Saturday.
