Michigan Wolverines 80-1 (BetOnline)
When it comes to roster talent, the Alabama Crimson Tide is undoubtedly at the top of the NCAA heap. Nick Saban’s crew has earned their preseason number one ranking and bookmakers are showing respect with current odds to win another national title set at about 2-1 in most shops. It’s hard to envision them not being in the “final four” college football playoff – hell, they’ve only missed it once.
That said, at 2-1, the Tide just doesn’t offer any value to put a futures bet on them. (There’s that “V” word again) Instead, we look for a (much) bigger payday by getting down on the Michigan Wolverines to win it all at a whopping 80-1 (currently available at BetOnline). This line will not last! First, other betting shops are offering the Wolverines at half this price. More importantly, though, the Wolverines schedule sets up for them to be in the mix to make the college football playoff when they face Ohio State to close the season. Michigan goes on the road to play a tough Iowa team but draws Penn State and Michigan State at home. Their non-conference opponents will be playing in plenty of homecoming games.
In last year’s win over Ohio State, Michigan dominated the lines of scrimmage en route to a 42-27 win. We feel that they can do it again, thanks in large part to an offensive line returning 4 starters and ranked number one in the country by Phil Steele.
If Michigan does find their way into the playoffs and you are holding an 80-1 ticket, you will be in a great position to hedge your bet – twice if need be – and ensure a tidy profit from your future ticket.
In the words of Emperor Palpatine.. “Use my knowledge. I beg you.” Go to BetOnline now and get yourself a piece of Michigan at 80-1.
