Spread: Alabama (-14) over Michigan
The Crimson Tide are simply the superior team. Although this line moved from -12.5 up to two touchdowns this week, it’s still the right play.
Nick Saban’s fearsome defense will do its job and overwhelm the Michigan offense, keeping Michigan limited in its gains. But the real clincher is the offensive line.
‘Bama’s O-line is simply unstoppable. It returns four starters, with three in the running for an All-American nod. These young men are simply bigger and stronger than the inexperienced and undersized Wolverines defensive front, and they will have a field day mauling the Wolverines defense around.
Expect the Tide to roll through Michigan with run after run, putting up plenty of touchdowns and covering the spread.
Over/Under: Over 45.5
The over is the bet to make on the point total. Alabama’s defense is great, but it lost a number of high-quality starters to the NFL, and the unit isn't sure exactly what it has yet in 2012.
Michigan’s offense is bound to put up at least a few scores, and Denard Robinson is a good enough QB to make something happen by himself once or twice.
As previously mentioned, ‘Bama should have no problem scoring on the ground and will use a more experienced A.J. McCarron to pick up easy yards through the air once the Wolverines stack the box.
Predicted Final Score: Alabama 32, Michigan 17
