Michigan's national title odds soar
Everybody, even Vegas, is all in on Michigan.
The latest national title odds believe the Victors are not only worthy of being in the conversation, but they’re one of favorites.
According to Las Vegas SuperBook, Michigan’s national title odds are down to 10-1. Only Ohio State (5-2), Baylor (5-1) and LSU (8-1) rank ahead of the Wolverines. That puts Michigan ahead of TCU (15-1), Alabama (12-1) and Michigan State (20-1).
Considering Michigan was at 100-1 odds to start the season, that’s saying something.
The Wolverines are riding three straight shutouts for the first time since 1980. They became the first FBS team in 20 years to accomplish that feat. Even more impressive is the fact that the Wolverines haven’t surrendered a point on their last 41 defensive possessions.
Michigan is all the way up to No. 12 in the latest Associated Press poll, which is the team’s highest ranking in two years. The Wolverines were the highest risers of any team within the top 25.
The Wolverines will face their first top-10 opponent of the Jim Harbaugh era when Michigan State rolls into Ann Arbor next week. College GameDay will be on hand to take in the action.
Vegas likes the Victors there, too. Already a seven-point favorite, it appears everyone is on the Michigan bandwagon.
