Matt MacKay writes: "The Wolverines have won by 17 points or more in nine of its games this season, including the biggest one of all against Ohio State's potent offense.

Fansided: Go with the under in Michigan vs. Purdue game

Reed Wallach writes: "Michigan is top five in terms of EPA/Pass and will look to keep this game on the ground and bleed the clock when they have the ball. The Wolverines are 123rd in terms of plays per minute and should move the ball, but not with explosive plays. I think the Ohio State game is taking people off the scent that Michigan has been an under team all season and I'll back the under down to the key number of 51."
