The Plays

Washington Huskies at Michigan Wolverines (-7, 48.5)

Fallica: This line move is a big overreaction in my mind. Yes, Washington suffered a brutal loss to Montana last week, but it was self-inflicted damage which did the Huskies in (3 INT). Michigan put up good offensive numbers and ran the ball at will vs. a MAC defense, but Cade McNamara will likely have to do more through the air this week — and do it without the services of his best WR Ronnie Bell. This is a Michigan team which is 2-6 in its last eight games vs. Power 5 opposition and while I am not as high as others on Washington this season, I think the move from 1 or 1.5 on the lookahead line to seven is too much.

Pick: Washington +7
