This Big Ten conference game will begin from Michigan at 12PM Eastern Time and ESPN will provide a national television broadcast.
With our free pick we will play on the Illinois Fighting Illini +3 points against the Michigan Wolverines.
Illinois head coach Ron Zook has his Fighting Illini team playing good football. They are just 1 win away from becoming bowl eligible.
The team is coming off consecutive victories blowing out both Indiana and Purdue and allowing no more than 13 points in any one of those games.
They own a 33-13 dominating road victory at Penn St four weeks ago in Happy Valley.
In contrast the Michigan Wolverine defense gave up 41 points at Penn St in a 10 point loss.
Bottom line is that the Michigan Wolverines defense is very poor allowing its opponents an embarrassing 440 yards per game. Defensive coordinator Greg Robinson has failed this team much like he did while the head coach at Syracuse.
Michigan has suffered through 3 straight losses thanks to their defense.
Take the better defensive club getting points.
Bet Illinois Fighting Illini +3 points.
