Michigan football vs. UNLV: Prediction, point spread, odds, best bet

The Michigan Wolverines play the UNLV Rebels on Saturday, and if you’re looking to do some last-minute betting research, you’re in luck! We’ll give you the latest point spread, money-line odds and over/under number, as well as the information you’ll need to make the smartest bet.

The game starts at 3:30 p.m. EDT and can be seen on CBS.

Michigan football enters the game ranked No. 2 and 1-0 after defeating East Carolina in Week 1. The Rebels defeated a Football Championship Subdivision team, Bryant, 44-14. It had a similar opening last year, winning against a lower-tier team, but won just four more games.

Jim Harbaugh will not be on the sidelines for this game, instead, it will be Jay Harbaugh working as the team’s acting head coach in the first half and Mike Hart in the second. Offensive coordinator Sherrone Moore returns from his one-game suspension, which could provide sparks on the offensive side of the ball.

  • Point spread: Michigan -37.5

  • Money line: Michigan -10,000 / East Carolina +2000

  • Over-under: 57.5

Advice and prediction

Michigan was close to covering the 36.5-point spread last week, but a touchdown was taken off the board and the Wolverines turned the ball over on downs. ECU scored a late field goal to cover on its end. Without the full coaching staff in play, it’s difficult to predict exactly what the maize and blue will do. As a result, we are predicting they will not cover this week. We are choosing the under, as well.

Prediction: Michigan 42, East Carolina 6
