Mercedes-Benz Stadium – Atlanta, GA
Free NCAAF Pick: Over
With a total of 50 in the first Super 6 bowl battle, this is easy pickings, right? Michigan (17.6 PPG) and Florida (20.4 PPG) were both in the Top 21 in fewest points allowed and in the Top 30 in total defense. (Michigan – 1st and Florida – 26th) The Wolverines do not figure to be quite as strong with couple starters not playing, but, that is also true of Jim Harbaugh’s offense which has the same number missing.
After being like buffalo wings with blue cheese and celery (hot and cold), Florida’s offense clicked, albeit, versus lesser competition, nevertheless, the Gators averaged 46.3 PPG in their last three contests. Michigan’s defensive front struggled down the stretch, permitting 210.6 YPG rushing, which is a concern with Florida running a balanced offense.
Those making college football picks are just below 60 percent favoring the Under. We are going against the norm, not 100% convinced we will see the same Wolverines defense we saw the first 11 games and we know Michigan is 12-2 OVER vs. teams averaging 31 or more PPG. Add in when the total falls this much in this range, the OVER is 22-10, that’s where we are headed.
