Michigan Wolverines 2023 Season Preview
It is College Football Championship or bust for the Michigan Wolverines in 2023 after getting routed last season in the CFP Semifinal by TCU. Jim Harbaugh enters his 9th season as the head coach of the Wolverines, and looks to take the team to the pinnacle of college football once more.
The Wolverines are expected to be an offensive juggernaut once again this season behind QB J.J. McCarthy and returning star RBs Blake Corum and Donovan Edwards. Harbaugh and the Wolverines are Big Ten purists who love to utilize a physical run game to open the passing attack. This will almost definitely be the case again in 2023 as the team has several returning offensive lineman, alongside many experienced transfers to throw in the mix. Michigan's offense ranked 6th in the country last year putting up an eye-popping 40.4 points per game. Don't be surprised if Michigan is able to put up similar numbers (or better) in 2023.
Defensively, you couldn't have asked for much more out of the Wolverines in 2022. They held teams to 16.1 PPG, ranking 6th in the nation. Michigan has six starters returning from that defensive unit, and has also bolstered the side with transfers and highly touted incoming freshman. The defensive front for the Wolverines is expected to be particularly disruptive led by Tackles Mason Graham and Kris Jenkins. The secondary, while impressive, has a few more question marks. Amorion Walker is new to the CB position, and could potentially struggle early on. It's unlikely that he will be exposed at all until Big Ten play starts, but he's someone to keep an eye on.
Depending on which sportsbook you look at, Michigan is either first or second in terms of being the odds-on favorite to win the Big Ten. Currently, their consensus preseason line is at +175 odds to hoist the trophy.
Betting on the Michigan Wolverines
Michigan Point Spread
Michigan spread bettors likely saw a decent return on their investment from the team in 2022. The Wolverines went 8-5-1 against the spread for the year. A spread bet is a wager on how much a team will win or lose by, so a team can cover the spread without winning the game, or vice versa, depending on the odds. Here’s an example of a Wolverines spread:
- Michigan +7.5 (-110)
- Ohio State -7.5 (-110)
If Ohio State wins the game, 24-17, Michigan is said to have covered its spread, since the margin of defeat (seven) is less than the spread (7.5). Favored teams (minus odds) need to win by more than the spread to cover. Underdogs like Michigan here (plus odds) only need to lose by less than the spread or win the game outright to cover.
Despite a dominant offense and defense in 2022, the Wolverines were not a great Over bet. The team only hit on 38.5% of the overs in 2022 (5-8-1). Over/unders, or totals, are bets on how many points will be scored in a game.
For example, if you bet over 51 for the Wolverines' game against Wisconsin, the Badgers' 49-11 drubbing was just fine for you. If the Badgers had won just 39-11, though, the under would take it. If the game had finished at exactly 51 points, both over and under bets would “push” and get refunded to bettors.
If you expect the Wolverines to beat rival Michigan State in 2023 but aren’t confident in them to cover the spread, you could bet on the moneyline.
Moneyline wagers are common bets completely based on which team will win the game; the margin of victory or defeat is irrelevant.
Michigan might be a -170 favorite against the Spartans this year, meaning you would need to bet $17 to get a $10 profit. If the Wolverines were +170 underdogs, then a $10 bet would return $17 in profit. These bets are easiest to understand in $10 or $100 units.

Want to bet for (or against) specific Wolverine players? Player props are just that, allowing you to bet over or under on a player’s stat line for the game.
For example, you could bet on QB J.J. McCarthy's passing touchdowns, or RB Blake Corum's rushing yards, among many others.
The futures market is very optimistic on the Wolverines, giving them the second best chance to win the Big Ten this year. Futures are bets on the entire season and include any wager that doesn’t settle until the season is played out.
Examples of Wolverines futures in 2023 are their odds to win the Big Ten or the national title, over/under on wins during the season, and various players' statistics or odds to win certain end-of-season awards.
