Michigan Wolverines Football
Head coach Jim Harbaugh’s run with the Wolverines has been disappointing so far, with the low point being a 2-4 record in 2020. Despite being winless against rival Ohio State and no Big 10 titles, Harbaugh signed an extension to stay in Ann Arbor through 2025, showing that the Michigan administration still believes in him to turn it around.
Oddsmakers, on the other hand, have set Michigan’s win total at a mediocre 7.5 for 2021. Take a look at all of the Wolverine’s odds above, as well as their full 2021 schedule, depth charts, against-the-spread (ATS) performance, key injuries and much more.
Michigan Wolverines Point Spreads
As much of a disappointment as they were to fans, the Wolverines let down their spread bettors even more in 2020, covering only once in six games. 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.
Michigan Wolverines Over/Unders
With a disappointing defense in 2020 that allowed over 34 points per game and a solid offense that ranked fifth in the Big 10 in scoring, the Wolverines were a great team to bet the over on last season. 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.
Michigan Wolverines Moneylines
If you expect the Wolverines to beat rival Michigan State in 2021 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.

Michigan Wolverines Props
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 Cade McNamara's passing touchdowns, WR Ronnie Bell's receptions or RB Hassan Haskins' rushing yards, among many others.
Michigan Wolverines Futures
The futures market is cautiously optimistic on the Wolverines, giving them the third-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 2021 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.
