Michigan football opens Big Ten play Saturday against Rutgers and here are the odds for the Week 4 matchup as well as a prediction. 

Through three weeks, it’s hard to imagine Michigan football playing any better than it has already. The Wolverines are winning games by an average of 36 points,

Michigan football has a scoring offense ranked 4th in the FBS and a scoring defense ranked 10th. But that doesn’t mean anything when Big Ten play opens Saturday against Rutgers.

Many fans might not realize it, but Rutgers also heads into the Big Ten opener in the Big House (Saturday, 3:30 PM EST) undefeated after wins over Temple, Syracuse, and Delaware.

So while Michigan might be back to being Michigan, Rutgers has regained respectability under Greg Schiano and this isn’t going to be a walk in the park.

That being said, if Michigan can continue to play the way it has to start the season, it’s going to continue to be a good bet as U-M has covered the spread — easily — in three straight games.

Michigan Football vs Rutgers Prediction Week 4

It’s safe to say that both the Wolverines and Scarlet Knights are better than people expected, although it wasn’t hard to see Rutgers opening 3-0.

Rutgers is one of the most experienced teams in the country in terms of returning starters. That being said, the Scarlet Knights haven’t beaten anyone of consequence and have a lot to prove.

Bo Melton is always a fun player to watch and he’s someone the Wolverines will have to find a way to contain on Saturday. Rutgers is also stout defensively ranking 9th in scoring defense nationally (11.3 points allowed).

All that said, when Cade McNamara came on in relief of Joe Milton last year, the Wolverines rallied from a 21-3 deficit to win the game.

McNamara will start the game this time. He will also have the nation’s top rushing attack (1st in yards per game) behind him and a potential Heisman candidate in Blake Corum.
