Michigan football and Rutgers will open Big Ten play against each other Saturday, here’s all the info you need along with our betting preview and how to stream. 

It might not be October yet, but the fall feeling is definitely in the air as Michigan football welcomes Rutgers to the Big House on Saturday afternoon.

It’s the Big Ten opener for both teams, which are each 3-0. Michigan and Rutgers have both dominated non-conference opponents. Both programs are ranked in the top 10 in scoring defense and each has a quarterback playing efficiently.

Will that continue? That’s a big question for both teams. The bigger question for Michigan football is can it keep imposing its will on opposing defenses? Rutgers gave up around 150 yards last week on the ground to Delaware, so U-M should be to keep pounding the rock.

Here’s our final look ahead at injuries, how to watch/stream, and a final prediction.

Michigan football vs Rutgers Injury report

Rutgers is going to be down a few players on Saturday. Max Melton was suspended for an incident with a paintball gun and another cornerback is expected to be sidelined.

As we broke down earlier this week, Michigan football is fairly healthy at this point. Of course, Jim Harbaugh doesn’t always keep folks updated on the injury report but Zak Zinter is probably the most notable guy and he’s just playing a club on his hand.

Michigan football vs Rutgers Odds and Betting Pick Week 4

According to WynnBET’s odds for Week 4, Michigan football is a 19-point favorite against the Scarlet Knights, and the over/under is set at 51.5 points.

Michigan has covered the spread with ease in each of the first three games this season, but this is a tough call. Rutgers is much improved and the Scarlet Knights won’t make this easy.

The Wolverines should be able to get things going on the ground, and Cade McNamara took advantage of this Rutgers defense a year ago and he can do the same Saturday, even without Ronnie Bell. Watch out for Daylen Baldwin too.

With rain looking like a possibility, and two strong defensive teams, I expect a fairly low-scoring game. The Wolverines haven’t given up more than two scores in a game yet or been held under 30 and those trends continue in a 31-10 win.
