The Orange Bowl will finally be played Friday night and here’s all you need to know Michigan football fans in terms of injuries, odds, and how to watch. 

The long wait is over Michigan football fans. At least it nearly is. We’ve got a full day to wait but there’s the Cotton Bowl and other appetizers to pass the time.

For Jim Harbaugh and this Michigan football program, the wait to reach this point has been long, and let’s be fair, it has been difficult at times.

But those who stay will be champions. This team is already a championship team and winning its first Big Ten title since 2004 is no small feat.

The Wolverines aren’t done though. They have their eyes on the prize and there’s no reason Michigan can’t run the table and win it all.

First, that will mean getting through a very good Georgia team, and here’s all you need to know for the 2021 Orange Bowl.

Michigan football vs Georgia Injury report

From a Michigan perspective, the only injury of note is Daxton Hill and after a scare that he wasn’t going to be able to play, he has traveled and will most likely play in the Orange Bowl according to Angelique Chengelis.

We don’t know about Georgia quarterback JT Daniels. Like Daxton Hill, he has been dealing with COVID-19 protocols and on Thursday, Kirky Smart didn’t say for sure if he would play, although he hinted that if available, he will be part of the game plan.

Michigan football vs Georgia Odds and Betting Pick

The Wolverines are a 7.5-point underdog according to WynnBET against Georgia going into the 2021 Orange Bowl and the rumors about Hill, one of Michigan’s best defenders, possibly being out, probably didn’t help move the line any in Michigan’s direction. The over/under is 45 and the money line for Michigan is +250 while it’s -325 for Georgia.

Most expect the Bulldogs to rebound and win this game. They do have elite talent on both sides of the ball and for all the criticism that Stetson Bennett gets, he averages over 10 yards per attempt and has thrown 24 touchdowns.

Yes, the Bulldogs played a much easier schedule than Michigan and the bowl records of the Big Ten and SEC showed that the Southeastern Conference wasn’t that deep in 2021.

But none of that matters for the Orange Bowl. However, this feels like a favorable matchup for Michigan and if it can find some success on the ground and make Georgia one-dimensional, unleashing its pass rush, Michigan will pull the upset. 27-23.
