Michigan -7.5 (-108 via FanDuel)
With no disrespect to the TCU Horned Frogs, who had a great season, the Michigan Wolverines have been incredible in 2022. They've won 11 of their 13 games by more than one score, including over Penn State and Ohio State. This line opened at 9 and it has dropped to 7.5, but sportsbooks just won't put this below the key number and are clearly trying to bait bettors into taking TCU. - Wood
