Win Division (+335), Win Conference (+485)
SSA Model Pick: None
When Michigan hired Jim Harbaugh there was an expectation of instant success. Entering his fourth season, Harbaugh has yet to make it to the Big 10 title game. This could be the year for Harbaugh, but Ohio State, Penn State, and Michigan State are all looking good as well.
Win Total Analysis
9 wins (+115/-135)
SSA Model Pick: Under (Medium Confidence)
The SSA staff certainly doesn’t agree with this pick, but the model doesn’t see a 10+ win season for Michigan. Games at Notre Dame, vs. Wisconsin, at Michigan State, and at Ohio State make for a difficult schedule for the Wolverines.
