Michigan vs. Ohio State Betting in “The Game” Saturday Odds

Michigan Wolverines vs. Ohio State Buckeyes NCAA Football Betting and Picks

Will he or won’t he?  That is the College football betting question regarding Jim Harbaugh’s future.  Michigan’s coach is said to be interested in an NFL Return.  On the whole, Harbaugh is in the midst of his worst season as Wolverines coach.  Michigan has declined so rapidly that many fans are eager for their former hero to leave.  Consider that Harbaugh arrived as the savior of the program in 2015.  His first two years fed into that.  But since the epic 2016 loss at Ohio State things have never been the same.  Ohio State hosts Michigan on Saturday.
