  • Opening moneyline: Michigan -5500/Iowa +1700
  • Opening total: Over/Under 35 points scored
  • Time: 8 p.m. ET Saturday (FOX)

UPDATE 6 P.M. ET SATURDAY: With kickoff two hours out, Michigan is -21.5 (-115) at BetMGM Nevada. That's the low point for this spread, arriving there early this afternoon. The Wolverines opened -23.5, and there were three adjustments Wednesday: to -22.5 (-115), -22.5 flat and -22.5 (-105).

Then came today's move to Michigan -21.5 (-115).

"Tickets are really close, a few more on Iowa. Money is 1.5/1 in favor of Iowa," BetMGM Nevada's Scott Shelton said of action in the sportsbook operator's Las Vegas market. "On the moneyline, almost 100% of money is on Iowa."

So bettors are taking fliers on the Hawkeyes, who are currently +1100 to pull the outright upset.

And even with the Under a robust 10-2 for the Hawkeyes this season, bettors are banking on at least a little scoring tonight. The total opened at 34.5 and spent pretty much all week at either 35.5 flat or 35.5 (Over -115). It's currently 35.5 flat.

"They're betting the Over. Money is 3.5/1 and tickets 3/1," Shelton said.

UPDATE 1 P.M. ET FRIDAY: BetMGM opened Michigan -23.5 and on Wednesday fell back to -22.5 (-115)/-22.5 flat/-22.5 (-105). The line remains -22.5 (-105) this afternoon, with 54% of spread bets on Iowa/56% of spread money on Michigan.

BetMGM's total opened at 34.5 and spent all week pinned to 35.5, either flat or -115. It's 35.5 flat now, with 66% of bets/72% of cash on the Over.

UPDATE 2 P.M. ET MONDAY: Michigan (12-0 SU/6-5-1 ATS) fended off Ohio State 30-24 giving 3 points at home in the regular-season finale. The win put Michigan in the Big Ten title game and kept Jim Harbaugh's squad on track for a third straight CFP appearance.

Iowa (10-2 SU/6-5-1 ATS) was once again not flashy, but did just enough to get a W in Week 12. The Hawkeyes were 2.5-point pups at Nebraska and scratched out a 13-10 victory. That fell below the closing total of 25.5, making the Under 10-2 for Iowa this season.

TwinSpires moved Michigan down a point in the early going, to -22.5 in its college football odds Week 14 market. The Wolverines are drawing 65% of tickets/53% of money for Saturday's game in Indianapolis.

"Sharp play on Iowa +23.5," Lucas said.

The total nudged from 35 to 35.5, with 52% of tickets/60% of money on the Over.
