20* Michigan/VA Tech Sugar Bowl ANNIHILATOR on Michigan -3
Michigan vs. Virginia Tech,
01/03/2012 20:30 EDT,
Score: 23 - 20
Point Spread: -3/-103 Michigan
The Michigan Wolverines are the play in the Sugar Bowl as a mere 2.5-point favorite. Even at -3, this team is a lock. Michigan deserves to be here after a two-loss season in the Big Ten, but VA Tech has no business being here after losing to Clemson twice in the ACC.
The ACC is clearly one of the worst conferences in the country. It's Big Ten vs. ACC and I'm siding with the Big Ten in this one. Michigan has a dynamic quarterback in Denard Robsinson, and they have one of the must underrated head coaches in the land in Brady Hoke.
The Wolverines are 5-0 ATS in their last 5 games after accumulating less than 170 yards passing in their previous game. Michigan is 9-2 ATS in their last 11 non-conference games. The Hokies are 0-4 ATS in their last 4 non-conference games. Take Michigan Tuesday.
