ESPN Predicts How Many Games Michigan Will Win In 2017

Here's how many games Michigan will win this year.

Michigan enter the 2017 season as a contender in the Big Ten. The Wolverines face some stiff competition this season, starting with a non-conference battle against Florida, and continuing through the last week of the regular season against Ohio State.

But how many games will Michigan win this year?

ESPN picked the over/under on how many wins the Wolverines will have this season:

Michigan Wolverines: 9 wins

Our pick: Over. This might not be a popular pick because Michigan is losing almost its entire starting defense to the NFL. The Wolverines have recruited extremely well under coach Jim Harbaugh, though, so replacing that talent won’t be impossible. It wouldn’t be out of the question to see Michigan end up with nine wins, but there is no push option here so we’re going with the over.

An 10-win season is a real possibility for the Wolverines this year. Their stiffest tests come at home against Ohio State, and then on the road against Penn State.
