Michigan vs. East Carolina: Game Preview

The Wolverines will look to start their season off on the right note. Unfortunately for Michigan, they will have to do so without head coach Jim Harbaugh, who is serving a self-imposed three-game suspension for violating NCAA recruiting rules. Against East Carolina, they likely will not need Harbaugh as their squad is simply far more talented, starting with star running back Blake Corum.

For the Pirates, a big win in the Birmingham Bowl last season is hopefully a source of inspiration. Working against them, is the loss of their top quarterback and running back. With that said, they do have a young QB who could prove to be interesting going forward in Mason Garcia. Will that be enough to upset the No. 2 Wolverines? Maybe not, but who doesn’t love an underdog story.

Michigan vs. East Carolina: prediction

Michigan’s offense is expected to get off to a quick start and could see some scoring opportunities on both sides of the ball. While the young Pirates will make some mistakes along the way, they have an opportunity to find a grove and do some offensive work themselves.

Betting pick: Take the over at 52.0 (-110)
