Prediction

Michigan's strong start to the season and their dominant performances against UNLV and ECU suggest they have the capability to cover the -40.5 points spread.

With McCarthy leading the offense and a defense that has been stingy, Bowling Green may struggle to keep up. The Wolverines' balanced gameplay is expected to overwhelm the Falcons.

While large point spreads can be challenging, Michigan's recent performances make them the favorites to cover. Betting on Michigan to cover the -40.5 points spread appears to be a prudent choice for those looking to wager on this game.
