Michigan football vs. TCU in College Football Playoff: U-M almost a double-digit favorite




 

On Sunday afternoon, we learned that Michigan football will take on TCU in one of the College Football Playoff semifinals. The Wolverines and Horned Frogs will square off in the Fiesta Bowl at 4 p.m. Dec. 31, with the winner playing the Georgia-Ohio State winner in the national championship game on Jan. 9.

So who will get to Los Angeles for that title game? As the oddsmakers have set so far, the early favorite is Michigan. The Wolverines are a 9½-favorite against TCU according to DraftKings, BetMGM and FanDuel.

TCU was one of three undefeated teams entering Saturday, though it fell in the Big 12 championship game in overtime to Kansas State. Still, the Horned Frogs remained third in the College Football Playoff rankings, setting up the matchup with U-M.
