Michigan Vs. Alabama Odds: Crimson Tide Heavily Favored

After opening as an 11-point underdog, the No. 8-ranked Michigan Wolverines are now 14-point dogs against the No. 2-ranked Alabama Crimson Tide, the line tracker at OddShark.com showed on Wednesday. The Wolverines play the defending national champions on Saturday night (8 p.m. ET on ABC) at Cowboys Stadium in Arlington, Texas.

Michigan will enter the neutral-field game with a Heisman Trophy favorite, quarterback Denard Robinson, behind center, but it could be without its starting tailback, Fitzgerald Toussaint, who has been listed as a starter but has not been cleared yet to play by head coach Brady Hoke.

Meanwhile, Alabama enters the season with 11 returning starters from last year's national championship squad, and the Tide are one of the favorites to win the national championship again this season.
