The 2017 Outback Bowl Betting Odds for Michigan vs. South Carolina had Michigan as a -7 to -7.5 favorite with a split across the board.  This line has also previously sat on -8.

This is typically around the 10th most watched of all the College Bowl games depending on which teams are playing. Both these teams have identical 8-4 records Straight Up though Michigan is only 5-6 Against The Spread while South Carolina is 6-4 ATS. 

The line on this game, as determined by the College Football Betting Power Ratings, should be -6.5 in favor of the Wolverines, thus giving South Carolina a slight edge here.

These teams did meet just four years ago with the Gamecocks winning by 5 points though South Carolina was a 5.5 favorite in that one.  A win Monday would have South Carolina with nine victories for the first time since 2013.

The Wolverines have fared well against SEC opponents, compiling a 25-8-1 record, including two straight victories by an average margin of 25 points.

The Outback Bowl is an annual college football bowl game played at Raymond James Stadium in Tampa, Florida, initially launched as the Cigar Bowl and typically taking place on New Year’s Day, which is the case this post season.

Conference tie-ins are the Big Ten and SEC with a $3.5 million payout as of 2015.
