Michigan opens as a 3-point favorite at Purdue in its Big Ten opener
However, the unranked Wolverines (2-2) have opened their first week of Big Ten Conference play as road favorites.
Michigan opened as a three-point favorite over Purdue on Sunday night, according to betting site BetOnline.com.
The Boilermakers (3-1) have not lost a home game this season, and grabbed their third win of the year Saturday by outlasting Marshall, 51-41.
Michigan earns the early line as the favorite despite the fact that senior quarterback Denard Robinson has thrown just one touchdown against seven interceptions in his last three games away from Michigan Stadium (at Notre Dame, vs. Alabama, vs. Virginia Tech).
The Wolverines have won three of their last four games in West Lafayette, Ind., with the only loss during that stretch coming by way of a 48-42 setback in 2008.
