Michigan Wolverines vs Alabama Crimson Tide 01-01-2020 Picks Predictions and Previews

Michigan Wolverines vs Alabama Crimson Tide 01/01/2020 – The Michigan Wolverines face the Alabama Crimson Tide on New Year’s Day at the Citrus Bowl. Football parlay cards tip Alabama to come out on top despite missing the College Football playoffs. The Wolverines missed out on the playoffs as well, bowing to Ohio State in their last regular-season game. Winning the Citrus Bowl would be a consolation of sorts for both teams who are looking to cap their years with a bang.

Michigan Wolverines

With nothing but a defining win on the table, a problem that head coach Jim Harbaugh faces is who will play. There are players focusing on the NFL Draft and most may not risk playing for a consolation prize trophy. Regardless, the Wolverines may continue to lean on Shea Patterson. He has thrown 22 touchdowns and six interceptions in the regular season. Defensively, Michigan Wolverines should give Alabama some problems. They boast of the country’s best rushing defense, giving up 3.03 yards per carry.

Players to watch:

S. Patterson QB (197 CMP 344 ATT 2828 YDS 57.3 CMP% 8.2 AVG 76 LNG 22 TD 6 INT 22 SACK -185 SYL 143.9 RTG), Z. Charbonnet RB (136 ATT 642 YDS 4.7 AVG 41 LNG 11 TD), H. Haskins RB (103 ATT 561 YDS 5.4 AVG 49 LNG 4 TD), R. Bell WR (43 REC 694 YDS 16.1 AVG 71 LNG 1 TD), N. Collins WR (33 REC 681 YDS 20.6 AVG 76 LNG 7 TD).

Alabama Crimson Tide

In what is another disappointing season for Alabama, a final win could be a fitting consolation prize. They will have to wrap up their stint without quarterback Tua Tagovailoa who got injured midway in the season. Mac Jones will be tasked to take his place. The Crimson Tide defense also needs to step up against Michigan. Alabama gave up 46 points in two of their last four games, something that they cannot afford against the Wolverines.

Players to watch:

T. Tagovailoa QB (180 CMP 252 ATT 2840 YDS 71.4 CMP% 11.3 AVG 85 LNG 33 TD 3 INT 10 SACK -63 SYL 206.9 RTG), N. Harris RB (185 ATT 1088 YDS 5.9 AVG 31 LNG 11 TD), B. Robinson Jr. RB (93 ATT 425 YDS 4.6 AVG 37 LNG 5 TD), D. Smith WR (65 REC 1200 YDS 18.5 AVG 85 LNG 13 TD), J. Jeudy WR (71 REC 959 YDS 13.5 AVG 44 LNG 9 TD).
