Updated Michigan-Florida odds; Wolverines hand out 2 scholarships – MLive.com
Bettors in Las Vegas still like Michigan, even without a starting quarterback named and questions at key spots this season.
The Wolverines remain favorites in their season opener Saturday (3:30 p.m., FOX) against Florida, with most sports books giving them a 3 1/2 or 4-point edge, according to the latest odds on VegasInsider.com.
No. 11 Michigan opened as a 3-point favorite against the Gators in May, but the line has slowly risen amid news Florida will be without its top wide receiver, Antonio Callaway.
Caesars, William Hill, Wynn and Station Casinos, among others, are all taking bets on Michigan -4, while the Westgate and MGM chain of casinos are taking action on Michigan -3 1/2.
Questions remain at quarterback with Florida too, with Gators coach Jim McElwain on record as saying all three candidates could see playing time against Michigan.
Meanwhile, Bovada, the largest online sports book, has Michigan -4 with an over/under for total points scored set at 45.
Scholarships handed out

Jordan Glasgow and Joe Hewlett were awarded full scholarships, covering the cost of tuition, room and board and full expenses, players announced on Twitter.
