A PharmD graduate of the University of Michigan, Ashkan Khabazian currently serves as the lead clinical pharmacist of Sharp Memorial Hospital’s emergency department in San Diego, California. Outside of his professional life, Ashkan Khabazian is a fan of University of Michigan athletics.

Though the Alabama Crimson Tide is the favorite pick of sports analysts to become college football’s national champion, it’s the Michigan Wolverines that have emerged as an odds-on favorite among bettors in Las Vegas. At many Vegas sports books, the Wolverines have had more bets placed on them to win the title than any other team. Odds makers have responded in kind, moving Michigan from a 15-1 favorite to a 7-1 favorite, putting them only behind Alabama.

Michigan has a favorable schedule this year, which is one reason why bettors and experts believe the team could have a strong showing and perhaps even win the title. Colorado is the only Power 5 Conference team on Michigan’s non-conference schedule this season. However, the Wolverines will face road tests at Michigan State and Ohio State in conference play.
