The Wolverines are getting huge support from their backers tonight as they look to knock of No. 1 Louisville, who online sportsbooks list at a 4-point favorite.
When Louisville faced Wichita State Saturday, most oddsmakers saw fit to book double-digit lines and the action still landed on the Cards at a 61-percent rate. Things have changed dramatically following Michigan’s 61-56 win over Syracuse and according to one sports betting site, the action on the Wolverines to win straight-up is as much as 68-percent!
Louisville’s win streak hit 15-straight with the 72-68 win over Wichita State and the Cards are 10-2 ATS their past 12 games overall. Nine of the 12 wins came against foes that had a winning record and we still expect the Cards to dictate the pace of play in this contest early.
Michigan does not make many mistakes in the offensive zone and can shoot 48-percent from the floor but the consistency from beyond the arc is a concern. The Cards are 8-2 ATS in their past 10 tournament games and they’ve waited 27 years to get back in this position since winning the college title in `86. Michigan has a 1-4 record in this game and No. 1 seeds show a 7-2 ATS mark the last nine opportunities, so we’ll lay the points on Louisville (-4) and hope for a good game.
