NCAA Tournament Betting -- Michigan vs. Texas: Wolverines Must Be Ready For a Brawl


Michigan is listed as a five-point favorite in the NCAA Tournament betting odds for this game, which is a big one on the schedule for the Final Score Network. .

Michigan has yet to be tested, but as all sportsbook bettors know, this team made it all the way to the national championship game last season before losing to Louisville. Therefore, there are a lot of players on this roster who helped this team get to the Final cap for. Foremost among them is Nik Stauskas, the Big Ten player the year, who leads a brigade of three-point shooters with 45% accuracy. However, what might be more interesting are the players who are NOT with the Wolverines this season, because Trey Burke was a very sure-handed point guard, and Mitch McGarry was emerging as a force at the center position. But Burke is in the NBA, leaving Michigan with a freshman point guard, and McGarry is sitting out with an injury.

With all the experience some of Michigan's players have at the highest level, there are still some perceived advantages for Texas here, and one of them is that the Longhorns can apply some muscle inside. Indeed, it is going to be difficult to stop Jonathan Holmes and Cameron Ridley, two very bulky players who can plant themselves underneath.

But it's not like Michigan does not have some toughness on the front line. Jon Horford will slug it out with those guys, although it is not going to be easy for Michigan to get out on the perimeter and fire triples. Remember that teams coached by Rick Barnes usually defend well and rebound well. Will they cause a problem for the team that won the Big 10 regular-season championship?
