Eastern Michigan vs. No. 3 Michigan

Eastern Michigan has lost two of its last three games to fall to 6-3 SU on the season. The latest setback was a 74-48 loss to Illinois-Chicago this past Saturday as a nine-point road underdog. The Eagles are now 3-3 ATS. They rank near the bottom of Division I in both scoring (57.2 points) and team shooting (38.7 percent).

Michigan is another team that should move up in the polls after running over West Virginia 81-66 on Saturday as a 10.5-point favorite. The Wolverines improved to 11-0 SU and 6-3 ATS. The total has gone OVER in six of the nine games with a posted line. With basketball pedigree such as Tim Hardaway Jr. and Glen Robinson III on the roster, Michigan is averaging 78.2 points a game while shooting an impressive 51.1 percent from the field.

Eastern Michigan at Michigan

Wolverines running over West Virginia 81-66 on Saturday as a 10.5-point favorite improved to 11-0 SU and 6-3 ATS. Michigan with four double digit scorers lead by Trey Burke (18.0), Tim Hardaway Jr. (15.7) averaging 78.2 points a game while shooting an impressive 51.1 % from the floor have an easy one when they host Eastern Michigan (6-3, 3-3 ATS). The Eagles thumped 74-48 by Illinois-Chicago last time out rank near the bottom in both scoring (57.2) and shooting (38.7%). The Eagles winless on the road this season and losing 9-of-10 (5-5 ATS) away from Convocation Center in Ypsilanti are on an 0-5 SU/ATS skid playing in Wolverine's back yard. If that were not enough, Eagles head to Crisler Arena in Ann Arbor ridding a 0-11 (3-7-1 ATS) slide away vs Big 10 opponents.
