Michigan vs. Minnesota College Basketball Prediction

The favorite is a perfect 4-0 against the spread in the last four meetings between these two teams, while the Wolverines have cashed in five straight games overall. Michigan is also 6-2 against the number in its last eight road games, is 5-0 against the spread in its last five games as a road favorite and has covered in four straight when facing an opponent with a winning record.

Meanwhile, the Golden Gophers are 5-11-1 against the spread in their last 17 games played on Saturday and just 1-5 at the betting window in its last six home games when facing an opponent with a road winning percentage of greater than .600. Minnesota has been a tough team to beat when it’s at home but I’m not going to step in front of the buzz saw that is Michigan right now.
