Bet on the Big Ten Tournament

Minnesota had a nice win over Michigan State yesterday, but Michigan is playing at a higher level right now. The Wolverines are playing with a lot of confidence and genuinely look like one of the best in the Big Ten right now. The Wolverines seem comfortable and loose right now and that has led to their best stretch of the season. I like Michigan to stay hot today.
