Who We Like: Michigan is the hot team coming into the tournament, winning nine straight while going 8-1 against the spread during this run. The Wolverines haven’t played in 10 days, so the real question is can they maintain their momentum with such a long break. While Montana comes in having won five straight, the Grizzlies are just 1-3 ATS in their last four. The difference in this game should be defense. Michigan’s defense has been the strength of the team and I think the Grizzlies will struggle with it a great deal. I fear a slow start for Michigan, but I will take my chances with them covering.
