BETTING STRATEGIES

Michigan is rolling along right now. The Wolverines are coming off a 99-72 win over Texas A&M on Thursday night to reach the Elite Eight. Michigan has now won 12 straight games while covering the spread in five of their last six games. The Wolverines are 23-12-1 against the spread on the season. U-M is averaging 73.7 points per game on offense while allowing just 63.3 per game on defense.

Florida State is coming off a 75-60 win over Gonzaga on Thursday night. The Seminoles have won their last two in the tournament as an underdog and have won and covered in four of their last five overall. FSU is now 18-13-1 against the spread on the season. The Seminoles are putting up 80.9 points per game on offense while allowing 73.3 per game on defense.

Florida State has managed to surprise many with its wins over Gonzaga and Xavier, but Michigan is a team that is really locked in on defense. What makes Michigan even scarier is that it was able to put up 99 points against Texas A&M on Thursday. The Wolverines’ defense will remain strong tonight and the offense seems to have hit a stride. FSU will definitely give U-M plenty of scoring chances with its questionable defense.
