UCLA vs. Michigan NCAA Tournament Prediction
Both teams are hot at the betting window, so I’m staying away from the side and playing the total instead. The under is 13-5 in the Wolverines’ last 18 games overall, is 12-5 in their last 17 games when favored and is 9-4-1 in their last 14 NCAA Tournament games. The under has also cashed in 12 of Michigan’s last 14 games coming off a win and is 10-3 in its last 13 games when playing a team like UCLA that has a winning percentage that is above .600.
Speaking of UCLA, the under is 6-2 in the Bruins’ last eight games versus an opponent like the Wolverines that has a winning percentage above .600. The under is also 5-2 in the Bruins’ last seven NCAA Tournament games.
