College Basketball Betting Trends
The Bulldogs are 4-0 ATS in their last four Friday games. Michigan is 1-4 ATS in its last five neutral site games.
The Wolverines are 4-1 ATS in their last five games overall. Michigan is 34-15-3 ATS in its last 52 neutral site games.
The Bulldogs had to expend some extra energy to get past Oregon yesterday, but I think they have another gear here. Gonzaga boasts a top five offense in the nation in terms of adjusted efficiency and while the Wolverines are very solid defensively, I don't know if they can get consistent stops while also keeping up on the offensive end. I see a potential Final Four team here in the Zags and I am betting on them to make a statement here.
