The Bearcats outscored the Blackbirds 48-37 in the second half on its way to the win. Chancellor Barnard paced Binghamton with 18 points on 7-of-11 shooting and 4-of-5 at the free throw line.

College Basketball Betting Trends

Binghamton

The Bearcats are 4-1 ATS in their last five games following an ATS win. Binghamton is 1-4-1 ATS in its last six Sunday games.

Michigan

The Wolverines are 10-1 ATS in their last 11 Sunday games. Michigan is 1-4 ATS in its last five non-conference games.

Prediction:

Sure, the Bearcats are one of the worst teams in the country but this spread still seems a little too bloated. Michigan might be motivated to win by a huge margin in order to have a better shot at moving to No. 1 in the rankings, but a win over Binghamton won't move the needle at all no matter what happens. I think a Wolverines win by 30-35 points is more likely than by 40 or more. Go with the underdogs here and take the points.
