Despite all the turmoil of another interesting run through March Madness the final is pretty chalky. We have a #1 seed vs a #3 and a great chance at a pretty good game.
I say great chance because Villanova just seems to have a gear tat other team’s dont this season. If they are on top of their game it could be a repeat of their rout against Kansas.
The Wolverines were considered an afterthought most of the season with Purdue and Michigan State dominating in the Big Ten. But since their run in the conference tournament few teams, if any, have been better.
One interesting note is how the B10 Tourney was early this year and how it was having such a negative effect for the conference’s teams. Obviously not for Big Blue. It will be interesting to see if they tinker again.
Michigan had a poor first half against Tournament darling Loyola-Chicago. However, coach John Beilein must have had the right words at halftime because they dominated in the second half to advance.
In the game Mo Wagner was a difference maker leading all scorers with 24 points. With his size and skill he could give the Wildcats some problems but he too often disappears for stretches.
It is no surprise that Villanova is in the title game. Except for a few weeks mid season where Virginia looked great they have been the most obvious top team in country.
During the tournament they have been running roughshod over opponents, winning and covering with ease. Funnily they beat Kansas by more than they beat Radford in the first round.
The biggest advantage the Wildcats have in every game is point guard Jalen Brunson. It is amazing how he can be so organized and composed and let the game come to him while scoring 20ppg. He is never in a rush.
Surrounding him are some next level talents like Mikal Bridges and some great college players like Phil Booth. The Wildcats have everything with sufficient size and more than enough outside shooting.
CBB Betting Trends:
- Wolverines are 6-1-1 ATS in their last 8 games following a straight up win.
- Wolverines are 14-3-2 ATS in their last 19 games vs. a team with a winning % above .600.
- Wolverines are 4-1-2 ATS in their last 7 NCAA Tournament games.
- Wildcats are 5-0 ATS in their last 5 NCAA Tournament games.
- Wildcats are 4-0 ATS in their last 4 games following a ATS win.
- Wildcats are 10-1 ATS in their last 11 vs. Big Ten.
Of course the line would favour Villanova in a significant way. If these teams both play their best they will win.
Coach Beilein has been phenomenal in the post season over his career both winning and covering.
