Tuesday, Dec. 6th, Ann Arbor, Mich., 9pmET
Line: Michigan -10
Shaka Smart and the Texas Longhorns travel north to take on the #20th ranked Michigan Wolverines. Texas fell into a min 3 game slump losing three straight to close out the month of November. They bounced back to beat the Alabama Crimson Tide on December 2nd and now travel to take on a top ranked team after four days rest.
Michigan has beat some decent teams so far this season in Marquette, SMU and South Carolina but they did lose a close one to Virginia Tech, 73-70. The Wolverines bounced back to Kennesaw State on December 3rd.
Last year Texas lost a close game to Michigan in Austin, and went on to a 20-win season and a first round NCAA tournament game. Michigan had 23 wins a year ago, and made it to the second round of the tournament.
Six of the top seven players in Texas’ rotation are freshmen or sophomores while the Wolverines are experienced with juniors and seniors in their starting five. Texas is 5-2 ATS in their last 7 games as a road underdog and 9-4 ATS in their last 13 following a win and Michigan is just 1-5 ATS in their last 6 games as a favorite.
Recommending laying -10 points in this matchup and take Michigan at home. In the end, their experience and defense will win this game and while Texas may keep this close for most of the game, expect the Wolverines to pull ahead at the end and their team 80% free throw average will come into play with some late fouls.
