Michigan An 8 Point Favorite Tonight Against Iowa
Iowa will face Michigan tonight in a Big Ten tournament quarterfinal matchup. The Hawks advanced from the second round with an 83-62 win last night over Illinois. Nicholas Baer led the Iowa scoring with 5 threes and 17 points.
The folks in Vegas have Michigan posted as an 8-point favorite in tonight's game. I like Iowa to keep this game relatively close. I don't think they will win, but they should stay within the spread. **Iowa is 9-0 ATS in their last 9 neutral site games.
Marion bookie Dalton Michaels told me ALL the money is on the under 142. He noted that Iowa is 6-2 on the under in their last 8 games and the public is making a play on that side of the action.
Michaels told me, "If they under comes in, I'll be looking for pop cans on the side of the road tomorrow morning!"
I would be scared to bet the under in this game for a couple of reasons. We know if this Iowa team is playing well, they can score plenty of points. And let's not forget Michigan has won this tournament the last two years and can also put up a big numbers.
I like the OVER and skipping the play on either side. Overtime could be a possibility, and that would mean even more points. Just hope for a ton of scoring on both sides and take the OVER 142.
You can catch all of the action on the Big Ten Network tonight starting at 8:30 p.m.
