Against The Spread Pick
The Wolverines head out on the road, following a big home win over rival Michigan State over the weekend. Isaiah Livers returned for that game, and it might have lit a fuse at Michigan to make the run they need heading into March. Northwestern is just trying to finish the season on a high note, but this game could get ugly quickly. In the last nine head-to-head meetings, the Wildcats have proven to be a bit of a troublemaker for the Wolverines. Northwestern has lost six of its last seven games at home. Michigan hasn’t had a good season on the road, but this is the type of game the Wolverines can boost their season with. Taking Michigan to cover 6.5 points is the right move.
Over Under Pick
In four of Michigan’s last six games under was the right play, on the flipside Northwestern has also favored the under in six of its last nine games. Michigan reached the 70-point mark for just the second time in their last six games in their win last Saturday against Michigan State. In the Wildcats last 10 games, they have only reached 70 points twice. At a total of 137.5 for this match-up taking the under is the smart play.
