    Nova by 12-18.
    KU > Michigan, the KU offense is superior to Michigan and Nova smothered KU. Took them apart. Wire to wire, no doubt, up by 22 and coasted for the last 15 minutes. Michigan offense is so so and Nova D is top notch.
    Bigs for Nova are explosive, have jelled lately and will dominate in the paint and also hit 3's. Wagner is solid but in deep ca ca with Spellman and Paschall.
    Guards and wings for Nova are superior, too. Sure they will not hit as many 3's as last night but they still are the best 3 shooting team, ever, statistically. Bridges, an early first round pick (about 10th or so?) had an off game and they won by 16.
    BE has been 9-3 ATS in the tourney, Big 10 4-7. Big 10 had a down year and Michigan had a relatively easy route to the Championship Game.
    Nova - 6.5 BIG.

    Yes I had Michigan yesterday but I cannot see them staying with Nova and if they get behind they are not built to come back against a top notch team, they finally pulled away from Loyola with better athletes and a great game by Wagner, but not this time...

    bet the future before FF started for Nova to win it all @ -103...bc i knew it would be too steep.

    i would personally wait and play live and find an opportunity to bet Nova -3 or -4...

    I've had Nova several times this tournament, obviously a very impressive team. When any team shoots like that, its tough to beat them.

    Michigan is much better equipped to handle the perimeter shooting, they have better length and athleticism on the perimeter than Kansas. Teams that have held their previous opponents to sub 60 points have fared very well in the tournament, Michigan has done it to their last 2 opponents.

    The line is 6.5 and has touched 7 in some spots. Thats a lot of points.

    I'll take the points and the Under 145.5

    I think the more important match up is the Michigan O going against the Nova D which is an outstanding unit.
    Michigan could get smothered, be held to 62 or less and will not keep Nova under 74.
    We shall see...

    Look at how many times Michigan has made halftime adjustments this tourney. It's literally been every game. Won every second half. Beilein is a top 3 strategies coach in the country. They are always so prepared

    Ok, I'm sold.

    Lots of really smart basketball people say Nova and it won't be close. I'll just stick with my Under 145.5 (grabbed it yesterday). Got an email from a really sharp guy saying Nova by DD. Jay Williams this am says the same thing. My eyes tell me the same thing. I've made solid money playing on teams with the 60 point thing I mentioned, its the only reason I mentioned Michigan. GL to all of you on the Nova train.

    You make wagers based on Jay Williams' opinion being a factor?

    Villanova has more experience and more impressive. Michigan very talented but fsu, Tex a&m and Loyola Chicago is a dream walk to a championship game. Every facet of the game is rather have the nova player, coach, experience whatever.ichihan hasn’t also played a great ball handler ina while. Villanova should roll as long as they don’t turn it over much. Everything points that nova should pull away by either free throws or experience in the last 5 min.

    Straight up, though.
    I’m sure some TBS shill will be forced to predict a Michigan SU win to make viewers more interested. But the vast majority of experts sure as hell aren’t going to look foolish by predicting a Michigan SU win.

    Thats not what I said. I said a lot of smart basketball people said it won't be close. Jay Williams being one of them. I also mentioned a friend of mine that is very sharp said Nova by DD.

    But go ahead and make a false narrative that Jay Williams decides who I bet. You're really fucking brilliant.

    LMAO!!! I guess everyone on ESPN was right this time! It's funny how people cap games based on "What are the analysts on ESPN picking?"

    Nova - 6.5 BIG.

    My beef with this board is those who make picks with no backup. Then they say they are 48-46 to date. They just keep score of themselves but contribute nothing.

    Sure, some do better than others. Keeps you out of trouble, I guess, to follow some of the well known ones they are always in the slightly > .500 ballpark.

    I wrote this up on different threads with info that is well known but also some different points of view. I left off some things (like Michigan did not really face good 3 pts shooting teams last few games) etc etc.

    Good luck to all, see you again, football season!
