    MICHIGAN ALL DAY. + THE POINTS. I am seeing -7 to -6.5. Is this a joke.

    The Michigan defense right now is lights out. No way Nova has the room to shoot that they did against Kansas.

    Michigan is big and can shoot the lights out with anybody.

    Villanova is completely drunk on them selves right now and 90% of america is drunk right with them. You still have to finish.

    This goes down to the wire.

    I dont understand your logics for Nova? They have won by DD in every game so far this tournament. Michigan got lucky to even get past UH in the 2nd round and have only dominated Aggies. Mich is the hottest team, yes, but Nova has been consistent. Should be a good game IMO. GL

    Michigan is “big”? Compared to what? A mid major school?

    Their starting lineup goes;

    6’
    6’4
    6’6
    6’7
    6’11

    with 6’8 Robinson off the bench.

    Nova goes;

    6’3
    6’3
    6’7
    6’9
    6’9.5

    while I agree that the line is inflated because of Nova’ destruction of KU, Michigan is not a big team, by any metric.

    We could go back and forth all day. What it really comes down to is that the line is ridiculously inflated.

    agree, i thought it would be Nove -9 after that dismantling of Kansas...
    i think they're looking for Nova money as crazy as that sounds... but so hard to hit submit on the Mich play...Nova so good and consistent
    Just Win....

    Is it?
    Nova was - 5 against a # 1 seed, KU. Michigan is a # 3 seed and played a lesser schedule. 6 or 7 points is about right.
    Nova slaughtered KU (yes Michigan is a better defensive team than KU, but KU is a superior offensive team than Michigan).
    Nova covered with room to spare against a much tougher slate than Michigan has faced in the tourney: Bama-WV-TT-KU are much higher rated than Hou-A&M-Fla St-Loyola). Michigan struggled in several of these games to even win SU, covered a few ATS.

    You are spot on. Everyone goes by yesterdays game. And this is why pigs get slaughtered and Vegas will make a killing tonight.

    Read it more carefully, I meant every tournament game.
    Every game they covered with room to spare.
    Not just “yesterday”.

    Can't wait to see all of ESPN and every other pre game analyst on NOVA tonight. That will seal it.

    Irrelevant.
    They won’t be picking against the spread.
    So of course most all will pick Nova.

    Hate it when a minute to go and favorite is at the spread and it comes down to dog hitting 3’s versus favorite hitting FTs.
