    Villanova -6.5 -120 bought .5 5 units
    the only way i see michigan keeping it under 10 is if villanova plays bad, which we havnt seen in a while. everyone says michigan plays great perimeter defense but i dont think that their competition has really tested that. fla state and a&m werent very good offensively and loyola chicago had a good run but there arent any matchup problems for michigan there. Villanova has shooters all over the floor, the bigs for michigan are gonna have to guard the outside and the guards for michigan are gonna have to rebound. MIchigan has won 14 in a row, impressive but they havnt always looked it. Villanova has been consistent all tournament, rarely seen stretches where there was a chink in the armor. the wvu game showed what they can do against pressure and how quickly they can blow it open from a close game. Michigan is very talented, but also very young. youth tends to lead to more turnovers, more fouls, and more bad shots. michigan can catch fire of course, but villanova is also a very good defensive team. both teams can play at any speed, i just think villanova is better no matter the speed michigan wants to play at.
    i see villanova winning the turnover battle, having better shot selection, committing less fouls and shooting better from behind the arc and free throw line.Combine that with the fact that i think Wright is the best coach in the game and the veteran leadership favors villanova i dont know how a young team like michigan can overcome that.

    gl to whatever you play, hope everyone had a great season
