There is a site advantage for Michigan in this contest. Indianapolis is in close proximity so they will have more fans in attendance. The Big Ten conference tournament championship is played in this NFL football stadium so Michigan has already aquatinted with the depth and rims. Tennessee will take longer to get used to playing in this NFL stadium. For that reason the Volunteers could struggle offensively early in this game. I expect Michigan to jump out early in this game because they know the envirement and pushing a fast tempo will create more possession which plays in the favorite of the Big ten team. Michigan will be the fresher team because they had an easy time of hit by defeating Wofford by 17 points and in the Round of 32 the team defeated Texas 79-65 and covering as a -4 ½ point wagering favorite. Michigan is a well-coached efficient team. They shoot very well as the convert on 47.5% from the field and 39.8% from three. They rank 28th in all of college basketball in shooting percentage and are eighth best from three in the nation. The Wolverines are an outstanding free throw shooting team ranking tenth as the club makes 76.2%. On defense the team defends the perimeter very well by allowing 31.2% from beyond the arc ranking 35th best in all of college hoops. Michigan has won nine of their past ten games with their only loss coming in the Big Ten championship game where they were forced to play three games in three days. Take the efficient Michigan club.
