Rotation # 771
Michigan +3.5 over Northwestern (win)
Northwestern focuses on defensive play. On offense, they are a slow-tempo team that tries to limit turnovers. The Wildcats have to play perfectly to win games. The Wildcats are not a big team, and their lack of size hurts when playing more physical teams. The Wolverines don’t have the most talented team, but they don’t turn over the basketball, making it hard for Northwestern as they prey on teams that beat themselves. Tonight’s game should be a low-scoring game that gives Michigan good value as the underdog. Look for Hunter Dickinson to have a huge game tonight. Michigan already won the previous match this year and should do so again by throwing their weight around. Take Michigan.
