Why Bet FSU To Beat Michigan In The Elite Eight
Can FSU beat Michigan? Should you bet on the Seminoles to cover the 4-point spread?
Florida State beat 8th-seeded Missouri, top-seeded Xavier, and fourth-seeded Gonzaga to reach the Elite Eight for the first time since 1993 with a chance at its first Final Four berth since 1972.
FSU has used a deep bench, energetic defense and all-around scoring to win three straight March Madness games. Can a perfectly timed peak by the Seminoles propel FSU into the Final Four?
If it weren’t for UMBC and Loyola, the Seminoles would be the Cinderella team everyone would be rooting for. The team lost it’s top three scorers from last season, hadn’t advanced past the R32 since 2011–12 and finished .500 in conference play this season. FSU wasn’t even a lock to get a March Madness berth after losing three of their final four games.
Why Bet Michigan To Beat FSU In The Elite Eight
Are the Michigan Wolverines a smart bet to reach the Final Four again? After stumbling out of the blocks and squeaking into the Sweet Sixteen, Michigan throttled seventh-seeded Texas A&M by a score of 99-72.
The Wolverines are playing some of the best ball ever. Over the past two seasons, Michigan is 13-1 during postseason play, and its win Thursday was its 31st of the season, tying a single-season school record. Add all of that up and Michigan is the smart bet to beat FSU and book a trip to the Final Four.
FSU vs Michigan Elite Eight ATS Pick
By all accounts FSU shouldn’t be here and Michigan has been underperforming. The weight of a trip to the Final Four will be too much for one team.
