Should you bet on Loyola or Michigan? Will the Ramblers or Wolverines cover the betting spread? Will the game go over or under the game total? Keep reading for answers to those questions and more.
This is Loyola’s time. The Ramblers are the better 3-point team, shooting 40.2 percent this season. While the team doesn’t have any big men, the Ramblers have avoided big-men teams so far in the Tournament. The Wolverines are no exception. Michigan isn’t overly big or athletic. That will allow Loyola the ability to switch screens and avoid bad one-on-one matchups.
Michigan comes to the Final Four with a 13-game winning streak, relying on defense while their offense sputters. The lone exception being a 99-point outburst in a regional semifinal win over Texas A & M. If Michigan plays not to lose against the team America is rooting for, the Wolverines will fall in the Final Four.
How Am I Betting The Loyola Vs Michigan Final Four?
I am betting the Under!
This will be a low possession game. The Final Four betting experts are projecting both teams to score in the 60’s. The Wolverines have the defensive edge but will need to rely on the 3-pointer to pull away. That’s why I am betting the under until I can get Loyola at +6. The Ramblers are a hard team to overpower.
