@SidekicksPicks March Madness Play of the Day - 3/24

Michigan (19-14) vs Villanova (28-7)

The Michigan Wolverines face off against the Villanova Wildcats for. 7:30 tip in the sweet 16. Michigan just beat a solid Tennessee team to get here, but the tough road is just getting started! Michigan is a decent shooting team from the floor, averaging 47.1% (38). They are also a good rebounding team on both ends of the floor! Michigan is 6-4 in their last 10 games, but do they have what it takes to take down one of the best teams from the Big East?

The Villanova Wildcats have won 7 straight and 9 of their last 10 games. Villanova is a great defensive team and ranks in the mid 30s - 98th in every defensive category. They are 36th in points allowed per game (63.6), 54th in defensive fg% (41), and 38th in rebounds. On the offensive side, they average 73.8 ppg and are the best free throw shooting team in the country. This will be key down the stretch!

Betting Trends

  • Michigan is 1-7 ats in their last 8 games following an ats win
  • Michigan is 1-5 ats in their last 6 games following a win
  • Villanova is 2-1 all time vs Michigan
  • Villanova is 2-1 ats vs Michigan
  • Villanova is 17-4 ats in their last 21 games as a favorite in the tournament

Final Thought

I’m honestly surprised Michigan made it this far. I felt the Colorado game was a coin flip and they would definitely lose against Tennessee. I think Michigan’s luck runs out vs Villanova. Villanova has experienced guard play and a proven coach on their side. I think they are more well rounded and will lock down Michigan.
