Michigan vs Tennessee Odds: Round of 32
Despite Michigan's 18-14 record on the season, the Wolverines have actually played one of the hardest schedules in college basketball this season. The offense has played very well this season, earning 31.1% offensive rebounds while only turning the ball over 17.3% of the time. From the floor, Michigan is hitting 33.8% from deep and 53.3% from inside the arc. On top of that, from the foul line, the Wolverines are above average, hitting 75% of shots at the charity stripe. It'll be hard to score on Tennessee, however, with the Volunteers holding teams to a 46.2% effective field goal percentage this season. Tennessee is also earning 23% of turnovers and holding teams to 27.3% offensive rebounds. Michigan is going to want to look and score inside more times than not and Tennessee is holding teams to 45.7% from inside the arc.

On the other hand, the Volunteers have shot 36.5% from deep but just 48.3% from inside the arc. Tennessee will shoot plenty more three-point shots and should have success from distance. However, while Tennessee dominates the offensive glass, Michigan is holding teams to 23.8% offensive rebounds. Therefore, if Michigan defends the perimeter a little bit better, Tennessee could be held to just one and done. Still, Michigan only earns 15% turnovers on the year defensively. Therefore, Tennessee will still get attempts on most possessions in this game.
With that said, I'm going to take Tennessee. The Volunteers look like the best team in college basketball right now and are easily the hottest. The Vols have dominated defensively and have been efficient on the offensive end.
