Sportsbooks Say Montana Upsetting Michigan is a Good Bet
UP WITH MONTANA BOYS! The Griz are going to "the dance." Montana will be represented in the first round of the NCAA tournament on Thursday. In what looks like a David and Goliath match up.
The #14 seeded Griz will face off against the #3 seeded Wolverines on Thursday. Online sportsbooks are buzzing about the possibility of the annual first round upsets. Montana is marked to be one of those "BIG UPSETS."
According to TOP BET
What’s there to say about Montana? Well, the Grizzlies have a decent defense that gives up 68.8 points per game and ranks 65th in KenPom’s adjusted defensive efficiency with 99.3 points allowed per 100 possessions. They are a pesky squad that steals the ball 7.7 times per outing and forces opponents to commit 15 turnovers per contest. Michigan is going to try to control the game’s tempo like it always does, so Montana will have to focus on rebounding the ball in order to avoid the Wolverines from spoiling any momentum they Grizzlies will have at any point of the game. Montana gets 37.4 rebounds per game. Junior Michael Oguine has been hot of late, scoring an average of 21.5 points over his last four games. Michigan will have mark on his back, so guys like Admaad Rorie (17.2 PPG) and Jamar Akoh (13.1 PPG) should step up.
Oddshark ran data from multiple sportsbook websites, and the results are saying that Montana will not only WIN on Thursday, but the Griz will also cover the 11.5 point spread and go OVER.
Regardless of what the sportsbooks say. We already know who we are putting our money on.
