#4 Michigan Wolverines -2
#4 Syracuse Orange +2
The Wolverines and the Orange both feel like they are more or less touched teams right now. Syracuse has driven into the Final Four in what could be the last season for Head Coach Jim Boeheim before he hangs it up, and the team has truly been one of the most explosive defensively that we have seen in years at this level. Michigan has figured out how to knock down miraculous shot after miraculous shot, and it just doesn’t seem like there is a defense in the land that can get in front of this team. Here’s the only difference that we see, though. The Wolverines are going to want to push the tempo just a bit, something that the Orange just won’t let them do. The Marquette Golden Eagles tried their best to do it, and they were held to just 39 points in the process. Granted, we don’t really believe that Big Blue is going to be held in the 30s in this one, but we just don’t know if they are going to be able to win a defensive showdown with the ‘Cuse. Michigan doesn’t have a great history of playing in these defensive showdowns, and though it was able to get the job done against a somewhat similar Kansas Jayhawks team in the Sweet 16, it was able to push the game to the tempo that it wanted for much of the second half. As long as the ‘Cuse don’t get out of their game, they should win this one and march onto the NCAA Championship Game on Monday.
