Â Final Four Picks: Syracuse Orange vs. Michigan Wolverines
The last weekend of college basketball will see four great teams ascend to Atlanta in hopes of cutting down the nets and being known as the best team in college basketball. The most anticipated game of the weekend features Syracuse Orange vs. Michigan Wolverines. These two No. 4 seeds have caught fire in the tournament and are riding a high heading into the Final Four.
BetOnline is the best sports book to bet on the Final Four as they post the lines first and will have plenty of prop bets for the games this weekend. They opened the betting line for this game with the Wolverines listed as (-2.5) point favorites.
This game will come down to the fast-paced Wolverine offense against the shutdown defense of the Orange.
Trey Burke had led the Wolverines this far with clutch shots in big games and that has carried over to the other team members as they clicked on all cylinders in the destruction of the Florida Gators. They will not face the toughest challenge of the tournament as they take on the Orange zone defense.
The Orange defense is great at disguising passing lanes and causing turnovers that transition into easy buckets. That defense will be forced to give it their all if they hope to slow down Michigan. The best matchup to watch will be at the point as Michael Carter-Williams will go up against Tyler Burke.
Burke has a no quit attitude and is the signature shot maker for this team. Carter-Williams is a lanky athletic passer that has a knack of getting everyone involved. This game will come down to the wire and be one of the most entertaining games to watch, but in the end the Wolverines are playing better basketball and will defeat the Orange to advance to the Final Four.
