The Michigan Wolverines and the Pitt Panthers meet in college basketball action from the Barclays Center on Wednesday.
The Michigan Wolverines will look to build on their 88-83 win over Eastern Michigan in their last game. Hunter Dickinson led the Wolverines with 31 points on 13 of 17 shooting with 7 rebounds while Terrance Williams II added 18 points with 3 threes and a team-high 11 rebounds for the double-double. Jaelin Llewellyn added 12 points with 3 assists to cap off the trio of double-digit scorers for Michigan in the win. Dug McDaniel led the Wolverines with 5 assists in the win while Jerr Howard added 4 steals as well in the victory.
The Pitt Panthers will look to rebound from a disappointing showing in their 81-56 loss to West Virginia last time out. Jamarius Burton led the way with 16 points on 5 of 8 shooting with 7 rebounds while Greg Elliott added 11 points with 3 threes as the only other double-digit scorer for Pitt in the losing effort. Nate Santos added 7 rebounds of his own and Federiko Federiko added 6 rebounds of his own in the loss.
Michigan is 1-7 ATS in their last 8 games following a win and 1-4 ATS in their last 5 Wednesday games while the over is 8-2 in their last 10 games following an ATS loss. Pitt is 0-4 ATS in their last 4 games following an ATS loss and 1-6 ATS in their last 7 games overall while the over is 6-2 in their last 8 neutral site games.
I get the case to be made for an underdog like Pitt IF they were at home, but they aren’t for this game and Pitt just has a massive size disadvantage with Hunter Dickinson on the other side for Michigan. I just think this ends up being all Michigan as the Wolverines dominate the inside so I’ll lay it and play it with Michigan here.
