Florida State Seminoles vs. Michigan Wolverines Prediction 03/24/2018

The talk of the tournament has been Michigan's defense. Some analysts have been as bold as to predict Michigan marching all the way to the Championship Game. However, we would not be so quick to pull the trigger. The Seminoles' resume speaks for itself. In back-to-back games, Florida State has dispatched a number one seed and last year's runner-up in this very tournament. Moreover, Florida State did it with style. The problem is Michigan has looked so good dating back to the BIG 10 tournament, so their stock is through the ceiling with the betting public. The opening line for this market is quite enticing given the low-hanging fruit. However, had Michigan stumbled anywhere along their recent winning streak there would be an entirely different narrative for this match? Clear-cut overreaction, take the points.
