Score: 79 - 59
Point Spread: +3/-106 Michigan
The Wolverines will be riding high following their amazing comeback victory over Kansas in the Sweet 16. After blowing out both South Dakota State (71-56) and VCU (78-53) in the first two rounds, they erased a late 14-point deficit to beat the Jayhawks 87-85 (OT).
Florida has been very fortunate to be dealt the easiest schedule of all the teams left in the field. The Gators have drawn Northwestern State, Minnesota and Florida Gulf Coast to reach the Elite 8. Michigan is more battle-tested, and it will use its momentum from the Kansas victory to advance to the Final Four.
The Wolverines are 8-1 ATS in all tournament games this season. Florida is 1-7 ATS after covering 2 of their last 3 against the spread this season. The Gators are 3-8 ATS in their last 11 games vs. a team with a winning % above .600. Florida is 1-4 ATS in its last 5 games following a win. Bet Michigan Sunday.
