Michigan vs. Northwestern,

Score: 67 - 55
Point Spread: -1½/-110 Northwestern
The Northwestern Wildcats are a bubble team right now in terms of the NCAA Tournament. I have them beating the Michigan Wolverines tonight to help their cause. The Wolverines are primed for a letdown Tuesday after their huge home win over Ohio State this past Saturday.
At 16-10, the Wildcats will be the more motivated team tonight as they look to bolster their resume. Northwestern certainly helped their cause with a 64-53 home victory over Minnesota on Saturday. The Wildcats are now 11-3 at home this season, outscoring opponents by 9.5 points/game.
While Michigan is 15-0 at home, the Wolverines are just 5-7 on the road. They are actually getting outscored away from home and there's no question this is a vulnerable team away from Ann Arbor. That 5-7 mark includes neutral court games as the Wolverines are only 2-6 in true road contests.
The home team has won four straight in this series. Northwestern has won their last two home meetings with Michigan by 14 and 15 points, respectively. The Wildcats are 5-1 ATS in their last 6 games overall. Northwestern is 5-1 ATS in their last 6 games vs. a team with a winning S.U. record. The Wildcats are 4-1 ATS in their last 5 meetings. Roll with Northwestern Tuesday.
