Villanova vs. MI: 2018 National Championship Prediction, Preview, Betting Odds, Start Time


After almost three weeks of madness in the NCAA tournament, the field of 68 has been cut down to two teams.

The numbers from the 2017 National Championship Game backed Deitsch up.

The Wildcats and their horde of long-range shooters are playing for their second title in three years, a chance to establish a mini dynasty. One team won a National Title two years ago while the other has been waiting nearly three decades. Almost half of Villanova's shot attempts this season (47.5 percent) have come from 3-point range, and the Wildcats make those long-range shots at a super-efficient 40.1 percent. Villanova has been favored by an average of 9.9 points in its five NCAA tournament games and has covered the spread by an average of 7.9 points, with the closest call coming in their tournament opener against 16th-seeded Radford (the Wildcats won by 26 as 22.5-point favorites).

Not sure I'll even bet this as I see Michigan as a small lean with the points, plus only a small lean on the over (maybe a small Michigan/Over parlay). But it wasn't for reasons you would think. You just have got to hope you can minimize his influence on the game. Strictly speaking, I'm a Michigan State fan (Tom Izzo is also a Yooper - we are a loyal bunch), but I'm willing to tune up the band and roar out The Victors as the Wolverines make their way to their second-ever national title. Eastern Time. Live televised coverage of the men's college basketball championship game is available on TBS via cable or satellite providers. That would be a best-case scenario against the Wildcats. They force teams to play down low and once their opponents get there, MI uses their size to dominate. The Michigan feed will air on TNT, while the Villanova feed will air on TruTV. Meanwhile, Michigan arrived to the championship game by knocking out tournament Cinderella Loyola-Chicago.

Led by Jalen Brunson and Mikal Bridges, both of whom made the 10-player Wooden Award All-American Team, Villanova has six players that score more than 10 points per game.

Simpson is looking forward to the challenge of stopping Brunson, per Chris Solari of the Detroit Free Press. "Who wouldn't?" Simpson said.

"Until we went up to beat Michigan State we weren't nationally ranked. It comes with it". They defeated the No. 11 Loyola-Chicago Ramblers on Saturday night to advance to the final four. MI has a great three-point defense.

"That's as good a team as we've played that I can remember", Kansas coach Bill Self said after the Wildcats crushed his Jayhawks with a barrage of 3-pointers in the national semifinals Saturday night. The Wolverines needed a second-half surge against Loyola to turn a 10 point deficit into a 12 point victory.

While many fans will be tuning in and hoping they can come away with the points they need to win their office bracket poll, one MI fan has much more on the line.
