The Michigan vs. Louisville betting line was coming in at Cardinals -3. LIVE IN-PLAY WAGERING is available right up to the final second so place your bets throughout the game here.
The Wolverines come into this game just shy of the .500 mark Against The Spread but have covered in 60 percent of their last ten games.
They failed to record an ATS win in the 1st round of play against Oklahoma State, thanks to that Cowboys backdoor cover.
The Wolverines hit 11 of 15 second-half 3-pointers, scored 1.58 points per possession over the final 20 minutes and D.J. Wilson ensured the victory by making both his free throws with only 3.7 seconds left and four points ahead.
That’s when Oklahoma State’s Jawun Evans took off down the court and managed to nail a 28-footer to make, resulting in the 92-91 victory with Michigan as a -2.5 favorite.
“That three was a day-changer for us,” Jay Rood, VP of race and sports at MGM Resorts International, told Yahoo Sports. “We would have been pushing the rock uphill all day if he does not make that 3.”
“Ticket count was 3-1 in favor of Michigan,” Rood said. “The money was 4-1 on Michigan. BIG game for us.”

Louisville (18-1 odds of winning the championship) enters this game 17-13-1 Against The Spread but have only covered in 20 percent of their last ten games overall. This includes four straight games without a cover heading into the 2nd round play Sunday.
The Cardinals easily beat Jacksonville State, but by 15 points, not the -18.5 posted line.
The good news for Louisville is that they are 7-1-1 ATS in their last 9 vs. Big Ten.
