Well if it comes down to FTs that does not bode well for michigan.
Michigan team FT% = 321st in D1 @ 66.2%
Loyola team FT% = 141st in D1 @ 72.2%
also michigan starting PG shoot 52%
Michigan is capable of playing a fast paced up and down game as well as a grind it out half court game. Coaches for both teams are excellent so not much there advantage wise. I expect a close game.
Larry Bird was 1979 and Indiana St beat DePaul to reach the title game where they LOST to B1G team Michigan St. Still waiting for correct answer which I do not have.....
Just take Loyola plus 220 and then roll the winnings into the final game. A hypothetical $100 would net $320 to bet on Loyola in the final. $320 at +300 (an estimate) would net you $960.
Future bets are for suckers....don't be one.
So I can get 12/1 on Carbon for Loyola winning championship wouldn't it be best to take that since I think they will beat Michigan instead of the +220 then I can hedge it if I want in Championship game. Imagine Nova or Ku won't be much more then the Michigan spread of -240. Anyone have a guess what KU or Nova ML spreads would be?
