CSU tends to give the ball away and rack up personal fouls. They are also a bit undersized with no 7 footers and have a tough time rebounding.
CSU has played in the weaker conference, so Vegas feels like Michigan's overall team strength will be able to overcome their weaknesses in this matchup.
Michigan are -2.5pt favorites
However, we think David Roddy's strength and athleticism will be able to shut down Michigan's primary offensive weapon, Hunter Dickenson. Michigan are weak to interior pressure and CSU specializes in making accurate FGs. Tough match up for the Wolverines.
