Michigan vs Villanova March Madness Prediction & Best Bet

The Michigan vs Villanova projection on numberFire gives the Wildcats a 67.5% chance of winning, which makes Villanova the best bet in this game, with their -230 moneyline odds.

The Wolverines have pulled off a couple of significant upsets to make it to the Sweet 16, defeating No. 6 Colorado State and No. 3 Tennessee in the first two rounds. Meanwhile, Villanova has had an easier path, going up against No. 15 Delaware and No. 7 Ohio State.

Although the Wolverines have surprised a lot of people so far, the Wildcats are the more well-rounded team. Considering the fact that Villanova didn't even trail for a second in their matchup against Ohio State, look for them to keep the ball rolling.

Michigan's run has been a ton of fun this year, but the betting value lies with Villanova this time around.
