Why #15 Montana Grizzlies are a good bet +16?

The Big Sky Regular Season Champions, Montana’s been on a roll since Feb. 25 when they lost 72-74 to rival Northern Colorado. The Grizzlies dominated in the Big Sky Tournament.

What’s interesting about Montana is how they can play pretty much any style required. They beat Sacramento State 86-68, but when they had to play in a half court versus Eastern Washington, they also excelled. The Grizzlies beat Eastern Washington 68-66 to win the Big Sky Tournament. That versatility should serve the Grizzlies well against Michigan.

Montana vs Michigan Final March Madness Betting Analysis

Montana’s a good basketball team, but they have no shot of keeping it close versus a well-coached, defensive-minded squad like the Michigan Wolverines. Michigan’s issues versus Michigan State have only to do with the fact that Cassius Winston plays for the Spartans.

Winston’s one of the top players in the nation. He can break down any defense. The Grizzlies don’t have a player like Winston. Facing Montana, Michigan should most definitely get their offense going. On defense, Montana’s going to find it difficult to score over 50 points in this. Michigan wins in a blowout.

2019 March Madness Pick: Michigan -16
