Is Michigan In A For A Letdown Against South Carolina?

Michigan was an afterthought in the Big 10 entering the season, but the Wolverines have opened the year winning their first four games and broke into the Top 25. However, Michigan could be in an interesting spot playing South Carolina on Wednesday, as the Wolverines have lost their past six games coming off a SU victory as an underdog. Despite closing as a narrow 1-point dog against SMU in its last outing, Michigan won 76-54.

Shark Bites
  • The total has gone UNDER in 18 of South Carolina's last 23 games as underdog.
  • South Carolina is 6-1 ATS in its last 7 games against the Big Ten.
  • The total has gone OVER in 7 of Michigan's last 8 games on the road against teams with winning records.

Michigan has relied heavily on the senior guard tandem of Zak Irvin and Derrick Walton Jr., who have averaged a combined 28.5 points per game while shooting 42.6 percent from beyond the arc. The biggest issue facing the Wolverines is their rebounding, which ranks 284th in the nation.

South Carolina plays its fifth consecutive home game to open the season and will not play a true road game until December 17. Senior Sindarius Thornwell has been the star of this Gamecocks squad, averaging 20.8 points and 6.5 rebounds while shooting 46.7 percent from 3-point territory.
