Shark Bites

  • Michigan is 2-7 SU in its last nine games after winning as an underdog.
  • Oklahoma State is 0-7 SU and 1-6 ATS in its last seven games in March.

Michigan almost missed the conference tournament after its charter plane skidded off the runway on the way to Washington, but the team proceeded to win four games in four days – including a 71-56 victory against Wisconsin in Sunday’s final – and claim its first conference tournament championship since 1998.

Oklahoma State won 10 of its last 14 games to earn a spot in the big dance after missing out in 2016. The Cowboys have made the tournament four times in the last five years but have failed to win a game since advancing to the regional semifinal in 2005.

The Cowboys have been a phenomenal bet as an underdog lately. Oklahoma State is a sizzling 7-1 ATS in its past eight when tabbed as dogs.
