They have played a tough schedule so far this season and they already have defeats at the hand of Stanford and Kansas. Guard Monte Gibson has been the best player for Tarleton State averaging 14.4 points while shooting 50 percent from the field and 33.3 percent from behind the three point line.
On the other side of this matchup is the Michigan Wolverines who sit with a 3-2 record overall and the two losses came against Seton Hall and Arizona. In the last game against Arizona the offense was an issue scoring only 62 points and that led to the 18 point defeat.

The under is 9-1 in Tarleton State’s last 10 road games. The under is 1-3-3 in Tarleton State’s last 16 games overall.The under is 5-1 in Michigan’s last six home games.
The trends point towards the under, and that is going to be the case again in this game. I don’t trust Tarleton State’s offense, but they are going to slow down the pace, With the slower pace, points are going to be hard to come by for both teams, and the under is going to cash.
