Checking in on betting odds for Michigan basketball

It’s no secret that the 2022-23 Michigan Wolverines’ version of Juwan Howard hasn’t been consistent, nor do they possess many impressive wins. After a close loss at home to Purdue’s No. 1 Boilermakers and a tough road loss this weekend against Penn State, time is running out for Michigan to secure just one Quad 1 victory this year, something that the NCAA Tournament Committee is reviewing perhaps more than anything else.

With Michigan desperate for a huge win, now seems like a good time to check with the odds takers to get an idea of ​​how likely the Wolverines are to find success before the regular season ends.

DraftKings Sportsbook has updated odds tied to Michigan. While the bookie literally JUST took away the Big Ten Championship odds over the last day, all I can say is that Purdue were the big favorites (-1,800) while Wolverines (+15,000 ) were far behind.

If that doesn’t happen, the Wolverines will need to win the Big Ten Tournament to qualify for the NCAA Tournament at this point. It’s possible, it’s already been done, but unlikely.

Interestingly enough, the odds of Michigan making it to the Final Four are still +4,000. And if you really want to go out on a limb, you can – one way or another – still bet the Wolverines will win. the national championship (+ 20,000).

Finally, Hunter Dickinson remains on the list of players you can bet on to win the Wooden Award, as his odds are +10,000. Purdue’s Zach Edey is the favorite to win it at -1,000.

I don’t like to be so pessimistic about a Michigan team, but it all really seems like a tall order with zero Quad 1 wins and close loss after close loss on CV.

If you had to choose one of these odds to place a bet, which would you choose? Let me know in the comments because I’m really interested in hearing your responses for this one.
