This Saturday, there is an NCAAB matchup between two top-ten teams as the Oregon Ducks will travel to the Crisler Center to take on the Michigan Wolverines. This will take place at approximately 12:00 PM.

Oregon's most underrated player is senior forward Shakur Juiston who has looked good so far this season. He is averaging 8.8 points per game along with a team-high 6.5 rebounds in just 27.3 minutes per game. However, he is also averaging 2.4 turnovers per game so he will need to make better decisions with the basketball moving forward.

Best Bets for this Game

Full-Game Side Bet

Insiders Status:


Michigan has been amazing at home and Oregon has yet to play a true road game up to this point in the season so I expect the Wolverines to get the victory and the cover in this game. The Crisler Center is a very difficult place to play on any given day and I expect the arena to be rocking with an opponent ranked in the top-ten coming to visit. Michigan will use its size and physicality to win the rebounding edge as it wins this game. Give me the home team.

Prediction: Michigan

Full-Game Total Pick

Insiders Status:


Both of these teams have potent offenses that are averaging at least 78.5 points per game this season so I think that this total is too low. Plus, both teams have a ton of playmakers who are able to break defenses down and find open shooters on the perimeter so I think that both defenses will struggle getting many stops in this game. I can see Saturday's game finishing with at least 150 points so I think that this total is too low. Give me the over.

Prediction: Over

Half-Time Side Pick

Insiders Status:


I expect Oregon to come out flat in the first half in its first true road game while Michigan will look extremely motivated to make a statement at home after losing to Illinois in its last game. Michigan has gotten off to fast starts at home all season long and I expect the Wolverines to open up a decent lead in the first half that will carry over into halftime so I think that this number is a bit too low. Give me the home team.

Prediction: Michigan 1H
