2007-2008 Michigan Wolverines College Basketball Betting

College basketball betting on Michigan is going to be different this year as head coach Tommy Amaker has moved on and John Beilein takes over.

The Wolverines lose their top four scorers from a year ago, but considering how often they underachieved versus basketball odds that may not be a bad thing.

College basketball betting experts will look to Jerret Smith to run the point.  If Smith is moved to shooting guard then talented freshman Kelvin Grady may run the point.  On the wing it will be senior Ron Coleman and recruit Corperryale Harris according to college basketball betting experts.  Newcomers also include Anthony Wright, K’Len Morris and Jevohn Shepherd for fans of college basketball betting.

The frontcourt has Ekpe Udoh and DeShawn Sims according to those that follow college basketball betting.  Sims has a solid inside-outside game and could have a good year.  Many college basketball betting experts look at Michigan as a team that could surprise.  They continually disappointed basketball betting fans under Amaker.  John Beilein comes over from West Virginia and will make the program better, just maybe not right away for college basketball betting fans.  The offense for Michigan will play smart and look to shoot the three according to experts that follow college basketball betting.  Beilein is bringing a different philosophy to Michigan and it make take time for it to kick in.  It is imperative in Beilein’s system not to turn the ball over so either Smith will play smart or he will sit.  Another player that will have to play better according to college basketball betting experts is Sims.  He has the talent according to college basketball betting experts but now needs to focus on playing the game.  Coleman and Harris will also look to pick up the scoring slack according to basketball betting experts.

According to college basketball betting experts Michigan’s defense will be built around 6'10" sophomore Ekpe Udoh.  He may also get some help from Zack Gibson, a 6'10" transfer from Rutgers that sat out last season according to experts that look at college basketball betting.   Basketball betting experts think Michigan is on the right track and that Beilein will have them making noise in the conference very soon.  The Wolverines will be interesting to watch all season long and could provide value more often than not in 2007-2008.
