Spread: Vegas: +8 | KenPom: L, 66-71 (31% WP)

The Wolverines head to Texas this evening to take on an SMU team that beat them up pretty good in non-conference play last season.

This is a tough matchup for Michigan and really its last big test before conference play kicks off in January. The Wolverines play a long line of cupcake teams heading into the New Year, so tonight is critical at adding a nice resume win for the NCAA Tournament.

It looks like they will again be without starting point guard Derrick Walton with Muhammad Ali Abdur-Rahkman getting the start in his place for the second straight game.
