Looking for a little early evening college basketball action? You may want to head to the Midwest for a Big Ten showdown in Ann Arbor.

Michigan is playing host to Northwestern in a battle between teams that have been underperforming on the year. While the Wolverines have strung a few wins together, beating Maryland and thrashing Indiana on the road, the Wildcats haven’t been able to do the same.

Northwestern has lost two in a row after upsetting Michigan State in East Lansing. The ‘Cats are now 9-8 and second to last in the Big Ten, only ahead of Nebraska.

Nonetheless, this is probably a better Northwestern team than its record indicates, and the team has some explosive players in Chase Audige and Pete Nance.

The best player on the court, however, could be Hunter Dickinson, who is averaging 17 points, nine rebounds and two assists on the year.

Are sharps favoring Dickinson to guide Michigan to a solid victory, or are they backing the underdogs?
