The Michigan Wolverines have had a tough start to the season with four losses after beginning the season in the top 10 and will look make a statement that they were worthy of the preseason hype on Thursday against Central Florida.

(stats as of Wednesday morning)

Each of Central Florida’s top three scorers are making over 40 percent of their 3-point shots, but as a collective unit, the Knights make just 33.7 percent of their outside shots.

Michigan counters with a defense that is allowing opponents to make just 25 percent of their 3’s, which ranks ninth in the country, while also ranking 23rd nationally in rebound rate.

The Wolverines will look to take advantage of a UCF defense that is allowing opponents to make 52 percent of their 2-point shots, which is 263rd among Division I teams and Michigan is 49th among 358 Division I teams in percentage of points that come from made 2-point shots.

With Central Florida committing a turnover on 20.4 percent of their possessions, which ranks 264th in the nation, Michigan will pick up a much needed win on Thursday.

Pick: Michigan -3.5
