If you like Villanova to win (i.e. Villanova won’t be intentionally fouling Michigan late in the game), I think Muhammad-Ali Abdur-Rahkman under 2.5 made free throws (+110) is a pretty solid play. In Michigan’s seven losses this season, Abdur-Rahkman averaged less than three free throw attempts per game. Villanova ranks in the tenth percentile of fewest fouls per game in college basketball. .
