The 2018 NCAA Tournament comes to an end this evening with what should be an exciting national title tilt.

On one side will be Villanova's impeccable chemistry. The Wildcats have star power with Jalen Brunson and plenty of NBA talent, and share the ball as well as anyone. It doesn't hurt when you make 18 three-pointers either, like they did against Kansas last night.

On the other side will be Michigan's toughness and stellar defensive play. The Wolverines are led by big man Moe Wagner, and they are capable of shooting it from deep as well as Villanova, though they're coming off back-to-back poor performances beyond the arc.

So who will win? Does Villanova cut down the nets for the second time in three years, or does Michigan do it for the first time since 1989?

OddsShark's computer model has put out its prediction for the game. It likes the Wildcats in a tight one.

Here's the OddsShark prediction:
