On a recent episode of The Steam Room podcast, Barkley stated that he has his money on Washington. Now, the Michigan team is going into this game as a fan favorite. Their defense is said to be brilliant and can make scoring, for any other team, a difficult task to pull off. However, Sir Charles is very sure of his predictions favoring Washington, also because most of it has been spot on. He said, “I’m all in on Washington.”

“I thought Michigan was the best team that I saw all year offensively and defensively. They proved me to be correct”, Barkley said.

He said, “Washington is gonna score on anybody. Washington can flat-out score on anybody”.
