Saturday Service Picks and Consensus Reports
Re: Saturday Service Picks and Consensus Reports
Robert Ferringo's picks for Saturday:
6-Unit Play. Take #749 Marquette (+3) over Wisconsin (6 p.m., Saturday, Dec. 8)
Note: This is our Game of the Week.
Wisconsin has had the upper hand in this series, but I think that's about to change. I don't believe that this is the same caliber of Badgers team that we've seen lately. They are solid, but I think that Marquette is exceptional. They get incredible pressure with their guards and I don't think that Wisconsin will be able to handle it. I think the Big East is superior to the Big Ten, and if you use a common opponent (Duke) as a baseline the Eagles lost by four and the Badgers lost by 24. I know that's always dangerous to do - common opponent - but the thing is that Marquette belonged on the same court with the Blue Devils while Wisconsin looked totally overmatched. These two teams played last year and the Badgers managed a four-point win. But they lost their top two scorers from that game, and they combined for 41 of the 70 points that Wiscy scored. I think Marquette is a better team this year and that Wisconsin is not, and I think we're getting great value with the better team and the points. We have a reverse line movement in this game, we have the best player on the floor (Dominic James) and hopefully another winner.
