NCAA FREE PICK: Take Wisconsin. According to the latest college basketball trends, the Badgers are 4-0 against the spread in their last four games versus the Illini and 4-1-1 ATS in their last six trips to Illinois. The favorite is also 5-0 against the number in the last five meetings between these two teams and Illinois is 1-6 ATS in its last seven home games and 7-19 ATS in its last 26 games versus the Big Ten. The Illini are really scuffling, as evidence in their 3-8 ATS mark in their last 11 games overall. They’ve lost back-to-back conference games (80-75 versus Michigan State and 74-60 versus Michigan) and don’t appear to be up for the challenge today. While the Badgers are still looking their wounds following their 58-49 loss to Ohio State, look for Wisconsin to bounce back with a victory today. And considering they haven’t covered in their last four games, the Badgers are due to pick up an ATS win.
