Happ posts triple-double in win

Wisconsin cruised to a 62-46 home win Saturday against Northwestern to improve to 14-6 on the season and 6-3 in the Big Ten Conference. The Badgers took a 34-24 lead into halftime on its way to the convincing game. Wisconsin shot 24-of-56 from the field, 9-of-19 from 3-point distance and 5-of-9 from the free throw line. Brad Davison led the way with 18 points on 6-of-14 shooting including 3-of-6 from 3-point distance plus 3-of-3 from the free throw line. He also tallied six rebounds and two assists. D'Mitrik Trice also scored 18 points to go with three boards and two assists. Ethan Happ had a big game with a triple-double of 13 points, 12 rebounds, 11 assists, two steals and two blocked shots.

Cornhuskers drop third straight

Nebraska lost 70-60 at home Saturday against Ohio State to fall to 13-7 on the season and 3-6 in the Big Ten. To make matters worse, the Cornhuskers lost senior forward Isaac Copeland Jr. for the season due to injury. James Palmer Jr. contributed 19 points on 7-of-17 shooting including 3-of-6 from 3-point distance plus 2-of-3 at the free throw line. He also contributed four assists and three rebounds. Glynn Watson Jr. added 18 points in 32 minutes of action. Nebraska fell behind 29-24 at halftime and could not bounce back. Nebraska shot 21-of-58 from the field, 8-of-22 from 3-point distance and 10-of-12 from the free throw line.

College Basketball Betting Trends

Wisconsin

The Badgers are 11-3 ATS in their last 14 road games. Wisconsin is 11-4 ATS in its last 15 games versus the Big Ten.

Nebraska

The Cornhuskers are 8-1 ATS in their last nine Tuesday games. Nebraska is 1-5 ATS in its last six games versus the Big Ten.

Prediction:

Nebraska has lost some tough games this season and are better than its record, but the last two performances are inexcusable. With Copeland Jr. going down for the season and Wisconsin putting everything together lately, I think the Cornhuskers are favored by a point or two too many. Now that Nebraska has shown vulnerability at home, I think we can safely bet against it on a line like this.
