Northwestern vs. Wisconsin Pick

College Basketball Predictions: Will Northwestern upset Wisconsin? 2/1/18

Can Wisconsin avoid another loss at home when the Badgers play host to Northwestern tonight at 8:30PM ET?

According to oddsmakers at YouWager, Wisconsin is the favorite at home, as the Badgers are getting odds of -2.5 points against Northwestern. The over/under total for the contest is listed at 130 points. Tonight’s game takes place form the Kohl Center in Madison, Wisconsin and will air live on FS1.

Wisconsin is coming off a 74-63 loss at home to Nebraska for its third straight loss and sixth loss in seven games. The Badgers are 10-13 overall, 3-7 in the Big Ten and 8-13-1 against the spread. Wisconsin is holding opponents to only 66.6 points per game, but the Badgers are scoring just 67.8 per contest. Ethan Happ is leading Wisconsin with 17.5 points and 8.6 rebounds per game while Brad Davison adds 11.2 points per contest.

Northwestern is coming off a 58-47 loss at Michigan to snap a two-game win streak. The Wildcats are now 13-10 overall, 4-6 in the Big Ten and 8-12 against the spread. Northwestern is putting up 71.2 points per game on offense while allowing 67.6 per contest. Scottie Lindsey is leading Northwestern with 14 points per game while Bryant McIntosh is adding 12.7 points and 5.5 assists per contest.

Bet on Northwestern vs. Wisconsin

The road team has won five of the last seven meetings in this series and the Wildcats have covered in three of the last four encounters. Wisconsin hasn’t been a team you can trust. The Badgers lost by 11 to the Huskers at home and have won by 25 over teams like Illinois. Northwestern hasn’t been great on the road, but they did win at Minnesota. I think the Wildcats will keep this game tight and maybe be able to sneak out the victory. The public betting is nearly split on this one, but I will take my chances with Northwestern.
