Michigan is coming off a 61-52 loss at Northwestern this week. The Wolverines have lost three straight road games. Michigan is 19-7 overall, 8-5 in the Big Ten and 14-10-1 against the spread. U-M is averaging 72.5 points per game on offense while allowing 63.4 per game on defense. Moritz Wagner is putting up 14.4 points and 7.2 rebounds per game while Charles Matthews is adding 14 points and 5.3 rebounds per contest.
Wisconsin snapped a five-game losing streak this week with a 78-69 win at Illinois. The Badgers are now 11-15 overall, 4-9 in the Big Ten and 10-14-1 against the spread. Wisconsin is putting up 67.4 points per game this season while allowing 66.5 per contest.

Michigan has won the last two meetings with Wisconsin, covering the spread in five of the last six encounters as well. The Wolverines haven’t looked good on the road lately, but they are still capable of going on the road and winning today. The Badgers have lost at home by 8 or more to Northwestern and Nebraska. Michigan still has a lot to play for and should be focused in to win this game. The public betting is backing Michigan today and I agree with them.
