Minnesota Golden Gophers
The under is 22-7-1 in the Golden Gophers’ last 30 road games, is 7-3 in their last 10 games overall and is 25-10-1 in their last 36 games as an underdog.
As profitable as the under has been in recent Minnesota games, the over has been just as profitable in Wisconsin matchups. The over is 5-0 in the Badgers’ last six games overall, is 4-0-1 in their last five home games and is a perfect 7-0 in their last seven home matchups when facing an opponent like Minnesota that owns a losing road record at tip-off.
College Basketball Prediction
Given the way the over has cashed in recent Wisconsin games, I’m going to pass on the total and take a side. That said is Wisconsin, which is 4-0-1 against the spread in its last five games overall, is 3-0-1 against the number in its last four home games and is 5-2-2 at the window in its last nine games coming off an ATS win. The Golden Gophers, meanwhile, are 1-3-1 against the spread in their last five games overall, are 1-4 against the number in their last five road games when they’re an underdog and are 0-5-1 ATS in their last six games when facing an opponent like Wisconsin that owns a win percentage above .600.
