College Basketball Betting Trends

Wisconsin

The Badgers are 4-1 ATS in their last five Sunday games. Wisconsin is 1-5-1 ATS in its last seven Big Ten games.

Prediction:

The Badgers have lost two of their last three road games straight up and will be dealing with an Ohio State squad on Senior Day. The Buckeyes aren't an NCAA Tournament team unless they do the unlikely task of running the table in the Big Ten Tourney, but they have won their last two home games straight up and should be hyped for this contest. Look for OSU to lean on its defense to slow down the efficiency of the Wisconsin offense, while also finding cracks in the elite Badgers defense. Go with the hosts to get it done today.
