Wisconsin vs. Tennessee Pick
Will Wisconsin cover as a double-digit favorite against Tennessee this afternoon in the Maui Jim Maui Invitational at 2:30PM ET?
According to oddsmakers from online sports book Bovada.lv, the Badgers are 14-point home favorites versus the Volunteers while the over/under currently sits at 144.5 points. The total hasn't moved off that 144.5 number, but Wisconsin opened as a 13-point favorite before climbing to -14.
TENNESSEE KEY TRENDS: The Volunteers are 6-0 against the spread in their last six games after scoring more than 90 points in their previous game but have struggled against Big Ten opponents, going 1-3-1 at the betting window in their last five games versus that conference. Tennessee has also dropped seven of its last nine games at the betting window and is 1-4 against the spread in its last five games coming off a failed cover in its previous game.
WISCONSIN KEY TRENDS: The Badgers are 11-4 against the number in their last 15 games coming off a win and are 7-3-1 against the spread in their last 11 games versus SEC opponents. That said, they're just 2-5 at the betting window in their last seven games played on neutral courts and have dropped six of seven against the spread in their last seven games when their opponent scores 100 points or more in their previous game.
OUR PREDICTION: The under is the best play on the board this afternoon. The under is 4-0 in the Badgers' last four neutral site games and is 11-2 in their last 13 games overall. The under is also 8-2 in Wisconsin's last 10 games coming off a win and is 9-4 in its last 13 games versus SEC opponents. On the other side, the under is 5-1 in the Vols' last six games coming off a win and is 17-4 in their last 21 games after scoring more than 90 points in their previous contest.
