Wisconsin vs. Temple Pick

College Basketball Predictions: Will Wisconsin cover at Temple? 12/6/17

Can Wisconsin go on the road and possibly upset Temple when the two teams meet tonight at 7PM ET?

According to oddsmakers at Bovada.lv, Temple is favored at home tonight, as the Owls are getting odds of -4.5 points against Wisconsin. The over/under total for the contest has been set at 135.5 points. Tonight’s game takes place from Liacouras Center in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania and will air live on ESPNU.

Wisconsin snapped a two-game losing streak on Monday with a 64-63 win at Penn State. The Badgers are 4-5 on the season while going 3-5 against the spread. They are also 1-1 ATS on the road. Wisconsin is putting up 67.7 points per game on offense while allowing just 64.1 per contest. Ethan Happ is leading the team with 15.4 points and 8.9 rebounds per game while Brad Davison is putting up 10.2 points and 2.1 steals per contest.

Temple is coming off a 71-67 loss at George Washington on Sunday to fall to 4-3 on the season. The Owls are 4-3 against the spread, failing to cover in all of their losses. Temple is averaging 76.2 points per game on offense while giving up 69.5 per game. The Owls are being led by Quinton Rose, who is averaging 19 points and 5.8 rebounds per game. Shizz Alston Jr. is adding 16 points and 4.3 rebounds per game.

Bet on Wisconsin vs. Temple

Wisconsin has won five of its last six meetings with Temple, covering the spread in all five victories. Temple is 4-1 against the spread in its last five home games and 13-5 ATS in its last 18 non-conference games. Wisconsin is just 3-9-1 ATS in its last 13 road games. Wisconsin has struggled most of the season. While coming off a nice win over Penn State, I think the Badgers go back to struggling against the Owls. The public betting is backing Temple and I think the Owls get the job done at home.
