Badgers fall at Marquette in OT
Wisconsin dropped a 74-69 thriller Saturday afternoon at Marquette as it was outscored 13 in the extra session. Ethan Happ led the Badgers (8-2) with a game-best 34 points on 16-of-21 shooting with 11 rebounds, four assists and three steals. Nate Reuvers contributed 11 points, four boards and two assists. D'Mitrik Trice tallied 10 points, seven caroms and five dimes. Wisconsin shot 27-of-54 from the floor, but were only 5-of-24 from 3-point range and an equally dismal 10-of-21 from the charity stripe.

The Tigers are 1-4 ATS in their last five games following an ATS loss. Savannah State is 1-5 ATS in its last six Thursday games.
The Badgers are 5-0 ATS in their last five Thursday games. Wisconsin is 1-4 ATS in its last five games overall.
Well, there are few teams in the country worse than Savannah State. The only truly respectful performance it had this season was in the season opener as it lost by a count of 98-83 at Texas A&M. Since then, it has been all losses by 20 or more points plus three wins against also-pitiful teams. As long as Wisconsin is a 36.5-point favorite or less, I'm taking the hosts here.
