Northwestern vs. Wisconsin, 02/01/2018 20:30 EDT, Score: 60 - 52

Money Line: -140 Wisconsin

Sportsbook: PinnacleSports

Result: Loss

This is an 8* play on the Wisconsin Badgers.

I bet Wisconsin in their last game against Nebraska, and here is what I had to say prior to Tuesday's game: "The Badgers have had a tough season, and they come into tonight's home game as losers of five of their last six overall. All five of those losses came on the road though, and they won their last home game by a whopping 25 points versus Illinois. They have only played three home games versus BIG10 teams, winning two of three by a combined 35 points. They host the Nebraska Cornhuskers tonight, and Nebraska has lost three of it's last four on the road. While they did win at Rutgers, they lost at Penn State, Ohio State and were blown out by Purdue. The Badgers are 4-1 ATS in their last five home games, and the home team is 6-2-1 ATS in the last nine head to head meetings between these two teams. The Badgers play lock down defense at home, holding opponents to fewer than 65 points per game. These teams played earlier this month at Nebraska, and it was a close game, with the Cornhuskers winning by just four points. I like the Badgers chances of returning the favor here tonight." Wisconsin dominated play for most of the game, but blew a late lead. They face a Northwestern team that has lost six of eight on the road, scoring an average of just 61.6 points in those games. The Wildcats have failed to score 50 points in two of their last three road games.

Take WISC.
