The Wisconsin Badgers are off to a 2-1 start to the season after opening with a loss to Western Illinois then beating Siena and North Dakota. Wisconsin is averaging 79 points and they are shooting 45.3 percent from the floor including 34 percent from beyond the three-point arc while defensively they are allowing 66 points and their opponents are shooting 46.8 percent.

Nigel Hayes is averaging 14 points, Vitto Brown is averaging 13 points and 5.7 rebounds, and Ethan Happ is averaging 9.7 points and 5.7 rebounds. Wisconsin lost in the title game last season and would love a chance to avenge that loss.
Georgetown is 4-0 against the spread following a loss, 4-0 against the spread against the Big Ten, and 2-12 against the spread following a game that they covered the point spread. Wisconsin is 15-6-1 against the spread in their last 22 neutral site games, 1-4 against the spread against the Big East, and 4-1 against the spread following a game that they didn’t cover the point spread.
Neither of these teams have been at their best so while it is just a lean my play here is Georgetown plus the points.
