The Wisconsin Badgers hope to keep the ball rolling after winning three of their last four games. The Wisconsin Badgers are averaging 74.4 points on 44.1 percent shooting and allowing 68.4 points on 45.3 percent shooting. Bronson Koenig is averaging 17.6 points and 3.2 assists while Nigel Hayes is averaging 14.8 points and 4.2 rebounds. Ethan Happ is grabbing 7.6 rebounds and Zak Showalter is dishing 2.2 assists.

The Panthers are 4-1 ATS in their last 5 road games vs. a team with a winning home record and 6-2 ATS in their last 8 non-conference games. The Badgers are 1-4 ATS in their last 5 Wednesday games and 1-5 ATS in their last 6 non-conference games.
Wisconsin simply isn't the same team from last season after losing a ton of talent and playing a bunch of freshmen. The Badgers can struggle to score for long stretches. While Prairie View A&M isn't good, the Panthers should be better off after playing so many road games already this year. I just can't lay this many points with a young Badgers team that's still finding their way.
