The Wisconsin Badgers need a feel good victory after splitting their last eight games. The Wisconsin Badgers are averaging 69.9 points on 41.1 percent shooting and allowing 65.2 points on 43.3 percent shooting. Nigel Hayes is averaging 16.3 points and 4.1 assists while Bronson Koenig is averaging 15.1 points and 2.9 rebounds.

The Islanders are 1-5 ATS in their last 6 games following a straight up win and 5-1 ATS in their last 6 road games. The Badgers are 1-4 ATS in their last 5 home games and 2-7 ATS in their last 9 non-conference games.
Wisconsin is clearly a team that's going to have growing pains early on this season. However, both of the Islanders losses this season have come on the road and they've lost to lesser talented teams than Wisconsin. If the Badgers can't win and cover this game then their issues are even bigger than I thought.
