Happ is tops for the Badgers with 17.8 PPG and 8.4 RPG, while Brad Davison is second on 11.3 PPG. They’re the only two Wisconsin players in double-figures, but D’Mitrik Trice is close on 9.4 PPG.
The Wolverines are 7-0 ATS in their last seven games following a straight-up loss and 5-0 ATS in their last five Sunday games. Michigan is also 5-2 ATS in their last seven games following an ATS loss and 5-2 ATS in their last seven road games.
Meanwhile, the Badgers are 2-6-2 ATS in their last 10 games following an ATS win and the over is 3-0-1 in their last four games following an ATS win. The under is 4-1 in Wisconsin’s last five home games and 8-3-3 in their last 14 Sunday games.
Michigan scored just 20 points in the second half versus Northwestern, and didn’t look much like a ranked team. The Wolverines have scored a combined 110 points in two games versus the Wildcats. As for Wisconsin, their last win looked good but it did come against a bad Illinois team. I think Michigan rebounds here and covers.
