Wisconsin Team Preview

The Wisconsin Badgers come into this game looking to bounce back after an 88-86 OT loss to Iowa in their last game. AJ Storr leads the Badgers in scoring with 16.5 PPG while Steven Crowl has 11.3 PPG with a team-high 7.7 RPG to lead the Badgers on the glass so far this season. Tyler Wahl has 11.3 PPG with 5.8 RPG, capping off the group of double-digit scorers for Wisconsin so far this season. Chucky Hepburn also has 8.2 PPG and a team-high 3.8 APG to lead the Badgers in the assist department while Max Klesmit has 9.4 PPG this season. As a team, Wisconsin is averaging 74.3 PPG on 46.4% shooting from the field, 34.4% from behind the arc and 75.6% from the foul line this season.

Maryland vs. Wisconsin Prediction

I’m on Maryland here. The Badgers are at home and home court has been a viable angle in betting on the Big Ten this season. However, Wisconsin’s struggled, and even the games that the Terrapins are losing have been close way more often than not this season. Not to mention the Terrapins also have the most efficient defense in the Big Ten this season. I wouldn’t be surprised if this game came down to the wire and if it ended up being a Big Ten black and blue slugfest, so give me Maryland and the points.
