Badgers vs MSU (Big Ten Tourney Betting Preview)

What’s on the table today?: Badgers vs MSU (Big Ten Tourney Betting Preview)

Today in the Big Ten Tournament quarterfinals the Wisconsin Badgers will take on the Michigan State Spartans at 5:30pm on the Big Ten Network. 

The 12th-ranked Badgers split with MSU during the regular season, winning Feb. 8 86-74 in Madison and losing Jan. 21 70-62 at MSU. Wisconsin is well represented in the KenPom rankings. Overall, they are ranked as the 30th best team in the country. In terms of efficiency, the Badgers are ranked 47th offensively and 34th defensively. The Badgers will not hurt themselves offensively.

Wisconsin is favored by 2 ½ points (-2 ½) and the total sits at 138. (Odds provided by the OFFICIAL sports book of the WKTY Morning Show – BetUS) At 15-5 straight-up in Big Ten play, the Badgers have proven to be one of the more consistent teams in this conference. 

Michigan State showed some signs of life in Thursday’s 76-72 victory over Maryland as a two-point favorite. The Spartans beat the Terrapins in their final regular season game as part of a 4-7 record both SU and against the spread in their last 11 games. One of those losses came against Wisconsin on Feb. 8 in a 70-62 setback as four-point home favorites.

While I do like the Badgers to win this game, I’m going to make a play on the UNDER (138) with the thought being; this will be a defensive battle.
