Ohio State vs Wisconsin -1.5
Ohio State and Wisconsin are both solidly in the NCAA Tournament and now are only playing for seeding in the big dance. These two only played once this year with Wisconsin winning at home by five. The game was close the whole game, and Wisconsin pulled away late, but did not cover the spread—which was six.

ATS Overall Records

  • Wisconsin 12-15 Overall ATS, 6-7 Away ATS
Craig is going to take the Badgers in this match up. Trends and ATS records really don't point to either team having an advantage. When this occurs, you must just go with your handicapping skills. This will be a low scoring game and when looking at these situations, I always take the better defense. Wisconsin holds their opponents to under 59 points per game and will hold down the Buckeyes today. Don't expect a huge win, as this one will be close.  
SCORE   WISC 64 - OSU 59
