North Carolina”s games are averaging 159 points per game this year, while Wisconsin”s game are only at 112.2 points per game. Even more specifically, the battle to watch is the Tar Heels” offense (#6 at 88.0 points per game) versus the Badgers” defense (#1 at 39.2 points per game).
We know that UNC is going to have the ability to do a lot with its frontcourt. The reason that a ton of people make college basketball wagering picks on the Tar Heels is because of John Henson, Harrison Barnes, and Tyler Zeller. This trio has been good for over 46 points and over 20 boards per game between them, and they are all shooting at least 47.6 percent from the field.
The Badgers have the bigs to counter this threesome though, as they will count on Jared Berggren, Jordan Taylor, and Mike Bruesewitz to play tough defense.
Taylor has gotten off to a bit of a slow start this year at 11.0 points and 5.0 boards per game, but both Berggren and Ben Brust are making up for it. These two have helped the Badgers put together a perfect start to the season for those making college basketball odds picks on them. Brust is averaging 12.8 points per game, while Berggren has been good for 12.3 points and 5.3 boards per game.
Wisconsin is built on its defense, but the team is averaging 73.0 points per game thus far on the campaign, and it is a fantastic shooting outfit. The Badgers are knocking down 49.4 percent of their shots from the field, while converting at a remarkable 47.2 percent clip from beyond the arc (#3 in the country). Even if North Carolina starts to run the ball up and down the court, Wisky has the shooters to be able to keep up.
College Basketball Betting Pick – The Tar Heels won the only game that these two teams have played in recent memory, taking an 88-82 decision back in the 2005 NCAA Tournament. The Badgers were able to stick inside of the 9.5-points that day, and we tend to think that we see the exact same story line come to fruition on Wednesday night.
