NCAA Basketball Betting – Illinois Fighting Illini To Bust Slump, Beat Wisconsin Badgers
Written by Adam Markowitz of North Shore Sports, INC
Big Ten college basketball will be on display on Sunday for college basketball fanatics, and has all of the action covered. Don”t miss our NCAA basketball betting preview for this great soiree, as the Wisconsin Badgers take on the Illinois Fighting Illini.
Once considered to be an absolute lock for the NCAA Tournament, the Illini are certainly no longer a team that you would want to make your on. The 80-75 loss to the Michigan State Spartans did result in a cover in East Lansing, but it was still a game that could have and should have been won after a great first half. Alas, Illinois is left with just two wins right now in conference play with three straight very difficult games on tap.
Illinois got 16 points, six assists, and five rebounds from G Tracy Abrams against the Spartans in what amounted to be the best game that he has had since dropping 27 points on the Auburn Tigers right at the end of the calendar year. The offense still revolves around G Brandon Paul and G DJ Richardson though, as these two are combining for just under 30 points per game between them.
It”s tough to back the Badgers on the road on the NCAA basketball betting odds, knowing that they are just 1-5 ATS and 1-5 SU as legitimate visitors this year. Wisky was beaten by the Ohio State Buckeyes in an ugly 58-49 game in Columbus during the week, and the task is going to remain difficult this weekend.
Simply put, the Badgers need to score more points if they planning on going dancing this year. They”re getting 11.9 points per game out of F Jared Berggren and 10.4 points per game from G Ryan Evans. However, Evans has been a woeful shooter at times this year, hitting just 8.7 percent of his three point attempts and 39.7 percent of his shots overall from the floor. He is however, the team”s leading rebounder with 7.5 boards per night.
Foul shooting is just killing this club on the NCAA basketball betting lines as well. For a team that loves playing games in the 110s or so, every point counts, and shooting just 60.8 percent from the charity stripe as a team just isn”t going to cut it under any circumstance.
Free Prediction – This really is as nice of a matchup as the Illini could have asked for at this point in the Big Ten season. They need a win in the worst way to get back on the right side of the tourney bubble in all likelihood, and this Badgers team isn”t going to be able to keep up with the tempo that Head Coach John Groce is trying to set. This one could be some major payback for Illinois, as the Badgers won 74-51 when these two teams met just a few weeks ago.
