The Badgers are 3-1-1 ATS in their last 5 home games and 5-2-1 ATS in their last 8 games overall. The under is 6-2 in Cornhuskers last 8 overall. The under is 6-1 in Badgers last 7 overall.

The Nebraska Cornhuskers lose on the road by an average of 11.8 points, and they enter this contest shooting just 38.5 percent from the field in their last five games. However, the Wisconsin Badgers have been very inconsistent as of late, aren't blowing teams out and are shooting just 40.1 percent from the field in their last five games. The Wisconsin Badgers are also just 2-5 ATS when favored of three or more points. This is likely going to be an ugly, low scoring, slow paced Big Ten basketball game. Give me the truckload of free buckets.
