The Wisconsin Badgers and Rutgers Scarlet Knights face off on Saturday in a college basketball showdown at THE RAC. When these two teams faced off on February 12th it was Rutgers that won 73-65. 

Ron Harper Jr was the top player for Rutgers scoring 21 points. Tyler Wahl was the top player for Wisconsin scoring 23 points. Wisconsin is going to need to try to have a more balanced offensive attack. 

Wisconsin comes into this game with a 22-5 record and they have gone 15-12 against the spread. The Badgers have won three games in a row including the last game over the Gophers. Wisconsin played down a little bit to the Gophers, and they need to play better as they get closer to tournament time. Wisconsin is averaging 71.1 points while their defense is giving up 66.4 points per game. Johnny Davis has been the top player for Wisconsin averaging 20.6 points while shooting 44.8 percent from the field.

On the other side of this matchup is the Rutgers Scarlet Knights who sit with a 16-11 record and they have gone 12-13-2 against the spread. Rutgers biggest issue has been inconsistency, and they have lost two games in a row. In the last game against MIchigan, Rutgers only scored 61 points, and that led to the 12 point defeat. Rutgers is averaging 68.3 points while their defense is giving up 65.5 points. Ron Harper Jr has been the top player for Rutgers this season averaging 15.7 points while shooting 43.2 percent from the field. 

Rutgers is 7-1 against the spread in their last eight home games. Wisconsin is 1-7 against the spread in their last eight games played on Saturday. The over is 4-0 in Wisconsin’s last four games. The over is 4-1-1 Rutgers last six games against a team with a winning straight up record.

Rutgers has found success covering spreads as of late, and they also already have a win over the Badgers. I expect Wisconsin is going to struggle to score, and Rutgers will come away with the victory. Back Rutgers against the spread in this contest.
