Wisconsin is 15-7-2 ATS in their last 24 NCAA Tournament games and 1-8 ATS in their last 9 games as a favorite. The over is 4-0 in Wisconsin’s last 4 NCAA Tournament games.
Colgate comes into this game on a very long winning streak and will give Wisconsin all they can handle. Wisconsin finished tied for first in the Big Ten, but lost two games to end the year. When you look at Wisconsin’s last 5 games, they have not been very impressive. I like Colgate with the points here.
