The Northwestern Wildcats and Wisconsin Badgers face off on Monday in a college basketball showdown at the Welsh Ryan Arena. This game was originally supposed to take place on Sunday but Northwestern was dealing with COVID issues. When these two teams faced off last January it was Wisconsin that secured the 82-76 victory.

Northwestern comes into this game with a 12-5 record overall and they have gone 9-8 against the spread. Last Sunday against Michigan, Northwestern scored 78 points, but the defense gave up 85 points which led to the defeat. Boo Buie had a strong game finishing with 22 points, five assists, and three rebounds. Northwestern is averaging 68.9 points while their defense is giving up 60.8 points per game. The defense is ranked 15th and they need the defense to step up here. Chase Audige is averaging 15.3 points while shooting 38.1 percent from the field.

On the other side of this matchup is Wisconsin who sits with a 12-5 record overall and they have gone 8-9 against the spread. Last Tuesday against Penn State the defense stepped up in a big way giving up only 60 points and that led to the three-point victory. Steven Crowl had another strong game finishing with 21 points and 11 rebounds. The Badgers are averaging 66.6 points while their defense is giving up 62.7 points per game. On the season Crowl is averaging 12.9 points while shooting 50 percent from the field. Make sure to check out all our other free college basketball plays for Monday. 

Northwestern vs Wisconsin Trends

Wisconsin is 0-7 against the spread in their last seven games. The over is 4-1 in the Badgers last five road games. The under is 4-1 in Kentucky’s last five home games against a team with a losing record. 

Shane’s Free Pick

These are both teams that are most comfortable playing slower paces and the Badgers defense has been playing well heading into this game. The pace of this game is going to be a crawl, and that will lead to this game being lower scoring. I don’t expect either of these teams to reach 60 points. Back the under.
