Wisconsin is 2-5 ATS in their last 7 road games and 4-12-1 ATS in their last 17 games. The under is 6-2 in Wisconsin’s last 8 games. Michigan is 6-2-1 ATS in their last 9 home games and 5-2 ATS in their last 7 games. The over is 4-1 in Michigan’s last 5 home games. The underdog is 17-8 ATS in these two teams last 25 head to head meetings.
Michigan has picked up two huge wins in their last two games and they are creeping closer and closer to being in the first four out for the tournament. Wisconsin has alternated wins and losses over their last five games, which included a 64-59 win against Michigan. Michigan played some of their best defense in their last win against Rutgers and I think that will continue here. I like Michigan to pick up another win in this matchup.
