The Oregon Ducks and Wisconsin Badgers face off on Tuesday in a college basketball showdown in the NIT at Matthew Knight Arena. When these two teams faced off in 2019 it was Oregon that secured the 72-54 victory. 

Oregon Betting Preview

Oregon comes into this game with a 19-14 record overall and they have gone 14-17-2 against the spread. On Sunday, Oregon faced off against UCF, and the defense was elite giving up only 54 points on the way to the victory. Center Nate Bittle had a strong game finishing with 21 points, 13 rebounds, and two assists. Oregon is averaging 71 points while their defense is giving up 66.4 points per game. N’Faly Dante is averaging 13. 4 points while shooting 61.4 percent from the field. In this game if the offense is good, Oregon is going to have a shot to secure the win. 

Wisconsin Betting Preview

On the other side of this matchup is Wisconsin who sits with a 19-14 record overall and they have gone 14-17-2 against the spread. On Sunday against the Liberty Flames, the offense was strong scoring 75 points and that was enough to win by four points. Chucky Hepburn had a strong game finishing with 27 points and three rebounds. Wisconsin is averaging 65.7 points while their defense is giving up 64 points per game. Steven Crowl has been the top player for Wisconsin averaging 12.3 points while shooting 51.2 percent from the field and 31.4 percent behind the three point line. 

Oregon vs Wisconsin Trends

Wisconsin is 5-1-2 against the spread in their last 8 games vs. a team with a winning straight up record. The over is 4-0 in Badgers last 4 road games following three or more consecutive home games. The Badgers are 0-9-2 against the spread in their last 11 games following a straight up win.

Shane’s Free Pick

I don’t trust Wisconsin’s offense, and they are going to struggle in this game. They were better in the last game, but overall they are averaging 65.7 points per game. Oregon is averaging 71 points per game and they are going to find enough offensive success in this game. Wisconsin is going to have no answer, and Oregon will cover the spread.
