Wisconsin vs Northwestern Betting Prediction

Wisconsin had their share of struggles in the second half of the Big Ten season, but they have won two of their last three games and just dominated Maryland on Thursday. Northwestern was a bit inconsistent at times this season, but they managed to finish tied for third in the Big Ten. Wisconsin won the lone regular season meeting with Northwestern by a score of 71-63 and I like them once again here. The Badgers played their best game in recent memory on Thursday and I think they will stay hot against a Northwestern team that wasn’t great over the last seven games. Take Wisconsin here.
