Wisconsin vs Rutgers Prediction | College Basketball Betting Picks
The Badgers have just one loss against an unranked team since November. That loss was two weeks ago to Rutgers, who was the hottest team in the country as that time. They had rolled off four straight top-20 wins prior to losing to Purdue, then Michigan.
So, have the Scarlet Knights fallen back to Earth? This is going to be a close, competitive game. However, Wisconsin should get the close win. With the Badgers actually getting points, we will take them on the road.
