Why Northwestern can cover

Wisconsin has been struggling to meet expectations in conference play, losing three of its last four games and failing to cover the spread in seven straight contests. The Badgers have dropped each of their last two road games by double digits, including a 63-45 loss at Indiana last Saturday. They are facing a Northwestern team that has been strong at home, going 8-3 in its 11 games at Welsh-Ryan Arena. 

The Wildcats have been an excellent defensive team, allowing just 60.8 points per game. They are led by the duo of Chase Audige and Boo Buie, a pair of senior guards who are combining to score more than 30 points per contest. The Wildcats will be motivated for their first game in eight days, especially since they have lost their last seven games against Wisconsin. 

Why Wisconsin can cover

Wisconsin had lost three straight games without co-leading scorer Tyler Wahl, but he returned in a 63-60 win against Penn State last week. The preseason All-Big Ten selection had 10 points and five rebounds in 33 minutes of action against the Nittany Lions. Wahl is averaging 12.9 points and 6.3 rebounds per game, while Steven Crowl is adding 12.9 points and a team-high 6.8 rebounds. 

Freshman guard Connor Essegian made his first start against Penn State and is averaging 10.5 points while knocking down a team-best 36 3-pointers. Northwestern’s defense has started to struggle during conference play, allowing an average of 71.5 points per game against Big Ten opponents. The Wildcats have not only lost seven straight games to Wisconsin, but they have failed to cover the spread in all seven of those games.
