It’s a rivalry game in the Big Ten Conference on Thursday night. The Iowa Hawkeyes travel to Madison to take on the Wisconsin Badgers.
Is this the game the Badgers finally get their season back on track or will the Iowa Hawkeyes take one step closer to clinching a NCAA Tournament berth?
The Iowa Hawkeyes probably turned it on too late in the season to get an NCAA Tournament birth, but they are playing much better basketball as of late.
They come into this game with a 16-13 record and sit in 8th place in the Big Ten. The Hawkeyes have won their last two games. The Big Ten so wide open it wouldn’t be surprising to many people if the Hawkeyes did end up winning the Big Ten tournament and punching a birth into the NCAA Tournament.
The Hawkeyes are very good on the offensive side of the floor and very poor on the defensive side of the floor. They come into this averaging 80.6 points on the offensive end which is 31st in the nation. On the defensive end they give up over 77 points a game which is 299 in the country.
For the Hawkeyes to win it’s going to come down to the defensive side of the ball. Iowa will get their points but they need to make sure they stop the Badgers on the other end of the floor.
If you just look at the Wisconsin Badgers record it looks like they are having a really successful season, but they have picked a really bad time to start struggling.
They come into this game with a 22-7 record and sit in 2nd place in the Big Ten. They have lost four of their last five games however. With games remaining against the Hawkeyes and the Gophers, they could end up losing out going into the Big Ten Tournament.
The Badgers strength is on the defensive side of the floor. They only give up 62.1 points per game which is 11th best in all the country. During the last two games they have given up 83 and 84 points respectively.
For the Badgers to win it’s all going to come down to the defensive end. The Hawkeyes can score a lot of points and in a hurry. They need to slow down the pace of this game and really focus on the defensive side of the floor.
CBB Betting Trends:
- Under is 12-4-2 in WIS last 18 home games.

Free Iowa Hawkeyes vs. Wisconsin Badgers NCAAB Prediction:
This game could go either way. But I really think the Hawkeyes will come into this game motivated, knowing if they lose their NCAA Tournament hopes are probably gone.
I don’t know if the Hawkeyes hot start will be enough, but 10.5 points is way too much for a Wisconsin team that is really struggling. I think The Badgers win but Iowa will cover the spread.
