Minnesota Golden Gophers
We’ll see how Minnesota fares in the Big Ten this season. It has already won at home vs. Nebraska and lost on the road at Ohio State.
That’s sort of how it’s been going the last few years for the Golden Gophers and sort of how I expect it will go for them again this year. They seem to be good for knocking off a few teams better than them at home but lose to all but the very bottom of the league on the road.
They are 0–2 in true road games so far, losing that Ohio State game by twenty and falling at BC by twelve.
This team is as experienced as last year’s team, according to the metric that weights years of experience based on minutes played. But four of the five highest scorers return this season, including Amir Coffey, who is healthy after missing the second half of last season, when it got bloody for Minnesota.
Wisconsin has already won at Iowa and at home against Rutgers, both times by a single-digit margin. It did lose its last game, overall, however, when it went into Western Kentucky and came away with a seven-point loss.
Before that, the Badgers lost at Marquette in overtime and to Virginia, by seven, in Atlantis. That’s a strong batch of non-conference losses, especially if WKU wins its conference.
Wisconsin is selective from three-point range because it plays fundamental, inside-out, basketball. The Badgers rank nearly 300th, nationally, in attempts from three but rank 30th with a percentage better than thirty-nine.

Free Minnesota Golden Gophers vs. Wisconsin Badgers NCAAB Prediction: Wisco controls the game at home.
I’m willing to believe in Minnesota this season, at least as a team that could finish in the first five and make the NCAA Tournament. But Wisconsin should be there, too, and it’s at home this time.
