Two teams coming off huge letdowns try to rebound on Wednesday when Northwestern hosts Rutgers. The Wildcats had Iowa on the ropes for most of Sunday’s game before suffering a 2nd half meltdown en route to a 79-80 loss. The Scarlet Knights took a streaking Illinois team to OT, but lost 94-99.
Rutgers Scarlet Knights
The Rutgers offense definitely looked good against the Illini with the 94 point outing but obviously their defense has some issues to resolve after allowing nearly 100 points on Saturday. It raises a question of whether Rutgers’ offense was clicking or if it was the result of playing the fast paced Illinois squad.

Prior to the Illinois game, the Scarlet Knights hadn’t put up more than 66 points in 6 of 7 games. Wednesday’s O/U is just 132 so it will be a slow it down game against Northwestern. When the two teams met up last month for example the final was 57-65 in favor of the Wildcats in New Jersey.
Northwestern played a good Iowa team tough on Sunday – as they usually do. The Wildcats were up 41-35 at half in a game they were +10.5 underdogs. The Hawkeyes got hot from beyond the arc which was the downfall of Northwestern in that one. Rutgers is one of the worst 3-point shooting teams in the country at 31.8%.
In the first meeting with Rutgers, Northwestern got the 8-point road win as -2 favorites going away. The -5.5 spread for Wednesday’s rematch seems a bit low considering the Wildcats are a solid 9-4 at Welsh-Ryan while Rutgers is 2-7 on the road.

- Scarlet Knights are 2-5 ATS the last 7 vs. a team with a home winning percentage above .600
- Wildcats are 3-7 ATS their last 10 overall
