The Badgers are almost a strange underdog even on the road at Rutgers on Wednesday night. Wisconsin had a very impressive win to kick off Big Ten play on Saturday, winning by 20 over Indiana.
Regardless, Rutgers finds themselves as -1.5 favorites at RAC in this one. The Scarlet Knights have gone 6-0 at home on the season and they’ve also proven to be somewhat of a thorn in UW’s side over the past couple years.
Wisconsin really couldn’t have asked for a better start to conference play. The Badgers upended what looks to be a very good Indiana squad 84-64 with Greg Gard’s squad shooting 54$% from the floor.
The Badgers are forming a nice scoring duo between Kobe King and Nate Reuvers. King had his highest output of the season vs. the Hoosiers knocking in 24 points.
Reuvers upped his team leading scoring average to 15.4 with 20 points vs. Indiana. It was a nice bounce back win for Wisconsin, who took a 54-69 loss at NC State in the Big 10 / ACC Challenge.
That loss to the Wolfpack was the 3rd in a row for Wisconsin. They also were in two upset losses, by 9 points to New Mexico(WIS -6.5) and 10 to Richmond (WIS -6). Those defeats came at the Legends Classic in Brooklyn.
Wisconsin doesn’t do a lot of scoring at just 68.4 ppg. They do have a top 60 scoring defense though. That’s the big reason why the total for this matchup is a microscopic 125.
Rutgers Scarlet Knights
Rutgers has been getting it done at home this season, posting a 6-0 record at the RAC. They’ve lost all 3 of their ‘non-home’ games but that doesn’t matter Wednesday from Piscataway.
The Scarlet Knights fell by 12 in their Big 10 opener, putting up a fight vs. Michigan State by being down just 5 at the half but ultimately bowing out 65-77. That followed an 11 point loss to PITT in the Big 10 / ACC Challenge.
Despite their relatively strong start, Rutgers is still searching for a signature win. The Scarlet Knights have been at least a -9 favorite in every game but the last two, and they even lost one of those – a 6 point defeat to St. Bonaventure in Canada.
Rutgers must be favored for a reason Wednesday, right? They have played the Badgers tough in recent memory, losing by 5 last December despite the fact Wisconsin shot 53% from the field.
Rutgers won by 4 two years ago and lost in OT a year before that – also against much better Badgers teams than we see in this year’s incarnation.

Free Wisconsin Badgers vs. Rutgers Scarlet Knights NCAAB Prediction:
The Badgers looked great in the Big 10 opener, but that was also against an Indiana team playing their 1st game away from home on the season. This team is too well coached to drop an early season defeat like this.
4* Free CBB Betting Pick: Badgers +1.5
this game will likely be close, but that’s incredible value on this Wisconsin team.
