Wisconsin Badgers vs Ohio State Buckeyes Prediction

Badgers will be cut in this match with highly acclaimed Buckeyes. Badgers will be without Mickey Potter among others. Buckeyes are losing West Virginia. The state of Ohio should be able to take advantage of Badger’s short bench. Ohio is a very deep team and coach Chris Holtmann has no problem going to the bench. Not only do Buckeyes have an advantage in attack, but Ohio is also the 8th best 3-point shooting team in the country. Wisconsin is at 258th on defense 3. Wisconsin is 1-2 on the road, while Bucky is 7-0 ATS this season. However, this is the Big Ten, and the spread of double-digit numbers seems high for the team, which only bypassed Tennessee by 20 points. I’ll take Wisconsin for coverage, but Ohio will win 71-63.
