Analysis
Gold Standard on Wisconsin The Badgers are coming off a 65-63 upset of 12th-ranked Houston as eight-point underdogs. Small schools such as Saint Mary’s have difficulty matching up with Power 5 teams. They just can’t get the athletes to play for them so they lack depth. You’ll see the difference in this game with these back to back games of the tournaments. The Badgers continue to dominate opponents defensively and they haven’t given up more than 63 points in a game this season, with opponents making only 35 percent of their shots. The Gaels played well offensively in their first three games, but they’ve struggled since the competition got better, averaging 65 points per game in their last three games, so expect them to have a hard time scoring against the Badgers. Even though the Badgers have also struggled offensively, they will play well in this game because they have the rebounding edge, averaging over 11 offensive boards per game, which will lead to extra scoring opportunities, so go with Wisconsin to cover the spread.
