College Basketball Picks: Michigan Wolverines @ Wisconsin Badgers
Date: Saturday, February 9th, 12:00 ET
Location: Kohl Center, Madison, WI
Michigan vs. Wisconsin Live TV: ESPN
The Badgers and the Wolverines are both in the midst of terribly tough stretches of schedule, and neither really has passed their tests with flying colors at this point. Oh sure, both survived overtime battles at home on Wednesday night, but the wins over the Iowa Hawkeyes and Ohio State Buckeyes respectively should have come much easier than they did. Of course, Michigan still has that loss on the road at the Indiana Hoosiers in the back of its head as well. Remember that Wisconsin did, after all, win in Bloomington a few weeks ago in shocking fashion. The key to this game is going to be pace. If these young guards for the Wolverines can’t handle the pressure of playing on the road against a defensive minded team that gets its crowd into the game like none other in the conference, it’s going to be a long day for the Big Blue Nation. Madison is just hell to play in, and so many have found that out over the course of the last several years. Don’t be shocked if the Badgers end up busting up Michigan for the win that could ultimately ensure that the team is dancing come March.
Michigan vs. Wisconsin Pick: Wisconsin Badgers -1.5
Michigan vs. Wisconsin Prediction: Wisconsin 66 – Michigan 64
