The Nebraska Cornhuskers can play spoiler Sunday when they meet the No. 10 Wisconsin Badgers to close out the regular season. The Badgers already have a share of the Big Ten title but can win it outright with a victory.
The Cornhuskers have not been able to click under Fred Hoiberg, but the administration is backing him for at least another season. Nebraska’s hopes in this game will lie with guards Bryce McGowens and Alonzo Verge Jr. If those two get going, it will stress Wisconsin’s defense.
The Badgers have emerged seemingly out of nowhere this season. Brad Davison did come back but he was one of the few experienced guys returning. The internal development of Johnny Davis, Chucky Hepburn and Tyler Wahl has been key in this title run. We’ll see if Wisconsin can be the outright champion in what should be a comfortable game for the Badgers.
When: Sunday, March 6, 2:00 p.m. ET
Where: Kohl Center, Madison, WI
TV: Big Ten Network
Where to live stream online: Big Ten Network on FOX Sports, FOX Sports App
Live updates and stats: At DraftKings Sportsbook
Spread: Wisconsin -12.5
Double-digit spreads usually are not worth tangling with. Both teams are not that good with putting the ball in the basket, so the under is the play here. Nebraska ranks 93 in points per game, while Wisconsin is 154. The Badgers are stingy defensively, so they’ll limit the Huskers on that end as well. Take the under Sunday.
