WISCONSIN @ NEBRASKA | 1/29 | 8:00 PM EST
The Badgers have won three straight since a loss at then-No. 19 Maryland on Jan. 14 and are coming off an efficient 62-46 victory over Northwestern on Saturday. Ethan Happ further burnished his Big Ten player of the year credentials, recording his second triple-double of the season with 13 points, 12 rebounds and 11 assists.
The Cornhuskers took a double blow in Saturday’s 70-60 home defeat to Ohio State, losing second-leading scorer Isaac Copeland (14.0 ppg) to a season-ending torn ACL as well. The forward suffered the injury landing awkwardly after attempting a dunk on a play blown dead due to traveling.
I’m projecting 140 points for Badgers-Cornhuskers, giving us a solid play on the Over. The Over is cashing in a whopping 70 percent of my model simulations.
