Tom Stryker’s Free Basketball Play January 20th


#712 WISCONSIN (-11′) over Northwestern at 8 PM EST
Checking in with a little steam off Friday’s 60-54 road win and cover at Rutgers, Wisconsin will have no problems with this struggling Northwestern squad. The Purple Cats are in the middle of a hideous 0-5 SU and ATS run and have dropped their last five battles by an average of 18.4 points per game. Things definitely won’t get any easier for the Wildcats at this venue either.

One thing Wisconsin does well is protect the Kohl Center. The Badgers have quietly posted a proud 38-6 SU record (21-17-1 ATS) in their last 44 games in Madison. Equally impressive, at home running with four or more days of rest, UW holds a powerful 62-37 ATS mark provided its opponent arrives off a straight up loss. As long as the Badgers are not off a blowout win of 10 points or more, this team trend jets to a money-making 45-22 ATS. Finally, in this series checking in with a little steam off a straight up win, Wisconsin owns a solid 15-2 SU and 13-3-1 ATS mark in the last 17 meetings.

Northwestern will be glad to get this game over too. This battle against the Badgers will be the seventh consecutive ranked opponent that the Wildcats have faced in their last seven games. That’s a school record! To make matters worse, in Big 10 play, the Purple own a feeble 10-47 SU and 19-36-2 ATS record in their last 57 tries including a horrible 6-42 SU and 13-34-1 ATS provided their opponent does not enter off a blowout loss of 13 points or more. Also, since the start of the 2020 season, Big 10 road teams in conference play have inked a miserable 20-32 SU and 23-29 ATS record. If our “play against” side is running the floor against a foe that holds a team won/loss percentage of .640 or better, this conference trend falls to a woeful 12-30 SU and 15-27 ATS including 8-27 SU and 10-25 ATS provided their opponent does not arrive off a blowout loss of 12 points or more.

At home in Big Ten battles, the Badgers have posted a proud 142-27 SU record over the past 15 seasons. Off the win at Rutgers, head coach Greg Gard’s boys will totally dominate this exhausted Northwestern bunch. Take Wisconsin. Thanks and best of luck, Tom.
