Wisconsin Michigan Betting – Wolverines Look To Avoid Suffering Consecutive Big Ten Losses

Posted by Washington Tucker on 2/6/2014 9:58:51 PM

The No. 19 Wisconsin Badgers dropped their second consecutive game in an overtime loss to the No. 11 Michigan State Spartans on Tuesday night, but will hope for a better result when they play their in-state rivals in the No. 13 Michigan Wolverines this Sunday at Ann Arbor. The Wolverines are also coming off a loss, and will look to avoid dropping a second-straight sports betting contest in Big Ten competition at home.

Sunday January 8, 2011 – 1:30 PM ET
Crisler Arena, Ann Arbor, Michigan
College Basketball Betting Line: Michigan Wolverines - 3

Despite keeping the final result within two points on the road at the Indiana Hoosiers, Michigan never led in that game. The Wolverines lost despite 19 points from Tim Hardaway Jr., and will need a better effort from the rest of the squad in order to prevent themselves from dropping a second in a row.

The Badgers have dropped consecutive Big Ten contests following a win over Nebraska, although they did force the Spartans to overtime at home. Team defense will be a key if Wisconsin is going to get back on track as they allowed at least 63 points in both of those two losses after holding opponents to 45 or less in three straight wins. It could be hard to hold Hardaway Jr. and company to that number, but if Jordan Taylor and company can execute on both ends of the floor this will be a competitive game.

For Hardaway Jr. to drop 19 in a Wolverines’ loss means something is wrong, and turning things around will require players like Trey Burke to do better than the 4-for-15 shooting percentage that he registered in that defeat. Poor shooting from the field led to Michigan trailing by 10 points with just over seven minutes to play, and if they manage to avoid putting themselves in another early hole they will be in a much better position to close out strong. Playing at home in the Crisler Arena should help the Wolverines avoid another slow start, as well as the threat of losing ground early on in the Big Ten. This Michigan team feels it has the talent to challenge the Spartans in the conference race, and earning big wins at home will go a long way in building confidence in that pursuit.

Wisconsin Michigan Betting Preview: Outlook & Pick

The Wolverines should be much better prepared for this game as the sportbook favorites at home, and should be a lock to cover the number as long as they can avoid another slow start. Wisconsin has been exposed in consecutive Big Ten losses, and that trend will continue as Michigan looks to avoid losing consecutive games for the first time this season, while moving one step closer to the following weekend’s showdown against Michigan State.
