March Madness betting fans have come to respect the consistent performance of Wisconsin year in and year out with the March Madness betting line. Wisconsin had a March Madness betting record of 21-7 straight up and 15-11 against the spread and was in fourth place in the Big Ten Conference race.
As is always the case with the Badgers, their main strength with the March Madness betting line will be their defense that was ranked a phenomenal 5th best in the entire country for points allowed. The Badgers offense will not be much of a March Madness bet asset, however, as it ranked 210th overall for team scoring.
In conference play, Wisconsin’s most impressive March Madness betting credential was a 67-49 blowout win over leading contender Michigan State on February 2. They also beat another top Big Ten contender, Ohio State, by a score of 55-43 on New Year’s Eve.
But the ultimate March Madness betting win for Wisconsin this year came in the preseason when they defeated ACC leading Duke 73-69 as 4.5-point home dogs. Those wins give the Badgers a strong March Madness betting resume that demonstrates that they are a threat against anyone that they line up against.
Wisconsin may also be one of the top over/under March Madness betting propositions on the board this spring. The slow and plodding offense combined with the air tight defense gave Wisconsin a March Madness betting mark of 16 games going under the total out of 25 that were lined on the board.
Wisconsin was playing its best basketball of the season heading into the March Madness betting stretch run as from January 28 through February 25 they were 5-3 against the spread.
While Wisconsin will never be considered a flashy or exciting team they bring their best effort to the floor every game and are a tough underdog as evidenced by their profitable 4-3 mark against the spread when getting points this year.
