(5) Wisconsin vs. (12) James Madison: Betting Tips, Prediction, and Betting Odds

As the five seed Wisconsin gets a tough draw here against James Madison who has lost just three games all season. Wisconsin also had some luck on their side getting a five seed with 13 losses on the season. This game has just a five and a half point spread. It should be a close one and people should not be sleeping on James Madison here.

To open up the season James Madison made sure to let everyone know that they meant business this year. In their season opener they played Michigan State, who was ranked as the No. 4 team in the country. James Madison secured the upset to beat Michigan State who just won their first game in the tournament. The rest of the season they lost just three games including winning their last 13 games.

For Wisconsin, this team was ranked as high as No. 6 in the nation. Now, they dropped all the way out of the top 25 but still were able to get a five seed in the tournament. Wisconsin was pretty bad in conference play as they lost nine games against BIG 10 opponents. They did make it all the way to the BIG 10 finals, which likely helped them get this high of a seed in the end.

James Madison Point Spread

James Madison +5.5 is available at the time of publishing. Playable at that number.

James Madison is the real deal. Losing just three games in any conference is extremely impressive. They should not be taken lightly by Wisconsin who has lost 13 games this year, albeit in a much tougher conference. This line is close at just 5.5 points. Wisconsin ran hot in the BIG 10 Tournament but they struggled before that. The tournament is about being hot but James Madison has been running hot all season.

For Wisconsin, beating Purdue makes them a contender as Purdue is a one seed and has been a top team all year. James Madison has an elite offense and should be able to stay with Wisconsin in this game, however.

(5) Wisconsin vs. (12) James Madison Total Points Over 145.5

Over 145.5 Total Points is available at the time of publishing. Playable at that number.

Any James Madison game should be live to go over this total. They are 9th in the nation in scoring at 84.4 points per game. In just 11 games this year James Madison has scored under 80 points. If they put up even close to 80 in this game the total will likely smash over in what should be a close contest.

Wisconsin has proved they can score the ball as well. Defense is what it may come down to in this one and who can get a stop. I expect this to be a high-scoring game. In their last 10 games they have scored at least 70 points, including scoring 87 points in the BIG 10 Championship and 76 points the game before that to defeat Purdue.
