Wisconsin Badgers vs. Michigan Wolverines NCAA Basketball Betting Odds, Picks and Preview

January 12th, 2021 NCAA Basketball, Sportsbook

Tuesday’s game of the night comes from the Big Ten Conference. Michigan has become one of the hottest teams with the College Basketball odds. Second-year coach Juwan Howard has shown the Midas Touch for his alma mater. Players respond to Howard and play a hard and full-court game. So too is Wisconsin a complete team. Namely, Greg Gard is a coach that always brings defense. This year UW has the added element of deadly 3-point shooting. Few coaches get more out of less than Gard. By contrast, Michigan always has good material. But Howard maximizes it.
