Buckeyes Looking to Make it Two in a Row

The Buckeyes started the month of February a little snake bitten. The Buckeyes lost at Iowa by two points and at home to Indiana by three. Both games could have been wins for Ohio State. That made the four point win over Maryland even more important on Saturday.

On the season, Ohio State is scoring 75.3 points per game. The offense has not been great, and neither has the defense. That accounts for why the Buckeyes are near the bottom of the Big Ten standings. The top scorer for Ohio State has been Bruce Thornton, with 15.8 points per game.

Ohio State will go back home after this, but things will get no easier. They will play host to Purdue. After that, they are on the road for two more games. The Buckeyes are at Minnesota and then at Michigan State. The final February game for Ohio State is at home against Nebraska.

Badgers Want to Stop the Bleeding

The month of February has not been kind to Greg Gard and his Wisconsin Badgers. They have four straight losses, with the first three coming by an average of 6 points per game. The 22 point blowout loss at Rutgers is obviously a major cause of concern.

Wisconsin has three guys scoring double digits per game. AJ Storr is the top scorer with just over 16 per game. Tyler Wahl is second at 11.5 per game. The other for the Badgers is Steven Crawl, who is at 10.7. The Badgers are 171th in College Basketball, scoring 74.3 points per game.

The Badgers go on the road to Iowa after this game. The Badgers then head back home and host Maryland on February 20th, before heading back on the road to Indiana to finish the month. Wisconsin starts March at home against Illinois.

Road Upset in the Big Ten

The Wisconsin Badgers are struggling big time right now. If they are not careful, they are going to go from one of the top four seed in the NCAA Tournament to finding their way out of the big dance. Wisconsin just cannot find a groove, and we look for that to continue here.

The Badgers drop their fifth straight game, as Ohio State keeps their momentum going. Take the underdog in this game. We like Ohio State. Bet the Buckeyes +8.5 over the Badgers on Tuesday!
