Wisconsin vs Purdue Betting Prediction

Here is our Wisconsin vs Purdue Betting prediction.

The Big Ten semifinals will take place at the Target Center in Minneapolis on Saturday afternoon at one o’clock Eastern Time. No. 5 Wisconsin (21-12, 13-9 B10) will face No. 1 Purdue (29-3, 18-3 B10). The winner will go to the championship game on Sunday, where they will meet the winner of Nebraska’s game against Indiana.

The most recent encounter between these two teams was on March 10, when the Boilermakers won 78-70 despite being a ten-point favorite. Purdue was a two-point favorite at Wisconsin on February 4 and won 75-69. This triumph occurred on the road.

Wisconsin Badgers Betting Prediction

First, we have the Wisconsin vs Purdue Betting prediction for the Badgers.

The Wisconsin Badgers have qualified for the NCAA Tournament, and ESPN’s Joe Lunardi believes they will go as high as a sixth seed. However, if they continue to win, their standing in the competition may improve significantly. The No. 5 Badgers trounced Marland 87-56 in the Big 10 Tournament’s first game on Thursday. Wisconsin faced a more tougher challenge versus Northwestern; nevertheless, St. John’s transfer A.J.

Storr scored a career-high 30 points and six rebounds on 10-of-16 shooting to lead his side to a 70-61 win as a 5-point favorite. In the middle, the Badgers shot 46% from the floor and 45% (10-of-22) from long range, with Steven Crowl adding 19 points and seven rebounds on 8-of-12 shooting. The Badgers also shot 45 percent from long range. They were able to hold the Wildcats to a 38% field goal percentage despite Northwestern’s guard Boo Buie scoring 29 points.

The Badgers did not perform well in the last stretch of the season, as they lost three of their last four games. If they had lost against Maryland, they might have received a double-digit seed. Storr, who has a career average of 16.2 points and 3.7 rebounds while shooting 43.5% from the field (31.4% from three), has been a key player to the team’s recent success. Forward Tyler Wahl has averaged 11.7 points and 5.9 rebounds in two tournament games. However, he has only averaged 4.0 points and 0 rebounds in both games. One of the newcomers is John Blackwell, a 6-4 guard who averages 8.5 points per game. He also shoots 48.1% from beyond the three-point arc and has averaged 14 points per game over his previous four outings.

Despite their strong performance in the two tournament games, Wisconsin’s defense has allowed 69.8 points on 46.1% shooting (320th) and 37.3% from deep range (351st) this season. They have a strong shooting team, averaging 46.2% from the field and 33.9% from long range this season.

Purdue Boilermakers Betting Prediction

Now we have the Wisconsin vs Purdue Betting prediction for the Bulls.

Despite the fact that the Boilermakers have won six games in a row, this is not unusual for them at this stage of the season. Although Purdue, ranked third, may win the next two games, it will make no difference. The NCAA Tournament and reaching the Final Four are the most crucial goals for a team with a 7-4 center who has won back-to-back Big 10 Player of the Year honors and a plethora of shooters around him. The majority of the players are returning from a team that competed in the NCAA Tournament but was ousted by Fairleigh Dickinson in round one.

They now have the opportunity not only to win the Big 10 regular season and conference tournament in consecutive years, but also to avenge their defeat. 24 years earlier, Michigan State University did the same thing and went on to win the championship. After losing to UMBC, the No. 1 seed, Virginia went on to win the championship the next year. The Boilermakers are in a situation where it is now or never since Zach Edey will be entering the NBA for the upcoming season. Edey scored 29 points and grabbed 12 rebounds in the game against Michigan State on Friday, leading the Boilermakers to victory. The final score was 67–62.

Following the game, head coach Matt Painter told the Associated Press, “As long as we continue to guard and take care of the basketball, we are going to give ourselves a chance.”

In addition to shooting 61.9% from the field and 71.8% from the free throw line, Edey leads the Boilermakers in scoring (24.2 points per game, 11.7 rebounds, 2.2 blocks). After suffering a calf injury on Friday, guard Braden Smith has healed and is now contributing 13.0 points to the team’s total while shooting 44.6% from beyond the arc. KenPom currently ranks the Boilermakers third overall, first in adjusted offensive efficiency, and twenty-first in adjusted defensive efficiency.

This offense is fairly good, ranking 11th in scoring (84.2 points per game), 16th in field goal percentage (49.1%), and second in three-point shooting (41.1%) in the NBA. They only shoot 41.9% from the field and 32% from long range, despite allowing 70.2 points per game. The club boasts a rebound rate of 57.9%, ranking them second among the best rebounding teams in the country.

Wisconsin vs Purdue Betting Pick

Although Purdue won both games, the margin of victory was a combined 14 points. Nobody will be able to entirely stop Edey, but Crowl is not a little team with a record of 7-0 and 247, especially when you add a player like Tyler Wahl, who has a record of 6-9 and 225 and can help double team. Storr, who stands 6 feet 7 inches tall and weighs 205 pounds, is also an issue. Because of him, the Badgers can have a dynamic wing that they would not otherwise have. He had a fantastic performance against Northwestern on Friday, and he scored 17 points in his most recent game, which was away from home against Purdue. At the moment, the Badgers are playing incredibly well and with great confidence. What does it matter if the Boilermakers lose this game? The following step is the most critical. Braden Smith, who is regarded a questionable choice for this match, is your second-best player, and if you want to win the big one, you may want to leave him out of the roster.
