Why Bet The Wisconsin Badgers Odds at -2

Eighth-seeded Wisconsin (27-9 SU, 17-16 ATS) has won five of six and pulled off the biggest upset of the 2017 NCAA Tournament by stunning the top-seeded Villanova Wildcats 65-62 on Saturday to cash in as a 5.5-point underdog.Wisconsin shot a blistering 53.1 percent from the field in the win while getting a team-high 19 points from forward Nigel Hayes while placing three other players in double figures in scoring. Wisconsin has beaten Vermont and got past top-seeded Villanova 65-62 on Saturday.

Why Bet The Florida Gators Odds at -2

The Gators (26-8 SU, 19-13 ATS) pounded East Tennessee by 15 points in their opener and upset Virginia in the Round of 32 while holding the Cavaliers to a jaw-dropping 39 points. Florida got a team-high 14 points and 11 rebounds from Devin Robinson in the win to improve to 7-3 SU over their last 10 games.

Expert Pick & Final Score Prediction

Florida holds the edge in this matchup in scoring, free throw shooting percentage and bench play, but but right now, I’m thinking the Gators are in trouble against a Wisconsin team that has plenty of experience and three players that play as well together as any trio in the nation in forwards Nigel Hayes and Ethan Happ and guard Bronson Koenig.Wisconsin is the better team when it comes to shooting the ball, defense, rebounding and turnovers and I believe having the upper hand in those crucial categories will be what decides the outcome of this contest.The Gators are a modest 3-3 SU over their last six games and 1-4 ATS in their last five games following an ATS win while Wisconsin has won four of their last five while going 7-1 ATS in their last eight non-conference games, 5-1 ATS in their last six games overall and 4-1 ATS in their last five NCAA Tournament games. Simply put, I say, go with the narrow 51 percent of public bettors that like the Badgers to get the upset as slight underdogs.

My final score prediction is Wisconsin 69 Florida 66
