The Badgers badger their way into this Wednesday night pairing with a 4-5 record that ranks the franchise 4th in the Big Ten. Wisconsin has posted a 1-1 record in conference play this season but will be looking to improve on that as the season rolls on. Additionally, the Badgers are 1-2 in their last three games, so it’s clear that the program has plenty of room for improvement. Nevertheless, the 64-63 upset win over the Penn State Nittany Lions a few days ago has left Wisconsin fans pretty excited about what this team is capable of. If the Badgers can pull off the sportsbook upset this evening, it would mark their second over a Pennsylvania-based program. And while that might not be that likely, it would without a doubt be a thrilling event to watch.
To help pull off the upset in this Wisconsin Badgers vs. Temple Owls matchup, the away team will be turning to none other than junior Ethan Happ. Happ currently leads the program in points as the youngster is putting up 15.4 points, 8.9 rebounds, and 3.0 assists. Happ’s biggest help on the court has to be freshman Brad Davison since Davison is second in points for Wisconsin. The 1st-year Badgers is currently putting up 10.2 points, 1.7 rebounds, and 1.3 assists. Those aren’t the most impressive numbers and both of those players will need to come up big this evening.
The Owls fly into this evening’s contest sporting an eye-raising 4-2 record that gives plenty of promise to this year’s roster. Since the Owls are coming off a 16-16 season, there’s no question that Temple will be striving to finish above the .500 mark once it’s all over. While that may be true, the fact that Temple is 2-2 in their last four games does not play in their favor. Temple will be looking to bounce back from their recent 71-67 loss to the George Washington Colonials that marked Temple’s second loss of the season. If the Owls fail to get the job done this evening, they’ll come one step closer to falling back to that .500 mark.
To help defend the home court this college basketball betting evening, the Owls will be hoping for a strong outing from sophomore Quinton Rose. Rose is averaging 19.0 points, 5.8 rebounds and 2.7 assists per matchup. In addition to Rose’s contribution, the Owls get plenty of help from junior Shizz Alston Jr., who is putting up 16.0 points, 4.3 rebounds and 2.5 assists each time he takes to the floor.
