The No. 13 Wisconsin Badgers are set to face off against the Minnesota Golden Gophers, looking to generate some buzz on the road after beating the Indiana Hoosiers 91-79 over the weekend at the Kohl Center.
With the win over Indiana, the Badgers stand at a 14-4 record, which they’ll look to improve on Tuesday when they visit Minnesota, with tipoff set for 6:00 P.M. CT.
Minnesota, standing at 12-6, is coming off a 76-66 loss to the Michigan State Spartans over the weekend.
The Gophers have scored 77.2 points a game, shooting 48 percent from the field and 33.7 percent from three.
In Wednesday’s game, the Badgers are seen as 3.5-point favorites, with the over/under set at 139 points.
The Badgers will be without point guard Kamari McGee, who suffered a lower-body injury against Indiana and was seen in a walking boot on his right foot.
With Minnesota having the capability to go and off and score as a streakier team offensively, combined with Wisconsin’s recent stretch of elite efficiency, I’ll take the over here at 139.
Prediction: Over 139 total points
