NCAAM Betting : Seeding Ramifications
The true race for chair when the music stops at the end of the Big Ten season is for fourth place. Any team in that slot or above gets a double bye for the conference tournament. A whole flood of scenarios makes it difficult to forecast but without a win, Purdue can easily find themselves playing an extra game next week. Not an enviable task for a team that could win the tournament title. Here we have the Boilermakers with good height especially with an over seven footer coming off the bench. Only the one guard under six foot is exploitable for any sort of post up game. Purdue must clean the glass well not only to win at home but cover the -6 given to them by the linesmakers.
How good has Wisconsin been in their 11-1 Big Ten run? Experts have crunched the Ken Pom for that period of time and this is what they got.
- Efficiency on Offense : 117.1
- In Defense : 91.2
- Differential is 25.9
This would be the third highest rank in the nation behind only Kansas and Michigan State. It is not that the Badgers played the scrubs. Maryland, Iowa, Michigan State, and other Big Ten powers were in this stretch. With momentum being this strong, the trend is too potent to ignore.
Easiest play of the weekend is right before your eyes. A very hot team playing this efficient is not going to just collapse because Purdue is a tough place to play for them. This and they get plus six points puts a bow on this gift from the linesmakers. HRWager’s NCAAM Free Pick of the Weekend is Wisconsin plus the points. Tune in at 7:30 PM on the 6th for this bankroll bonanza.
