Why Oregon can cover
Oregon rolled to a blowout win over UCF behind a career-high 21 points and 13 rebounds from sophomore Nate Bittle. The Ducks have won six of their last seven games, with the lone loss coming against UCLA in the semifinals of the Pac-12 Tournament. They were without their top two scorers against UCF, as N'Faly Dante and Jermaine Couisnard were sidelined and are questionable for this game.
Starting point guard Will Richardson is also sidelined after he went down with a hip injury prior to the NIT. Wisconsin has only won consecutive games once since the beginning of January and is 6-13-1 against the spread in its last 20 games. Oregon has won eight of its last nine home games and has covered in four of its last six games.
Why Wisconsin can cover
The Badgers bounced back from a disappointing loss to Ohio State in the Big Ten Tournament with an 81-62 win over Bradley as 3-point favorites to open the NIT. They took the lead on a 3-pointer 10 seconds into the game and never trailed again. Wisconsin added a 75-71 win against No. 2 seed Liberty on Sunday, as Chucky Hepburn poured in a career-high 27 points on 9 of 20 shooting.
Steven Crowl had a career-best 36 points in the win over Bradley, and he scored 14 of the team's first 22 points against Liberty. He leads the team with 12.3 points and 6.8 rebounds per game, while Hepburn (12.2), Connor Essegian (11.8) and Tyler Wahl (11.5) are all in double figures as well. The Badgers have won 10 of their last 12 games against Pac-12 opponents.
