What to Know

The Wisconsin Badgers will take on the Illinois Fighting Illini at 9 p.m. ET on Wednesday at Kohl Center. Each game has meant fewer and fewer points for Wisconsin in their past three games, so Illinois might be catching them at a good time.

Wisconsin narrowly escaped with a win as the squad sidled past the Ohio State Buckeyes 61-57. The top scorer for the Badgers was F Nate Reuvers (17 points).

Meanwhile, Illinois took their matchup against the Purdue Boilermakers on Sunday by a conclusive 63-37 score. Illinois' G Alan Griffin was one of the most active players for the team as he posted a double-double on 16 points and 12 rebounds.

Wisconsin is the favorite in this one, with an expected 4.5-point margin of victory. They are currently four-for-four against the spread in their most recent games, a trend bettors might want to take into account.

Their wins bumped the Badgers to 9-5 and the Fighting Illini to 10-5. We'll see which team can carry over their success and which team inevitably falls when the Badgers and the Fighting Illini clash.
