Point Spread Pick:
It’s a big line, but if the Badgers want to get a high seed for the Big Dance they need to win out and win big. The problem is that Indiana has been giving some of the better teams in the Big Ten a battle on their own home courts. Wisconsin only 6-9 against the betting line at home this season.
Take the Indiana Hoosiers +10.
