Michigan vs. Wisconsin: Predictions, Picks, Basketball Match Odds, Spread, Live Stream, Watch Online, TV Channel
There will be significant implications for Michigan and Wisconsin on Sunday, when the Wolverines travel to face the No. 15 Badgers at 1 p.m. ET on CBS. It’s a game with league title implications for the Badgers (20-5, 11-4) who are vying for position with several other Big Ten teams for the regular season title and an advantageous seed in what appears to be a wild conference tournament.
But for the Wolverines (14-10, 8-6), this game and the last five that follow to close the regular season come down to survival. After starting the season ranked No. 6 in the AP Top 25, Michigan is in the NCAA Tournament bubble and needs to finish strong. Winning in Wisconsin would be a big win, but it won’t be easy.
The Badgers, led by star guard Johnny Davis and canny veteran Brad Davison, have one of the best backyards in the conference. Davis is coming off 30 points in a 74-69 win over Indiana on Tuesday. Michigan retaliates with a big front yard led by Hunter Dickinson, who will test the Wisconsin bigs. It’s the only scheduled game between the teams this season, and Wisconsin will be out for revenge after losing both games last season.

Michigan showed what it’s capable of in an 82-58 win over Purdue last week and also picked up an impressive win at Iowa on Thursday. But the same team fell short of 60 points at home last Saturday against Ohio State, and it’s hard to trust the best version of Michigan to make an appearance here in a tight spot. Wisconsin is also better rested, having been out since Tuesday. The Wolverines will play their second game on the road in three days.Prediction: Wisconsin 69, Michigan 62
