Pick: Purdue -9.5 (-110)

Two Big Ten teams with two very different things on the line. Heading into Sunday afternoon will face off here in this one. As Wisconsin comes into this game sitting on the bubble chasing their 20th victory of the season against a Purdue team that is looking to lock down the number one overall seed in the NCAA tournament. This should be a solid finale to the regular season for both of these teams and this should be one of the better games of the Big Ten conference season as well. As the Wisconsin Badgers take on the Purdue Boilermakers in West Lafayette, Indiana to wrap up the regular season. 

Wisconsin comes into this game sitting firmly on the bubble with 19 victories through their first 30 games of the regular season. They have put together solid numbers inside of conference play in what many consider to be one of the best conferences in college basketball this season. They come into this game needing a huge résumé boosting victory, and they have the opportunity to get one here on Sunday afternoon on the road against Purdue. This would be a perfect way to hit that magic number 20 and head into the Big Ten conference tournament with improved chances of making the NCAA tournament as an at-large bid.

A victory in this game could also give this team the confidence to make a run, and win the Big Ten conference tournament and grab the automatic bid instead. Wisconsin comes into this game tied for fourth place in the conference standings in a victory in this one would propel them to a double bye in the opening two rounds of the conference tournament. That would make it even easier for them to grab the automatic bid and get themselves into the NCAA tournament this season. They are coming off of a victory in their previous game and they will look for a second consecutive win here on Sunday afternoon in West Lafayette.

Purdue has been one of the best teams in the country all season long, and they have spent a significant amount of time as the number one team in the rankings. They head into this year’s tournament season with a sour taste in their mouth after their upset loss in the opening round of the NCAA tournament last year. It is likely something that has been on their mind throughout the off-season, and the entirety of this season as well, as they look to get back to the NCAA tournament and make up for their sins. If they have a strong finish to the regular season in this game and a nice performance in the conference tournament, they will likely get the number one overall seed in the tournament as well. 

They have arguably, had the best player in the country this season in Zach Edey and he will lead the Boilermakers to a long awaited national championship. But first, they will look to close out the regular season with a victory over Wisconsin as they look to wrap up the year with a victory after already claiming the regular season conference title. They will get some rest before playing their first game of the conference tournament. It will be much needed rest for a Purdue team that has already locked up their bid to the NCAA tournament. Regardless of what transpires in the conference tournament it seems very likely that Purdue will grab yet another number one seed as well.

Betting trends to consider in this matchup:

- Purdue is 15-0 at home 

- Wisconsin is 2-4 against ranked opponents 

- Wisconsin is 3-8 on the road 

I look for this regular season finale to potentially come down to the wire here in West Lafayette on Sunday. In the end, however, I look for the Purdue Boilermakers to grab the victory over the Wisconsin Badgers to wrap up the regular season at home. Although I expect this game to be close heading into the final minutes I do look for Purdue to pull away just enough to cover the spread in this game as well.
