AJ Storr: Storr was a bright spot for Wisconsin in the loss to Michigan, scoring 20 points on 7-of-14 shooting. The sophomore guard is averaging 16.5 points per game this season and has scored 20-plus points in three of the last four games. 

Rutgers

Wisconsin vs. Rutgers prediction and pick 

Wisconsin will have max motivation on Saturday after losing three straight games, but the Badgers have not been great for backers on the road. Greg Gard's group is just 2-6 ATS on the road this season and 0-4 as a road favorite. 

Wisconsin’s defense needs to bounce back the most and it has a dream matchup to do so against a Rutgers offense that is No. 350 in 3-point shooting, No. 351 in 2-point shooting and No. 358 in effective field goal percentage, according to KenPom

Rutgers is built on its defense and a reason why the under in Scarlet Knights’ games are 16-6 this season. Rutgers is No. 2 overall in defensive efficiency and is No. 2 in the Big 10 in opponent’s field goal percentage (39.9%). Rutgers, the No. 2 defense in KenPom in overall efficiency, is the top team in the Big 10 in defending shots from beyond the arc. Look for another low-scoring rock fight in Piscataway (Rutgers’ home conference games are averaging a point total of 124).

Take the under. 

Pick: UNDER 129.5
