College Basketball Betting: Wisconsin exposed on both ends of the floor

Bettors have grown to expect the ultimate in offensive efficiency when it comes to Wisconsin basketball. Last season, they ranked No. 1 in the country at an incredible 1.27 points per possession and 4th in 2014 at 1.20. This season, following the departure of a wealth of offensive talent, the Badgers have dropped off significantly. The numbers still look solid (1.11 ppp) but in games against Georgetown and Oklahoma, Wisky really struggled. The Hoyas held the Badgers to 19-of-63 from the floor and it was even worse against the Sooners (16-of-68). Tonight is another tall task with a trip to Syracuse. Note also that Wisconsin's defense has been exposed having allowed an incredible 45% from three. In typical Bo Ryan fashion, the theme heading into tonight’s game is make the extra pass and guard someone.

“We haven’t quite evolved offensively to make an extra pass, to make an extra two passes yet this year. We’re still not to the point where we share the ball well enough, where we read defenses well enough, where we know when to turn down an average shot for a better shot or a good shot for a great shot.

“We miss guys around the rim at times when we take contested shots from the perimeter, we miss guys in the post. We haven’t been big enough and physical enough in the post, in terms of demanding the ball. It’s not one specific thing, but I think as we continue to hopefully mature that we’ll get better at some of these things and start to read and understand the offense as a whole a little bit better.”
