Betting The Total: 139.0 Points

Michigan State vs Wisconsin Total Odds

  • OVER 139.0 -110
  • UNDER 139.0 -110

Wisconsin has the 256th-best field goal percentage as a team as well as the 235th-fastest tempo which may very well lead this game towards the UNDER. There may simply be too few possessions and too low efficiency for this game to reach 140 or more points.
