Big Ten Tourney to Turn on the Power This Week with Loaded Lineup

2021 Big Ten Men’s Basketball Tournament Odds and Picks

Gamblers looking for multiple-choice questions will love the Big Ten Tournament.  Cause by there being several teams that could emerge victoriously.  Regular-season champion Michigan will be the March Madness betting favorite.  However, that hardly ensures an easy path to the top.  Illinois, Iowa, and Purdue were right behind the Wolverines.  While Purdue, Ohio State, and Wisconsin can beat anyone on a given day.  Desperate teams like Rutgers and Maryland need a deep run for Big Dance consideration.  This makes them potentially dangerous programs with hidden value.  Therefore, a challenging handicap beckons this week.

Michigan Rolls to Dominant Regular Season Title

Overall, the Wolverines finished 19-2 straight up, 16-5 against the spread, and 8-13 under the total.  The M Men got the money in seven of their last nine games.  Balance is the sportsbook odds strength of coach Juwan Howard’s team.  Out of 350 teams, Michigan ranks 54th for scoring and 50th for points allowed.  UM ranks 10th best in the land for 3-point shooting.

Center Hunter Dickinson leads the Wolverines with 14.4 points and 7.8 rebounds per game.  And then, forward Isaiah Livers adds 13.9 points and 6.2 rebounds per outing.  Guard Franz Wagner brings 13 points and 6.3 rebounds per contest.

Fighting Illini Rides Momentum and Value to Indy

Late on, the Fighting Illini have covered five of their last six.  Four of those six games went over the total.  Coach Brad Underwood built an offense that is a

2021 March Madness Betting asset.  To show, the Fighting Illini ranks 18th in the nation for scoring.  Illinois ranks 9th for both field goal percentage and offensive rebounds.  The Fighting Illini are 20-6 straight up, 16-9-1 against the spread, and 14-11 over the total.

Namely, guard Ayo Dosunmu leads Illinois with 20.9 points, 6.2 rebounds, and 5.2 assists per game.  Center Kofi Cockburn follows with 17.3 points and 9.6 rebounds per contest.

Hawkeyes Bring Best Player to be Seen on the Court This Week!

Offensively there are few teams as productive or entertaining as the Iowa Hawkeyes.  And that is certainly the case this season.  Iowa ranks third out of 350 teams for scoring.  Of major concern is a defense ranked 227th for points allowed.  That lack of stop power could kill coach Fran McCaffery’s team from bet on NCAA basketball success.  Iowa finished 19-7 straight up, 15-11 against the spread, and 13-13 vs. totals.  Late on, Iowa has covered five of their last seven.  Seven of their previous eight went under the total.

Center Luka Garza is Iowa’s all-time leading scorer and a candidate for numerous national awards and honors.  Consider that Garza is averaging 24.3 points and 8.4 rebounds per game.  Guard Joe Wieskamp adds 15.1 points and 6.8 rebounds per contest.

Profits Boiling for Purdue Backers

On the whole, Purdue is one of the hottest teams on the board for 2021 March Madness Betting.  The Boilermakers have covered five of their last six.  Now, Purdue is 18-8 straight up, 14-10-2 against the spread, and 13-13 over/under.  Coach Matt Painter’s defense ranks 57th of 350 teams for points allowed.

Ohio State Fails to Make Bucks Down the Stretch

On the whole, Ohio State is 18-8 straight up, 14-11-1 vs. the odds, and 14-11 over the total.  But the Buckeyes have paid only one of their last five games.  Forward EJ Liddell and guard Duane Washington Jr are both over 15 points per game.

Badgers Limp Home in the Red

Late on, Wisconsin has covered only one of their last five games.  An offense ranked 220th in the nation has been a drag.  UW does rank 36th for points allowed.  It is that defense that no team wants to deal with in the postseason.
