The Coach's Afternoon CBS BIG TICKET! (Wisc/Ohio St)
(NCAAB) Wisconsin vs. Ohio State, 03/08/2015 12:30 PM, Score: 72 - 48
Point Spread: 2.00 | -107.00 Ohio State (Home)
Result: Loss
The #6 ranked Wisconsin Badgers will come into Columbus on Sunday to close the regular season against Big-10 rivals Ohio State. The Buckeyes are ranked #23 in the nation, and they are a slight dog in their final home game here. Both teams have played well lately, but I think OSU is going to want this game more.

Here are my keys to the game:

1. Situational/Motivational - The Badgers have already clinched first place in the conference, and really don't have a lot to prove here. "We still have a shot at a (No. 1) seed. I know seeding doesn't really matter that much, but you'd still like to be the highest you possibly can be, so why not try to win games?" said Josh Gasser. The Wisconsin guard's comments don't sound all that convincing.

2. Home Cookn' - The Buckeyes are 17-1 at home, and they've won four of their last five home meetings versus Wisconsin. They've also won both their previous home games against ranked opponents by double-digits.

3. X-Factor - The Buckeyes are 6-1 ATS in their last 7 home games, while the Badgers have failed to cover in four of their last five overall.

Selection: This is a play on the Ohio State Buckeyes (8*)
