The George Mason Patriots have two road wins over power conference teams already this season and will look to make it three on Thursday against Wisconsin.

George Mason Patriots vs. Wisconsin Badgers (-11.5, 130)

(stats as of Wednesday morning)

The Patriots success has been due in large part to not allowing second chance with opponents getting a rebound on just 19 percent of misses, which ranks 11th among Division I teams.

The Badgers are also have a tough time making outside shots, ranking 295th in 3-point shooting percentage at 29.6 percent, while playing lots of isolation, ranking 335th in percentage of made field goals that involve an assist.

George Mason has embraced the 3-point shot with 48.1 percent of their shots coming from 3-point range, the 13th-highest rate in the country, and are shooting better from distance on the road than at home, making 36.4 percent of their 3’s on the road and 35.6 percent at home.

With Wisconsin making just 40.2 percent of their shots, which is 288th in the country, and ranking 187th in rebound rate, George Mason will have the Badgers getting more than they bargained for on Thursday.

Pick: George Mason + 11.5
