The Wisconsin Badgers are looking to follow up a huge win on Monday with a big performance at home on Thursday against an Iowa Hawkeyes team that enters on their own four-game win streak.

(stats as of Wednesday morning)

The Badgers and Hawkeyes are making the most of their possessions on offense, with both leading the country in percentage of possessions that do not result in a turnover at 11.9 percent for both teams.

Iowa is the better offense, ranking second in the country in points scored on a per-possession basis, but are scoring 19.5 points per 100 possessions fewer on the road than at home.

The Badgers will also look to exploit an Iowa team that is 228th in the country in defensive rebound rate, allowing opponents to pull in a rebound on 27.9 percent of their missed shots.

The Badgers are 8-5 against the spread this season, with two of the games that did not cover coming in Johnny Davis's absences in their games against Providence and Nicholls State. With Davis having scored at least 20 points in eight of the last nine games he has played in, he will lead the Badgers to another win on Thursday.

Pick: Wisconsin -2
