Action Report: Public split on Kentucky-Wisconsin


USA Today Sports

After a thrilling one point contest in last year’s NCAA Tournament, bettors have been torn between the Kentucky Wildcats and Wisconsin Badgers this year.

“Kentucky -5 opened at -107 and are now even, making this market the only thing that’s gone against them all year,” a spokesperson from Pinnacle Sports says. “That suggests there might be some big or sharp money that likes this to be a close game.”

50.6 percent of spread action is backing Wisconsin with 52.9 percent of the moneyline on Kentucky per Pinnacle.

The -5 point spread is the smallest Kentucky has faced all-season long with the Wildcats only favored by single-digits in six of their 38 games so far this season. 

“Defending champs opened as a 5-point favorite & earlier this morning we got sharp bet on Wisconsin so we moved the Badgers to +4.5,” says Mike Jerome of “This game will be an extremely small decision for the shop, as 52 percent of bets and 51 percent of cash are backing Wisconsin.”
