Bet $4 On Wisconsin, Win $256 If They Beat North Carolina

With DraftKings’ 64/1 Underdog odds boost for all new users, hitting it big on March Madness has never been easier. You can try your luck on a massive longshot, like No. 16 Drexel to upset No. 1 Illinois or 15th-seeded Cleveland State to knock off No. 2 Houston.

Your other option, and probably the most effective way to go about it, is to pick a No. 9 seed, like Wisconsin, with a great chance of bouncing No. 8 UNC and giving you $256 to pad your bankroll.

The Badgers finished the regular season with a 17-12 record and went 10-10 in the Big 10. D’Mitrik Trice, Micah Potter and Brad Davison led the way for Wisconsin. Trice is the team’s leading scorer, averaging 13.7 points per game while Potter has scored 12.8 in just 21.9 minutes per night.

Davidson has been the heart and soul, with guys like Trevor Anderson and Jonathan Davis providing valuable minutes off the bench.

Wisconsin has limped into the 2021 NCAA Basketball Tournament. They’ve lost four of their last five games, but all four losses have come against ranked teams, including No. 3 Illinois and two times against No. 5 Iowa.

As for North Carolina, the Tar Heels are coming off a somewhat down season in the ACC. With Duke not competitive this year and teams like Miami Pitt and Notre Dame at the bottom of the conference standings, making it out of the ACC is not the same badge of honor we’re used to.

Armando Bacot is UNC’s leading scorer with 12.2 points per game and 8.0 boards per contest. It’ll be great to see Bacot and Potter go head-to-head, but I like the supporting cast of the Badgers.

According to KenPom, Wisconsin is the 10th best team in the country in AdjEM and have been one of the unluckiest squads in the entire NCAA. KenPom has them rated higher than 3-seeds like Kansas and Arkansas, even though the committee put them in as a 9. UNC is farther down the list as KenPom’s 28th ranked team. Not only is Wisconsin the better team, it shouldn’t even be that close and DraftKings is letting you turn $4 into $256 when they win.
