Wisconsin vs. Colgate Player Prop: Can Jack Ferguson Help Keep the Game Close Against the Badgers?

Colgate vs Wisconsin is set to be one of the more unique matchups of the first round, with a Colgate team coming in red hot. Last year, Colgate was a trendy first-round upset pick, and despite a red hot start, they were not able to stick around and ended up melting down. The Raiders are currently on a 14-game winning streak, with six of their last eight wins coming by double-digits, despite being a 14 seed, there in the fight here.

Wisconsin most likely has the best player in this game with Johnny Davis, a 6'5 sophomore, who is the team leader with 19.7 points and 8.2 rebounds per game. Wisconsin is definitely the more well-rounded team here, but with Colgate's offensive upside, I think the spread is larger here. I'm not sure Colgate will be able to close this game out, but I do believe they will keep it close enough to make +8 a good bet.

Jack Ferguson o12.5 Points -130 (Bet $130 to Win $100)

Senior guard Jack Ferguson led for the Raiders in the conference tournament averaging 20.6 PPG throughout. While he averages 12.6 points on the season, the guard heavily contributed to Colgate's easy run through their conference tournament, scoring 28, 17, and 17 points. 

Colgate has multiple guys who can score the basketball, and they plan on spreading it out as much as possible. That being said, they are playing against a formidable offense led by Johnny Davis, and they are gonna need to rely on their competent scorers. While Nelly Cummings is this team's leading scorer, he's gonna have a tougher inside matchup than Ferguson who takes more outside shots. Ferguson caught fire in the conference tournament, and I expect him to continue that success today.
