Wisconsin Has Lucky Number 7 vs Irish

Wisconsin will have history on their side when they look to continue their improbable run in the NCAA Tournament against Notre Dame Friday. The No. 6 and No. 7 seeds have only faced off on three occasions in our databases, with the seventh ranked team going a perfect 3-0 SU and ATS in those contests.

Shark Bites
  • Notre Dame is 4-1 ATS in their past five games against the Big Ten.
  • Wisconsin is 10-2 SU and ATS in their past 12 games against teams with winning records.
  • Wisconsin is 6-2 ATS in the Sweet 16 since 2000.

The Badgers could easily have been knocked out the madness with both of their wins being decided by shots made (or not made) within the final six seconds of their games. Wisconsin’s defense has put the team in positions to win those games late though, as they have held opponents to 53 points per game and 39.1 percent shooting through the NCAA Tournament so far.

It will be interesting to see how the Badgers handle the offense of Notre Dame, as the Fighting Irish love to stretch the floor with multiple options and let Demetrius Jackson attack the rim. The Irish were critically close to not making it to the Sweet 16, but scored the final six points to beat Stephen F. Austin in their last game.
