What you need to know about Colgate  

Colgate is not an average No. 14 seed. The Raiders have the second-best 3-point shooting percentage in college basketball and are riding a 15-game winning streak. They have the offense to match Wisconsin and are one of the most experienced teams in the country. 

The Badgers have struggled with scoring droughts at times this season, including consecutive losses to Nebraska and Michigan State last week. They are No. 291 in 3-point percentage, so they will not be able to match Colgate if the Raiders get hot. Colgate has covered the spread in five of its last six games in the month of March.

What you need to know about Wisconsin

There is value on Wisconsin's spread after its two-game skid. The Badgers have been responding to adversity all season, which starts with fifth-year senior guard Brad Davison. He is one of the oldest players in college basketball and is exactly the type of player that excels in the NCAA Tournament.

Johnny Davis is one of the top scorers in the country, giving Wisconsin an explosiveness that Colgate does not possess. The Badgers will also have a height advantage over a Colgate team that has struggled with offensive rebounding. The Raiders have lost nine straight games against Big Ten opponents.
