If you sort strictly by this year's data, Marquette is favored to beat Baylor (-1.5), Wisconsin (-4), and at Notre Dame (-9).

Would love to be wrong but thinking a 15 or so point loss to Baylor and a 5 or so point loss to Wisconsin.

Our pressure caused problems for Purdue in that it took them time to get into their offense and get comfortable looks.

Baylor's 3 best players are Flagler, Cryer, George.  3 guards and they can all light it up from 3 levels.  George may just best player we run into all season. They have the athletes to handle the pressure and the shooting to beat the pressure. A win isn't even in the realm of possibilites in my eyes.

I have a touch more hope against UW, but I need to see it to believe it.

For some reason I thought the game was at Baylor. I’ll say 10 point loss tomorrow with it at home.

Vegas would lose an awful lot of $ on those lines!

I have no idea how the games will work out, but I'm  gonna go all contrarian and say we beat Baylor and lose to Wisconsin.  There is some logic...we've struggled with slower teams, haven't  really played a fast team, but I feel Shaka's scheme works best when MU can go full speed.

The Field of 68 gambling podcast talked about taking advantage of Vegas by looking for large disparities between the raw 2022-23 data and the Vegas lines. There's a lot of baked in data from past years driving lines, especially at this point of the year.

Love it. That was such a thrashing that a loss to UW would be a back breaker, but I'll temper expectations for now.

I have more confidence that we can actually win against a good team, but Saturday will be a different challenge. The possessions will be limited with UW's pace.  New challenge, different challenge, excited to see how the attack it and try to WIN THE DAY.

After we beat the No. 6 team in the country by 1,000 points, it's comforting to the rest of the board that you have "confidence that we can actually win against a good team."

The Shaka Marquette Warriors set the tempo. MU wins by 10+ on Saturday.

Yeah, Goose ... the unbeatable Madisonians just lost at home to Wake Forest, giving up 78 in the process. There's nothing wrong with Wake; they look like they have a pretty good team this season, but unbeatable teams don't lose like that at home.

GE03 keeps saying they always find a way to win ... except when they don't. Last season, they practically had a paved road to the Final Four but they couldn't even score 50 against Iowa State. Hell, they weren't even able to find a way to a winning record against Wojo!

I'm with you -- we win Saturday for sure.

I agree with this Goose, MU will set and force the tempo against both Wisconsin and ND.  Both are as beatable as they will ever be and we may be as good and deep as we have been in some time.  Looking forward to both games.

I hope so!

When all else fails that's usually what UW is best at.  Their offensive numbers are horrible, like absolutely atrocious, but they are in every game.

I look forward to our defense just causing absolute chaos.

Nice to take one for the team but tempo wasn't really an issue today.

Unless I'm reading Kenpom wrong, we lost both Purdue and MSU in 66 possession games.  Today we lost in an OT 69 possession game.  We did win (BIG!) against Baylor in a 69 possession regulation game (our slowest win of the year).

I lose track.  Is this good news or bad news to you and did you predict it?
Luke 6:45   ...A good man produces goodness from the good in his heart; an evil man produces evil out of his store of evil.   Each man speaks from his heart's abundance...

It is better to be fearless and cheerful than cheerless and fearful.
