Betting on Wisconsin Badgers Basketball

The Badgers have been consistent winners since their first year of play in 1898. And betting on Wisconsin Badgers basketball is all about consistency in recent years. The team has made it to the March Madness postseason tournament from 2000 through 2014, claiming 2 Big Ten Tournament Championships in 2004 and 2008. The team has also won the Big Ten regular season title in 2002, 2003 and 2008 heading into the 2014 - 15 season.

The Badgers Make the NCAA Tourney Each Year From 1999 to 2014

The Wisconsin Badgers men's basketball team has been successful many times in their more than 115 year history. But no NCAA Division I school can expect to make the March Madness Tournament every year. Or can they? Basketball bettors love when they find a statistic they can depend on. Well how about this? In 1999, the Badgers made it to the NCAA postseason tournament. They had missed the previous season, and only enjoyed March Madness 4 times in 58 years to that point.

But in the year 2000 current head coach Bo Ryan was hired away from the University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee. The University of Wisconsin Badgers men's basketball team responded by starting a 15 year consecutive postseason appearance in the NCAA tournament. Heading into the 2014 season the team is ranked in the Top 4 in both the AP Top 25 and USA Today Coaches Poll. So it appears that the Badgers will once again make March Madness in 2015, giving basketball bettors a solid favorite to bank on each week.
