Sweet 16: Butler (8) vs. Wisconsin (4)

Southwest Region: Butler Bulldogs (8) vs. Wisconsin Badgers (4) Thurs. March 24, 2011 9:57 p.m. EST

Every single year during March Madness there are one or two teams that just defy the odds with every single game and make it deeper in the NCAA Tournament than anyone could have anticipated. This season that one team to pull off the biggest upsets consecutively has been the VCU Rams (11), but the team that has been able to shock the world two years in a row has been the Butler Bulldogs (8) as they upset the Pittsburgh Panthers in the third round.

Having advanced to the Sweet 16 in two consecutive seasons, the consensus is that teams probably won’t underestimate this team moving forward as Butler isn’t going to surprise anyone anymore. With that being said, things will get really interesting this Thursday night when the Butler Bulldogs (8) take on yet another tough team in the Wisconsin Badgers (4).

As of right now, the Wisconsin Badgers (4) have been given the edge coming into this Sweet 16 showdown with a -4.5 point spread. Normally, I would say that the Badgers should cruise to victory and into the Elite Eight, but with the Bulldogs being as unpredictable as they have been, it doesn’t seem wise to bet against them in this game.
