NCAA Tournament Odds: Pitt-Wisconsin a near pick 'em

Jasen Vinlove-USA TODAY Sports

While the No. 10 Pitt Panthers are seeded several spots lower than the No. 7 Wisconsin Badgers, Vegas has the game as a virtual pick 'em with the line shrinking as we move closer to game time.

The game opened with Pitt as a three-point underdog. However, that line shrunk to two points earlier this week and as of Friday evening, is down to one.

That sort of symbolizes most of what we've heard about this game - that it's up for grabs with both teams being relatively equal despite the seed difference. In reality, this looks more like an 8-9 game than a 10-7. Either team could really show up and end up with a bigger-than-expected margin of victory. But entering the contest, it's a virtual toss up.

Game time at 6:50 p.m. and you can catch it on TNT. Be sure to join us here for the open gamethread to comment live during the action.
