  • All the Big Ten teams cranking the AP top 25.
  • Purdue leads the way at No. 3.

The Big Ten is one of the best leagues from top-to-bottom in college basketball, which makes it one of the most popular for college basketball betting.

Here’s an up-to-date list of all the Big Ten teams in the AP top 25.

College Basketball Rankings: Big Ten Teams in AP Top 25 This Week

3. Purdue Boilermakers (15-1, 4-1)

After losing to Rutgers at home early in the week, Purdue went on the road twice and pulled out gritty wins. The first one was at Ohio State, where the Boilermakers needed a second-half comeback to get the win. The week ended with Purdue winning at the Palestra against Penn State.

Purdue will host Nebraska this week before an MLK holiday matchup on January 16 at Michigan State.

This Week’s Games: 1/13 vs. Nebraska, 1/16 at Michigan State

18. Wisconsin Badgers (11-3, 3-1)

The Badgers fell to No. 18 after an overtime loss to Illinois this past weekend. An early week win against Minnesota kept them from falling further and a half-game out of the lead for the Big Ten.

Wisconsin gets Michigan State at home this week before a Saturday matchup with Indiana in Bloomington. The Badgers should be favored in both games, allowing them a chance to keep pace with the top of the conference and move up in the polls.

This Week’s Games: 1/3 vs. Minnesota, 1/7 at Illinois
