Betting on the Wisconsin Badgers

Going 13-0 and a Big Ten championship under their belts practically guarantees a spot for the Badgers in the College Football Playoff.

But, it was the win over Iowa (along with the blowouts of top teams in the rankings) that put Wisconsin on this road.

Can they keep their lossless record against the Wolverines?

They’ll have to work for it, but they can.

The Wolverines’ defense will fight them tooth and claw, but Wisconsin’s offense is one Michigan’s D may not be up to stopping; one that was run over by Penn State for 244 yards and then by Michigan State for 158 yards.

Though they might not have as much success on the ground as they did against Iowa, where they acquired 247 yards, they should be able to gain some traction on the ground.

A few key details: if they can knock Brandon Peters off balance, if Alex Hornibrook can avoid throwing picks and Jonathan Taylor can keep the ball in his hands then the Badgers can knock another win.

The Badgers also have the advantage on defense. Again, recall last week’s game where they held the Hawkeyes (the team that carved up Ohio State’s defense to pieces) to only 25 rushing yards and 41 through the air.

It’s looking good for the Badgers so far. But, nothing’s for sure in college football.

Betting on the Michigan Wolverines

Having said the Badgers might not have as much success on the ground as they had against Iowa was an understatement.

The Wolverines defense is just too good at stopping the run. Wisconsin will try, but Michigan will dig and make them fight for every inch.

There’s no secret strategy for the Wolverines, they do what they do: run the ball, control the clock and shut down opponents on third down opportunities.

When you have a defense that’s No. 1 in the nation in stopping third downs and getting off the field quickly then that’s what you do.

It’s probably not enough to win the game, but can they cover the spread?

The come into this game as the 7.5-point underdogs, but if one can learn anything of their game against Maryland it’s that they can put up points.

The Wolverines have won their last three games by an average score of 34-11 and they’ll stay in the fight in this game as well.
