2019 Northwestern Wildcats Schedule Analysis
Northwestern will start the season on the road in a battle against Stanford in one of the most exciting clashes in week one. Right now, you can find them at +6.5 underdogs in the spread in this visit to California.
The return home in week two to face the UNLV Rebels is a game they should win; mostly because the next four weeks are brutal.
Northwestern Wildcats 2019 Roster Changes
HC Pat Fitzgerald will have new quarterback Hunter Johnson under center as he transferred from Clemson. Johnson is a five-star recruit in the 2017 recruiting class.
This should also be the breakout year of RB Isaiah Bowser, who recorded 734 yards in six games last season. On the receiving corp, five of their seven wideouts are back to help out Johnson.
On defense, the team will have to replace five starters, but playmaker DE Joe Gaziano is not one of them. Gaziano had 7.5 sacks last season.
Tough Starting Season Games
The Wildcats host Michigan State in week three to then travel to Wisconsin and Nebraska in back-to-back weeks. To make it even harder, when they return home from a bye week, Ohio State will be waiting in a featured Big Ten matchup.
The rest of the year they will have an easier schedule. It includes four home games and a very winnable contest against UMass in an outside conference matchup.
Northwestern Wildcats Odds To Win The Big Ten Conference
The Wildcats are listed +2000 to win the Big Ten Conference title with a 5% implied probability of winning.
Last year they had a chance to win the Conference title for the first time since 2000. However, they lost to Ohio State in the Big Ten Conference Championship game.
Northwestern Wildcats Odds To Win The National Championship
Northwestern has never won the National Championship, and they are listed at MyBookie.ag at +15000 to get what would be quite the upset pick.
The play on the Wildcats to be National Champs has a less than a 1% of becoming a winner.
Northwestern Wildcats 2019 Win Total Prediction
The Wildcats might not win the Big Ten Championship or even their division, but they will be hard to beat in 2019. The oddsmakers are selling this team short. Northwestern is a well-coached team with a solid recruiting history over the past few years.
Even if the first part of their schedule is brutal, betting on the over 6.5 wins should be a no brainer.
