What the NCAAF Odds Say About The Michigan vs. Wisconsin Matchup
Wisconsin opened -3 at MyBookie.ag for this Big Ten game. The betting line moved half a point up, and it has been at -3.5 for a while.
I don’t think it is going to back to a field goal difference, but it’s never a bad idea to shop around. The total has bounced around 43.5 and 43 points.
What Michigan Brings To The Game vs. Wisconsin
The Wolverines didn’t play last week. The last time they took the field, Michigan needed overtime to get rid of a scrappy Army team.
Tough Matchups Coming Into This Week
Facing Military schools is always a challenge because they commit so much to the run game. Even if Michigan knew this, they couldn’t stop it.
The Black Knights posted 200 rushing yards and controlled the time of possession. A late mistake by Army’s QB Kelvin Hopkins resulted in a fumble lost that sealed the win for the Wolverines during the second overtime.
Big Moves Of Michigan Odds
Before the start of the year, the Wolverines were +1300 to win the National Championship. Two games into the season and the oddsmakers at MyBookie.ag changed the odds to +2200.
Not Impressed With The Wolverines
The Wolverines have been one of the least impressive teams in the first weeks of the NCAAF. Their offense is not dynamic at all. It’s safe to say it is one of the most predictable units among the Top 25 teams in college football.
Senior QB Shea Patterson hasn’t evolved on his second year as the leader of the Wolverines offense. In two games this season he has thrown for 410 yards and three scores.
He didn’t throw a TD against Army. Patterson needs a more significant effort if the Wolverines want to leave Wisconsin with a win.
What Wisconsin Brings To The Game vs. Michigan
Wisconsin didn’t play last weekend either. The Badgers are 2-0 with a +110 point differential after two games. That’s what happens when you have South Florida and Central Michigan scheduled at the start of the season.
The Badgers never get the respect they want. They are in the ugly division inside the Big Ten, where no one takes them seriously, even if the team usually ends up second or first in the standings.
Chance To Continue Moving The Lines In Their Favor
If Wisconsin wants some respect, this is the perfect time to get it. Beating a team like Michigan will put the Badgers on the map for the rest of the season.
At the start of the year, the Badgers were listed +6600 to win the National Championship. Right now, they are +4500 at MyBookie.ag and if they beat Michigan, those numbers will go down.
Taylor Is Key To Winning
Tailback Jonathan Taylor will be the key to the game against Michigan. He has recorded 237 rushing yards and five scores this season.
The Badgers have averaged 216.5 rushing yards per game during the wins over South Florida and Central Michigan.
Michigan vs. Wisconsin College Football Prediction
Since Jim Harbaugh took the Michigan head coaching job in 2015, the team has had high expectations. The program has given fans very lousy performances in return, and 2019 doesn’t fall far from that tree.
The Wolverines don’t have a good enough offense to go into Camp Randall Stadium and dominate this game. Their defense, instead, should keep them in contention; even that may not be enough.
It’s all set up for Wisconsin’s first big win of the season. The Badgers running game is talented enough to control the tempo of the game and deliver a sound victory at home.
If you can get Wisconsin -3, don’t even think about it and jump on it. The Badgers at -3.5 remains a good bet as well.
