There may not be a team that needs to bounce back more this week than Wisconsin. The Badgers went from a Top 10 team and a national title contender to number 20 in the country and 0-1 in the Big 10. The Badgers are heavily favored in college football betting online odds at Sbg global.com.
Angry Badgers – Wisconsin is very upset about last week’s loss to Michigan State and they have the perfect opponent to take it out on in Minnesota. The Gophers are a weak squad that should get blown off the map on Saturday in a game that can be seen on the Big 10 Network.
Longest Rivalry in College Football – You may not know this but the rivalry between Minnesota and Wisconsin is the longest one in Division I football. The teams play for Paul Bunyan's Axe in a game that goes back to 1890. The teams have played 119 games and they have met every year since 1907. Wisconsin has won the last six meetings between the two teams.
Wisconsin Favored by 21.5 – The Badgers are a 21.5 point favorite this week and they are likely to get most of the action from those betting college football. Who is really going to take Minnesota on the road in this game? Now having said that, the Gophers are 4-1 ATS in their last 5 games as an underdog and they are 8-3 ATS in their last 11 games as a road underdog. And Wisconsin does not have good numbers. The Badgers are 2-5 ATS in their last 7 conference games and they are 1-4 ATS in their last 5 games as a favorite. But the Gophers are 1-4 ATS in their last 5 meetings at Wisconsin.
Betting the Total – Since this game is televised it may get a little action on the total. The Over is 9-2 in the Gophers last 11 conference games. The last four Wisconsin conference games have gone over. The last five meetings in this series at Wisconsin have gone over the college football betting online total and that could happen again considering neither team has a strong defense.
