Wisconsin returns 15 starters from a team that went 10-3 last season. It won’t be easy for Wisconsin vs. college football betting online odds since they have to play Ohio State but at least they get them at home.
Betting college football odds with the Badgers should see them favored in most of their games in 2010. Their two toughest games in 2010 come in back-to-back weeks. They host the Buckeyes on October 16th and they go to Iowa the next week. The Big 10 race will be greatly impacted by those two games.
Wisconsin has not won a Big 10 title since 1999 but they are expected to be in the mix this season. The Badgers are 35-1 in college football betting online odds to win the national championship this season. Wisconsin returns quarterback Scott Tolzien who led the Big Ten in passing efficiency last season. He needs to play better against Ohio State and Iowa as he had five interceptions in the two games against them last season with no TDs. The Badgers will have a strong running game with junior John Clay, sophomore Montee Ball, senior Zach Brown and freshman James White. Wisconsin has excellent receivers in Nick Toon and senior tight end Lance Kendricks. The offensive line is again loaded with talent so the Badgers should score a lot of points in 2010.
The defense for Wisconsin does have some issues. The defensive line has major holes but at least the linebackers seem solid led by Chris Borland who was the Big Ten Freshman of the Year last season. The secondary is okay but nothing special. The Badgers do have a solid kicking game with punter Brad Nortman and kicker Philip Welch.
Wisconsin has the offensive talent to win the Big 10 this season but they may not have the defensive strength. If the defense can avoid giving up big plays then perhaps the Badgers offense can outscore other teams and control the ball. It could be a big year in Madison in 2010 if the defense plays well and if they win their two key games against Ohio State and Iowa.
