The account of a 6-0 start to the season did the Badgers gain national acclaim. Wisconsin’s 35-14 home payout over Michigan was seen as the ultimate statement maker of a playoff contender. However, a loss at Illinois exposed the Badgers as a team that lacked the talent to win while playing poorly. In the same way, the Hawkeyes must play smart and motivated at all times to win. Iowa and Wisconsin are teams that develop and drill for College Football betting success. Most important of all both teams can still make the Big Ten championship game.

Iowa Hawkeyes vs. Wisconsin Badgers College Football Betting Picks
Of great concern is how defenses are bunching up to stop Wisconsin running back Jonathan Taylor. As a result, Taylor is no longer a Heisman candidate. However, in this matchup, the Badgers have the College Football Betting advantage on offense. Iowa just doesn’t have any.
