The one game you have to watch and follow as you bet on college football this week is #1 Ohio State at #18 Wisconsin.
This game is the toughest one so far this season for the Buckeyes and they are just 3.5 point road favorites in college football betting at the Sbg sportsbook.
If the Buckeyes are to lose a game this season it very well could be at Wisconsin. Ohio State has really not played anyone this season and they have played only one road game. They will get their first true test against the Badgers.
40-4 – That is the record of Wisconsin at home since the start of the 2004 season. They are extremely tough to beat at Camp Randall Stadium. They have won 25 of their last 28 night games.
Great Matchup – The Buckeyes have Terrelle Pryor while the Badgers have quarterback Scott Tolzien and running back John Clay. The Badgers are fourth in the Big 10 in offense at 450 yards per game. They will have to put up points since it is likely that the Buckeyes will be able to score. Pryor threw for a career high 334 yards last week in a win over Indiana.
Wisconsin has to win this game if they are to remain in the Big 10 title hunt. The Badgers already lost to Michigan State so another conference loss would end their chances.
