Bet on Wisconsin Because…
Wisconsin’s defense has been stellar this season. The Badgers are 4-0 because of a lock down defense. Wisconsin allows 277 total yards per game. The Badgers 196.5 passing yards per game to go along with only 80 passing yards per. Wisconsin is the best defense that Michigan has faced so far in 2016.
Bet on Michigan Because…
Michigan looks like a complete team. By writing that, I mean that the Wolverines appear to be capable of winning games with their defense and winning games with their offense. They beat Colorado 45 to 28 in the only game that they didn’t cover so far this season. They routed Penn State 49 to 10. Michigan can win with either its offense or defense. That makes them a tough team to beat.
ATS Pick & Final Score Prediction
Wisconsin absolutely demolished Michigan State 30 to 6 as a +3.5 road underdog last Saturday. Wisconsin wasn’t supposed to win the game, much less win the game by such a stunning margin.
The Badgers are playing at a crazy high level right now. Michigan is a good team, probably one of the best teams in the nation, but they face a tight, strong, defense in the Wisconsin Badgers on Saturday.
10.5 is an awful lot of points to give up. I definitely can’t do that. I also believe that Michigan, as well as they’ve played so far this season, haven’t been close to playing against a team the caliber of Wisconsin. The Badgers have beaten LSU and Michigan State.
Michigan’s highest profile win was against Colorado, arguably one of the worst teams in the Pac-12. I’m with Wisconsin pulling off the moneyline upset.
