Bet The Wisconsin Badgers Because…
Wisconsin struggled but managed to get past Georgia State in its 23-17 Week 3 win despite failing to cover the spread as a whopping 35.5-point favorite.
Starting quarterback Bart Houston completed 10 of 18 passes for 91 yards while backup Alex Hornibrook completed 8 of 12 passes for 122 yards with one touchdown and one interception. Defensively, Wisconsin held the Panthers to a paltry 44 rushing yards in the win. Wisconsin is allowing just 13.7 points and 261 yards per game.
Bet The Michigan State Spartans Because…
Michigan State mugged and man-handled Notre Dame in its 36-28 win on Saturday while narrowly covering the college football betting line as a 7.5-point road favorite as quarterback Tyler O’Connor completed 19 of 26 passes for 241 yards with two touchdowns and one interception.
Running back Gerald Holmes rushed 13 times for 100 yards and two touchdowns while fellow back L.J. Scott rushed 22 times for 98 yards and one score.
Defensively, the Spartans forced three turnovers and is allowing 20.5 points and 313.5 yards per game.
Expert Pick & Final Score Prediction
While I really like Wisconsin and believe they could challenge for the Big Ten title, for me, the Michigan State Spartans are the pick to win and narrowly cover the spread, especially after seeing how much the Badgers struggled the last time out.
The Badgers are 2-5 ATS in their last seven road games and 0-4 ATS in their last four meetings against the Spartans, while Michigan State has gone 3-0-1 ATS in their last four conference games.
The Spartans win and narrowly cover!
