One of the biggest questions that college football betting fans were left with last week was whether or not Wisconsin really has the ability to beat some of the best teams in the Big Ten, or whether it really is as bad as Northern Iowa made it look last week, especially in the second half. Last year, the Oregon State offense just had nothing going in the “Bounce House,” knowing that the Badgers shut it out and allowed it to amass just 284 total yards. Have the Beavers really improved that much over the course of the last year? We just don’t think that that is the case. What we know about Wisconsin is that it is going to be able to run the ball and run it well, and last year’s 118 yards and two TDs for RB Montee Ball was one of his lesser games of the year. As long as Ball can keep rolling, there really should be no reason to see the defense allowing all that many points. Had this game been played a week ago, would the Beavers really only be getting a touchdown? We think not. Remember that two years ago this was a team that screwed around with both UNLV and San Jose State before ultimately finishing 11-1 and ending the year with nearly having three 1,000-yard rushers. The Badgers are legit, and they’ll show it on Saturday.
