Wisconsin Historically Safe Bet Against Michigan

Though Wisconsin and Michigan have not met in nearly six years, it has been the Badgers who have been the best bet historically. Wisconsin is 7-1-1 ATS in the past nine games against Michigan – while winning the last two straight up as well. Wisconsin and Michigan renew an old rivalry when they clash Saturday.

SHARK BITES
  • The OVER is 4-0 in Michigan’s 4 games this season.
  • The OVER is 4-0 in the past 4 meetings between Wisconsin and Michigan.
  • Michigan is 9-2 SU in its last 11 games against teams with winning records.

Though Wisconsin is a run-first offense, the team may have found its starting quarterback of the future in Alex Hornibrook. The freshman had seen snaps in the previous two games, but showed poise in his first game as starter against Michigan State last week.

Michigan has looked dominant so far this season – aside from one bad half against Colorado – but has still yet to face spectacular competition. The Wolverines have one of the best scoring differentials in the country, as they are outscoring opponents by 38.2 points per game.
