taylor_badgers

The Wisconsin Badgers are 13-0 SU in their last 13 games against the Minnesota Golden Gophers, though Minnesota has held a 6-3-1 ATS edge in the last 10 games in this series. Wisconsin will try to keep its undefeated record intact with a road win over Minnesota on Saturday.

SHARK BITES
  • Wisconsin is 9-1 ATS in its last 10 games on the road.
  • Minnesota is 2-7 SU in its last nine games against its conference.
  • The total has gone OVER in 15 of Wisconsin’s last 17 games against Minnesota.

Facing their two toughest tests of the season over the last two weeks in home games against the Iowa Hawkeyes and Michigan Wolverines, the Badgers have passed with flying colors. Wisconsin rolled to double-digit wins over both of those teams and improved to 11-0 SU and 7-4 ATS in the process. Jonathan Taylor has already rushed for 1,657 yards and 12 touchdowns and looks to be well on his way to a 2000-yard season.

Minnesota failed to carry the momentum of a 54-21 win over Nebraska into last Saturday’s road tilt against Northwestern, falling flat in a 39-0 loss. The Golden Gophers are just 2-6 SU and ATS since starting the season on a promising 3-0 SU and 2-1 ATS note. Over its last 31 games played in November, Minnesota is 22-8-1 ATS.
