COLLEGE FOOTBALL FREE PICK: Take Wisconsin. According to latest college football trends, Wisconsin is 5-2 against the spread in its last seven games on fieldturf and 14-6-1 against the number in its last 21 home games. On the other side, UMass is 2-5 against the spread in its last seven games overall, 2-6 ATS in its last eight road games, and 0-5 ATS in its last five non-conference games. Montee Ball is gone but James White and Melvin Gordon should run all over an overmatched Massachusetts team facing probation if it doesn’t average 15,000 in attendance at Gillette Stadium this season. Look for new head coach Gary Anderson to make a statement in his first game for Wisconsin the post-Bret Bielema era. This should be a bloodbath.
