Wisconsin is coming off an 8-6 season but a second-straight Big Ten Championship title. However, coach Brett Bielema left the program for Arkansas and now Gary Andersen steps in from Utah State. UMass went just 1-11 last year and 4-8 against the spread. This is the first meeting between these two teams.

Odds: The oddsmakers from Bovada.lv have Wisconsin as the heavy favorite at home, as the Badgers have odds of -44.5 points against UMass. The over/under total for the game has been set at 52.5 points

Line Movement: The opening odds for this game had Wisconsin favored by 45 points. The spread has simply dropped to 44.5 since opening. The over/under odds opened at 53 and dipped down to 52.5 points during the week.

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.
