WISC vs. IND Pick
No. 24 Wisconsin bounced back last week after losing two straight and on Saturday the Badgers look to start a winning streak when it faces Indiana at Noon ET from Memorial Stadium.
Bet Wisconsin at Indiana
The Badgers won their first five games before dropping games to Ohio State and Iowa. Last week, Wisconsin dominated Purdue 37-0. On the year, Wisconsin is 6-2 and 3-4 against the spread. Wisconsin has won four straight over Indiana.
The Hoosiers are 4-5 on the season and 5-4 against the point spread odds. Indiana has lost five of its last six games.
Oddsmakers from online sports book SBGGLOBAL have made Wisconsin 10.5-point road favorites over Indiana on Saturday afternoon. The over/under total for this game has been established at 54.5.
Wisconsin has only had point spread odds greater than 10 points one time this season, and the Badgers failed to cover that when hosting Northern Illinois. The Badgers have a strong running attack, but the Hoosiers have struggled more against the pass than the run this season. Wisconsin quarterback Scott Tolzien has only thrown nine touchdowns with eight interceptions this season, so the key to covering the odds will be in the Wisconsin defense.
Ben Chappell has been inconsistent for Indiana, throwing for 2,054 yards and 10 touchdowns with 10 interceptions. The Hoosiers could have a letdown on Saturday if they have given up on coach Bill Lynch, who is likely on his way out after another failing season.
Wisconson has not been impressive this season, but neither has Indiana. The Hoosiers have managed to scare teams like Iowa and Michigan this year and playing at home, they could give Wisconsin some trouble. We expect the Hoosiers to be able to score some points on Wisconsin and look for Tolzien to struggle on the road. Our pick is the Hoosiers to cover with 10 points and we also pick the under in a low-scoring Big Ten Conference affair.
