Badgers struggling to cover vs. MINN
MINNEAPOLIS, MN (Spread Winners) – The Badgers head to Minneapolis tonight to take on Minnesota, which has spelled trouble for bettors in previous meetings.
According to oddsmakers from online sports book BetDSI, Wisconsin is a 6.5-point road favorite after opening as a 6-point favorite, while the total opened at 131.5 and is now sitting at 130.5 points.
We like Minnesota to cover the 6.5 points in tonight’s 7:00PM ET matchup. The Badgers are just 1-5-1 against the spread in their last seven games versus the Golden Gophers and are 1-3-1 at the betting window in their last five road games in Minnesota.
Wisconsin is also winless at 0-4 against the spread in its last four conference games and 2-5 ATS in its last five games coming off a win. On the other side, Minnesota is a perfect 6-0 against the spread in its last six games on Thursday and 4-1 against the number in its last five home games versus a team with a winning road record.
