The Badgers are 13-3 ATS in their last 16 road games. Wisconsin is 16-5 ATS in its last 21 games versus the Big Ten.


The favorite is 5-16 ATS in the last 21 meetings. Michigan is 35-15-1 ATS in its last 51 Big Ten games.


Wisconsin has been a tough squad for the Wolverines in recent years, but Michigan does have revenge on its mind after the Badgers sent them to their first loss of the season. But with Wisconsin clicking on all cylinders right now and playing lights-out defense, I think it stays within the number here. In my opinion, the spread seems just a bit too wide and I plan on taking advantage.
