MADISON, WI (TheSpread) – With the Big Ten breaking into new divisions, the door seems to be open for Wisconsin to dominate the Big Ten West. Will the Badgers do it?

View 2015 National Championship Odds

According to oddsmakers at Bovada.lv, the over/under win total odds for the Badgers has been set at 9.5 this season. The over has odds of -140, while the under has a money line of +110.

Wisconsin went 9-4 last season and 6-2 in the Big Ten in Gary Andersen’s first year as head coach. The Badgers had all three losses during the regular season come by one score, including 7-point losses to Ohio State and Penn State. The Badgers then fell to South Carolina in the Capital One Bowl.

Offensively, Wisconsin may be the best team in the Big Ten. The Badgers averaged 34.8 points and 480.8 yards per game last season. This year, the team will be led on offense by Heisman candidate Melvin Gordon at running back. Gordon rushed for 1,609 yards and 12 touchdowns this year and could threaten to go for 2,000 this season. Joel Stave is also back at quarterback, but his decision making is in question after throwing 13 interceptions in 2013.

Defensively, Wisconsin is losing a lot. The Badgers have just three starters back on that side of the ball and are very inexperienced up front. The team is looking at starting two freshmen at the defensive end positions. With a 3-4 defense, Wisconsin will rely on speed, but there may be a lot of high-scoring games early in the season for the Badgers.

The schedule starts a little rough for Wisconsin, as it will face LSU in the season opener from Houston, TX. From there, things get much easier. The Badgers host Western Illinois, Bowling Green and South Florida before starting Big Ten play in the West, which is far less difficult than the East. Wisconsin’s toughest foe in the West is Nebraska, which it will host this season. The biggest challenge in conference play could be at Northwestern on Oct. 4 or at Iowa on Nov. 22. However, Wisconsin is the favorite to win the West for a reason, and 10 wins is certainly within reach this year.
