Based on what we have seen, it seems Michigan has the better offense, but Wisconsin has the better defense in this game. This should lead to some scoreless possessions on both sides of the ball, but the oddsmakers have set the total awfully low for a team like Michigan that has hit the over in 12 straight. This game could be a defensive battle and still be something like 27-21. It could even be higher-scoring than that. Go with the over here.
