Wisconsin Badgers Game Notes

One week after dominating Northwestern 42-7, Wisconsin seeks its first winning streakthis season after finishing 2021 9-4. Graham Mertz offered his best performance by farduring an up-and-down campaign vs. the Wildcats while tossing five touchdowns on 20

of 29 completion accuracy. The junior signal-caller faces another prone secondary onSaturday and could pad his stats once more. Tailback Braelon Allen lent 185 of WU’s322 ground yards, and three of the Badgers’ six rushing scores, vs. Northwestern. It’slikely both offensive standouts will add more firepower to this weekend’s matchup.

Michigan State Spartans Game Notes

Like their upcoming opponent, Michigan State has declined following a successful 2021finish. However, it appears the Spartans have hit a lower low than Wisconsin. Sincestarting this fall 2-0, MSU has dropped four straight non-competitive outings. Their latestsetback saw Sparty hobbled 49-20 by #3-ranked Ohio State. While the Buckeyes tallied614 yards, Payton Thorne’s mediocre play continued. Thorne completed 11-of-18 for111 yards and one touchdown and interception. Overall, Thorne has tossed nine scoresand seven picks during what was thought to be his breakout year. Another troublingMSU stat from last weekend saw the Spartans add just seven total rushing yards.

Wisconsin vs. Michigan State Betting Prediction

On paper, it appears Wisconsin has a fairly decisive edge against the strugglingSpartans. Consider that the Badgers average 31.8 points per game and allow 19.5.Conversely, Michigan State averages 25.8 ppg and allows 25.7. Both teams weretrounced by OSU, and Wisconsin’s inconsistency is displayed by its 0-4 ATS statusfollowing a straight-up win. However, it looks like Mertz and Allen can run wild vs. a poorMSU defense. Those four straight losses have no doubt affected the Spartans’ resolve,but Thorne is still good enough to unload on a group that’s looked great vs. bad teams,and defensively irresponsible in its losses. Look for an offensive shootout in this one.
