Rich Rod under pressure

Rich Rodriguez is in desperate need of a win on Saturday when Michigan travels to No. 21 Wisconsin for a Noon ET kickoff with the Badgers from Camp Randall Stadium.

Bet Michigan at Wisconsin
Michigan is 5-5 this season and 4-5 against the spread. The Wolverines have lost three straight and trends show they have allowed 30 points in six of their 10 games. The road team has lost five of the last six meetings in this series.

The Badgers are 7-2 on the season and 3-5 against the spread. Wisconsin has won two straight but failed to cover in three of their last four games. Wisconsin has just one loss at home this season and the Badgers have scored at least 28 points in five of their six home games.
Oddsmakers from online sports book SBGGLOBAL have made Wisconsin 9-point home favorites over Michigan on Saturday afternoon The over/under total for this game has been established at 55.

Michigan and Wisconsin have comparable offensive numbers this year in terms of points and yards per-game, but the Wolverines have a much worse defense than the Badgers, and that is the key to making a pick in this game.

Wisconsin is giving up nearly 100 yards less per-game than Michigan and the point spread odds seem to reflect the Michigan name rather than its performance on the field this season. The Wolverines have yet to win on the road and have lost their last three by an average of 17.3 points per-game. Tate Forcier has thrown for just one touchdown in the last five games for Michigan, and he will likely struggle again against a tough Wisconsin defense.

Michigan appears to be continuing its downward spiral while Wisconsin is playing for a New Year’s Day bowl. For those reasons, we suggest a pick of Wisconsin to cover with the under 55.

Our College Football Week 11 Free Pick for this matchup is: WISCONSIN +9 and UNDER 55.
