Big day of college football coming up. T&C went 1-1 on Thursday, here’s a good one for the weekend…
Wisconsin -4 @ Michigan
The Pick : Wisconsin -4
This is a tough game for me because my hatred of both of these teams is equally high.
Once again, there has got to be an explanation for Michigan’s opponent not being favored by more points, which for UM it usually means there is just flat out more public money on them. Vegas is begging me to take the Badgers.
Wisconsin is having a solid year with wins over Iowa and Ohio State (don’t forget – I’M TALKING TO YOU VOTERS – UW got thrashed by Michigan State earlier this season). The Badgers running attack has developed over the season, led by John Clay, James White and Monte Ball, and is arguably the most potent ground attack in the country.
I feel like we’ve gone over this several times this year: Michigan is bad. Their second consecutive September Heisman winner can’t make it through a whole game, their defense is pitiful (at best), they struggle on special teams and their coaching staff is delightfully incompetent.
Michigan’s biggest shortcoming is in their secondary and I full expect Wisconsin QB Scott Tolzien to take advantage of it. Look for huge days from TE Lance Kendricks and WR Nick Toon.
Sorry Wolverine fans, this Badger team just hung 80+ on an Indiana team that has a better defense than yours. Also, I don’t think Wisconsin has forgotten the 2008 loss to Michigan – they’ll be out for revenge today. Ann Arbor is probably feeling happy-go-lucky after back to back wins over Big Ten bottom dwellers. This is going to get ugly in Michigan Stadium today. Take Wisconsin and give up the 4.
