Should you be confident the Badgers will beat the 'over/under'?
Every year during the preseason time, various betting sites release their over/under totals for teams in college football. The Wisconsin Badgers got a very interesting 10 wins for their over/under per 5Dimes line and at least one prominent site feels like that is a solid play.
Check out what The Big Lead had to say in their article about teams you should feel confident about:
"The Badgers would have to be perfect, after losing to Alabama opening weekend. Their schedule is bad enough to make that quite reasonable. The only tough games are at Nebraska (rebuilding) and at Minnesota (just lost four NFL draft picks). Wisconsin has a lot coming back on defense, as much Wisconsin continuity as possible with Paul Chryst taking over. If we can presume the Badgers will be able to run the ball, they should be set, until the rematch with Ohio State, of course."
The Badgers are going to be such a wild card this season. They will get more of a benefit of the doubt than most teams who have a new head coach because Paul Chryst is a Wisconsin man but there are certainly question marks with this team. The biggest one will be if Joel Stave is completely over his "yips" from last season. He is still the key to how successful this season will be in Madison.
