Wisconsin at Ohio State Preview, Prediction and Pick (10/26/19)

This was shaping up to be the Big Ten game of the year. Then Illinois happened. Wisconsin was such a big favorite over the Illini that most sports books didn’t bother putting up a moneyline. Whoops! Can the Badgers rebound against the Buckeyes? The WagerTalk TV crew offers up their Wisconsin at Ohio State preview.

Event: (199) Wisconsin Badgers +14 at (200) Ohio State Buckeyes (o/u 50.5)
Date/Time: Saturday, October 26 at 12:00 p.m. EDT

Both teams had the benefit of easing into their 2019 schedules. Neither team played a Power 5 opponent in the non-conference schedule, but Ohio State did play a ranked Cincinnati squad. That lack of competition certainly hurt the Badgers last week against Illinois, and doesn’t bode well for them this week in Columbus. From WagerTalk handicapper Ralph Michaels: Wisconsin’s seven opponents have an average offensive efficiency rank of 83rd in the country, and NONE of them rank higher then 43rd. Now, they have to play one of the country’s Top-3 offenses.

A few trends, courtesy of The Gold Sheet:

  • Ohio State has covered the spread in each of its last six games.
  • Paul Chryst is 8-4 against the spread as an underdog at Wisconsin.
  • Wisconsin is 16-6 against the spread in their last 22 road games.
