Rutgers vs Wisconsin Final NCAAF Betting Analysis

No doubt Wisconsin should win, but Rutgers has a couple of advantages heading into this matchup. The Badgers believed they could go undefeated this season. They’ve already lost 3 games. How they take that mentally could be an issue.

Second, Rutgers hasn’t played competitively since the almost victory over scorching Northwestern, who had won two in a row, including beating Michigan State on the road, before beating the Scarlet Knights.

Rutgers keeps this one close.
