Why Bet the Wisconsin Badgers Odds at -11?

The best reason to back Wisconsin in this contest is that they’re far superior to the Hoosiers on both sides of the ball. The Badgers got past Illinois 24-10 last weekend but they failed to cover the spread as insane 28.5-point road favorites just as I predicted. Quarterback Alex Hornibrook completed 10 of 19 passes for 135 yards with one interception and no TD passes, but Wisconsin got three rushing scores from their backup running backs and won the turnover battle 3-1 while recording five sacks and three quarterback hurries against the Illini’s inexperienced quarterbacks. The Badgers could be without gifted freshman running back Jonathan Taylor in this contest after he got banged-up in last week’s win. “He definitely makes some plays, even when things are tough to get the ball moving,” quarterback Alex Hornibrook said. “He will break a few tackles and get some first downs.” Taylor entered the game leading the Big Ten in rushing at 158.9 yards per game. He had 11 of UW’s 16 rushing touchdowns and 1,112 of UW’s 1,798 rushing yards. “We’ve got to overcome that,” Wisconsin head coach Paul Chryst said when asked about the loss of Taylor. “I thought sometimes we did and other times we didn’t.” For the season, the blossoming Hornibrook is completing 64.3 percent of his passes for 1,570 yards with 13 touchdowns, but eight interceptions. Wisconsin ranks a solid 32nd in scoring (35.0 ppg) and a stellar fifth in points allowed (12.9 ppg). Hornibrook has thrown at least one touchdown pass in eight straight games and the Badgers have won an impressive six straight road games.

Why Bet the Indiana Hoosiers Odds at +11?

The Hoosiers may have lost three consecutive games, but they’ve fought hard in each of their last four contests, including last week’s narrow 42-39 loss to Maryland. “Very disappointing loss for us,” Allen said. “It hurts our guys because the offense played well enough for us to win. Special teams prevented that, as well as some costly defensive mistakes, which has not been characteristic of us.” The College Football Week 10 Betting Odds are against the Hoosiers. In Week 8, Indiana played very competitive football but ended up falling against nationally-ranked Michigan State 17-9 as a 6.5-point home underdog . In Week 7, the Hoosiers fell at home against Michigan 27-20 in overtime. Unfortunately, the Hoosiers allow (26.8 ppg, 70th) almost as many points per game as they average this season (27.0 ppg, 76th). Quarterback Peyton Ramsey is completing an encouraging 65.4 percent of his passes for 1,252 yards with 10 touchdowns and a modest five interceptions.

Expert College Football Week 10 Betting Pick

While Indiana has been very competitive in losing their last three games all by less than eight points, the Wisconsin Badgers are the pick for me to win and cash in as a 11-point road favorite, particularly seeing as how they’ve alternated ATS wins and losses in every single game this season. Wisconsin has won each of their last two games by double digits and average eight points per game more than the Hoosiers while allowing 13.9 fewer points per game defensively. Wisconsin has gone a robust 8-1 ATS in their last nine road games while Indiana is an uninspiring 0-5-1 ATS in their last six conference games. I like the Badgers to make a statement with a huge win in this contest! Pick: Wisconsin -9
