Las Vegas Bowl Final Betting Prediction
Arizona State imploded in the second half of the season while the Wisconsin Badgers put themselves in a position to play in the Big Ten Championship. The reason the Badgers didn’t get to play for the conference title is that they lost to the Gophers in their final regular season game.
Neither team will be one-hundred percent going into this. But Wisconsin looks deeper on both sides of the ball. Not only that, but the Badgers’ style should work in their favor.
Also, ASU’s defense, although decent, allows over 131 rushing yards. Wisconsin’s offensive line, even if it’s missing a couple of key players, and running back Braelon Allen should dominate. Badgers win and cover.
