Two teams from the Big Ten will be squaring off when the Wisconsin Badgers visit the Minnesota Golden Gophers.
Both of these teams are coming off of wins in the previous week.
Wisconsin started off as a 6.5 point favorite and that number is now up to 7. I have seen the total go from 38.5 to 39. There are some shops that are showing 39.5.
After getting off to kind of a slow start, Wisconsin has really gotten better as the year has gone on. This is a team that I was very critical of at the beginning of the year, but that has not been the case lately.
The Badgers beat the Nebraska Cornhuskers last Saturday by a score of 35-28. The game was a little closer than they would have liked it, but you do not complain about a win.
In the win over Nebraska, Graham Mertz was 12/18 for 145 yards with 1 touchdown pass. He is someone that has improved his play as the year has gone on.
Running back Braelon Allen had a monster game last week. He finished the day with 22 carries for 228 yards with 3 touchdowns. I look for him to get plenty of touches on Saturday when they go against the Golden Gophers.
This team has been very good all year long when it comes to their defense. Sure, they did allow 28 points to the Huskers, but overall, they have been very impressive. It will not be easy for this unit when they go against a good team in Minnesota.
Minnesota Golden Gophers
A lot of other teams in the Big Ten are getting attention, but people really ought to be talking about this Minnesota team. I have been impressed with the way this program has played this year.
The Golden Gophers took care of the Indiana Hoosiers last week by a score of 35-14. That is exactly what they had to do against a very bad football team. Needless to say, things will be a lot more challenging this week when they go against the Badgers.
Tanner Morgan was 14/20 for 196 yards with 2 touchdown passes in the win last week. I do feel he can play well against Wisconsin, but it certainly will not be easy against that defense.
The running game was very effective for these guys last week. Ky Thomas had 26 carries for 105 yards and Mar’Keise Irving had 14 carries for 70 yards.
Similar to Wisconsin, this defense has been very effective for the Golden Gophers. If they are on their game, they should be able to limit some big plays from a very explosive offense in Wisconsin.

Two good teams from the Big Ten West squaring off in rivalry week? Oh yeah, give me that!

4* Free Week 13 NCAA Betting Pick:
To me, this is a very interesting matchup. I feel that it has the chance to be a very good game.
Overall, Wisconsin is the better team here, but I am not sold on them going on the road and getting this cover. I can see this being a competitive game.
As noted earlier, both of these defenses are good. With that said, I do think some points will be scored. I just see this being a game where Wisconsin does just a little more than Minnesota to win the game. I would be surprised to see a blowout by any side.
Give me the Golden Gophers getting 7 points at home in this one.
