Defensively, Purdue is allowing 27.8 points and 410.7 yards per game. Ben Holt leads the Purdue Boilermakers with 99 tackles, George Karlaftis has six sacks and Cory Trice has three interceptions.
The Wisconsin Badgers look for a win after splitting their last four games. The Wisconsin Badgers have won their last six home games. Jack Coan is completing 72.2 percent of his passes for 1,826 yards, 13 touchdowns and three interceptions. Coan has one or less touchdown passes in six of his last seven games. Quintez Cephus and Jake Ferguson have combined for 807 receiving yards and six touchdowns while AJ Taylor has 21 receptions. The Wisconsin Badgers ground game is averaging 235.1 yards per contest, and Jonathan Taylor leads the way with 1,463 yards and 17 touchdowns.

The Boilermakers are 5-1 ATS in their last 6 conference games, 17-7 ATS in their last 24 road games and 5-1 ATS in their last 6 games overall. The Badgers are 5-2 ATS in their last 7 home games, 10-4-1 ATS in their last 15 games in November and 1-5 ATS vs. a team with a losing record. The Boilermakers are 3-13 ATS in their last 16 meetings and the favorite is 9-3 ATS in their last 12 meetings. The under is 5-2 in Badgers last 7 games overall. The under is 12-4 in Boilermakers last 16 road games.
The Purdue Boilermakers are 6-1 ATS in their last seven games as a double-digit underdog. The Wisconsin Badgers are 5-5 ATS in their last 10 games as a double-digit favorite. The Purdue Boilermakers have won back-to-back games, has had an extra week to prepare for this game and needs to win their last two games to clinch a bowl game. The Wisconsin Badgers have put together a couple of nice wins, but they still lack the offensive explosion it takes to cover these type of numbers. The last two meetings between Wisconsin and Purdue have been decided by a combined 11 points. Give me Purdue as an underdog.
