The Wisconsin Badgers will visit the Scarlet Knights of Rutgers on Saturday from Piscataway in this Big 10 conference matchup. After a rocky 1-3 start to the year, the Badgers have won four straight. Rutgers is 4-4 with all of their losses coming in Big Ten play. 

Wisconsin is in a three-way tie for second in the Big Ten; a win here would help a ton. QB Graham Mertz has a 39 QBR while completing 55.2 percent of his passes for 1,049 yards with three touchdowns and seven interceptions in the air. 

It’s the defense that has this team rolling as Wisconsin, sixth against the pass and first against the run. They are only allowing 17 points per game and in their last contest against the Iowa Hawkeyes, they gave up seven points on 156 total yards of offense. The Badgers are 16-6 ATS in their last 22 games as a road favorite.

Senior QB Noah Vedral, has been decent for Rutgers this year. He has a 47.8 QBR while completing 61.8 percent of his passes for 1,412 yards with seven touchdowns and three interceptions. He has rushed for 250 yards on 72 attempts with one rushing touchdown. He will be facing this highly regarded Wisconsin defense that produced 6 sacks last game. 

The Rutgers Scarlet Knights have been playing good defense as well, giving up 21.5 points per game. The Knights struggle against good teams as they are 0-4 ATS in their last 4 games as a home underdog. They also struggle to win at home with a 3-7 record ATS in their last 10 home games. 

Wisconsin has won the last three meetings in this series against the Scarlet Knights. In the last time these teams faced off, the Badgers generated 317 rushing yards in a win at home. On the road this time around, I expect the Badgers to make it hard for the Knights to move the ball. Rutgers will try to win this on the ground and Wisconsin only gives up 143 rushing yards per game. I don’t love it, but I’ll lay the points with Wisconsin.
