The Badgers are 5-2 ATS in their last 7 conference games and 3-10 ATS vs. a team with a winning record. The Buckeyes are 1-4 ATS in their last 5 games overall.

The Badgers are 0-5-1 ATS in their last 6 meetings in Ohio State and 3-8-1 ATS in their last 12 meetings.
The Ohio State Buckeyes have the offensive horses to really pile it on here, but this line isn't showing Wisconsin much respect. Yes, the Wisconsin Badgers aren't as talented as they've been in past years, but they still get after it defensively, and it's hard seeing them getting taken behind the woodshed because of that defensive effort. Wisconsin has the ability to grind games down and do just enough to hang around before running out of gas in the fourth quarter. The Badgers won't be an easy out. Give me the points.
