The Illinois Fighting Illini will play the Wisconsin Badgers in a Big Ten Conference Game on Saturday afternoon at Camp Randall Stadium in Madison, Wisconsin.

The Illinois Fighting Illini are 3-1 this season after they defeated Chattanooga by a score of 31-0 in their last game. Illinois held Chattanooga to 142 total yards and forced two turnovers in the win. The Illinois offense is averaging 28.3 points per game with 245 passing yards per game and 209.8 rushing yards per game. Tommy DeVito has thrown for 951 yards, nine touchdowns and two interceptions for the Fighting Illini this season. Chase Brown has rushed for 604 yards and three touchdowns, while Isaiah Williams has caught 28 passes for 260 yards and two scores. The Illinois defense is giving up 8 points per game and 234.5 yards per game.

The Wisconsin Badgers are 2-2 this season after they lost to Ohio State by a score of 52-21 in Week 4. Wisconsin allowed 539 total yards in this game and trailed 45-7 at the start of the fourth quarter. The Wisconsin offense is averaging 34.8 points per game with 221.3 passing yards per game and 211.8 rushing yards per game. Graham Mertz has thrown for 791 yards, seven touchdowns, and three interceptions for the Badgers this season. Braelon Allen has rushed for 497 yards and six scores, while Skyler Bell has caught 12 passes for 201 yards and two touchdowns. The Wisconsin defense is allowing 19 points per game and 319.3 yards per game.

Illinois is 6-1 ATS in their last 7 games and 7-3 ATS in their last 10 conference games. The under is 5-1 in Illinois’ last 6 road games. Wisconsin is 2-5 ATS in their last 7 games and 0-4 ATS in their last 4 games against a team with a winning record. The over is 4-1 in Wisconsin’s last 5 conference games. The over is 5-0 in these two teams last 5 head to head meetings in Wisconsin.

Wisconsin struggled on both sides of the ball for most of the game against Ohio State, but will play a more manageable opponent in this game. Illinois has played well this season, but lost to Indiana, which looks like a bad loss. Both of these defenses have been strong this season and I think we see a lower scoring game here. I am taking the under.

The pick in this article is the opinion of the writer, not a PickDawgz site consensus.
