The Badgers are 1-4 ATS in their last 5 games in November and 3-7 ATS in their last 10 conference games. The under is 4-0 in Golden Gophers last 4 games overall. The under is 4-0 in Badgers last 4 games in November. The Golden Gophers are 3-0-1 ATS in their last 4 meetings in Wisconsin. The road team is 6-1-1 ATS in their last 8 meetings.
It’s hard to predict what will happen in this game because both teams have been so hit or miss all season long. The Minnesota Golden Gophers are probably the better team from top to bottom, but it’s Wisconsin that’s won 8 of the last 10 meetings and is at home for senior day with 21 seniors on its roster. I lean Badgers, but anything can happen in this likely low scoring defensive Big Ten battle.
