Randy’s Free Pick

The Northwestern Wildcats are a tough out at home, where they win by an average of 10.2 points, but their offense is terrible to say the least. Northwestern also hasn’t played in over a week and has been dealing with COVID-19 issues, so who knows how they’re going to perform. Wisconsin is good enough defensively to give a below average Northwestern offensive side trouble. Give me the Badgers and whatever the line is.
