Randy’s Free Pick

The Michigan Wolverines are the better team and should be favored, especially at home, but both of these teams have been middle of road status and anything could happen here. The Wisconsin Badgers are a stingy defensive side that can hang in this game, and they lose as underdogs by an average of just 3.7 points. I’ll take a stab with the free buckets.
