Meanwhile, the Wildcats, who stand at 4-5, are coming off a 10-7 loss to the Iowa Hawkeyes.
What are all of the odds ahead of the game?
Last week, the Badgers went to Bloomington as double-digit favorites and dropped the ball with a six-point loss.
This week, they return home and face a feisty Northwestern team that has experience and has played in a number of close games this season.
Given the uncertainty around Braelon Allen and Chimere Dike, I’m not sure why the line is as high as it is, especially when considering Wisconsin’s recent play.
The Badgers can certainly pull this one out. I’m just not sure that it’ll come by at least 12 points.
My prediction: Northwestern +12.
