Will Tanner Mordecai bounce back for the Badgers vs. Washington State?

The Badgers have a feisty Week 2 opponent in Washington State.

The Wisconsin Badgers are traveling to face off against the Washington State Cougars in Week 2, with kickoff slated for 6:30 P.M. CT on Saturday.

Heading into the game, the Badgers are seen as -6.5 point favorites, according to DraftKings, but the Cougars present a tough challenge, led by quarterback Cameron Ward, who passed for 450 yards in Washington State’s 50-24 Week 1 win.

On the other side, the Badgers are looking for a bounce-back performance from quarterback Tanner Mordecai, who completed 24/31 passes for 198 yards, one touchdown, and two interceptions in Week 1 against Buffalo.

How will Mordecai fare in Week 2?

DraftKings Sportsbook placed the over/under on Mordecai’s passing yards at 237.5, with each side of the slate earning -115 odds.

Mordecai’s passing touchdowns over/under are also listed at 1.5, with the over earning -150 odds and the under listed at +115 odds.

Meanwhile, DraftKings sees higher projects for Ward, whose over/under is at 280.5 yards and touchdowns at 1.5.

Will Mordecai exceed expectations, or will the Badgers face a close bout due to shaky quarterback play?

The Badgers’ signal-caller is looking to prove doubters wrong, and his first step comes on Saturday against the Cougars.
