ESPN Has Interesting Prediction For Ohio State vs Wisconsin
Ohio State has an interesting prediction for Ohio State vs Wisconsin in a new article.
One of this weekend’s most highly anticipated showdowns is a Big Ten battle between Ohio State and Wisconsin.
Prior to the Badgers’ stunning defeat to Illinois last weekend, many viewed it as a battle for conference supremacy.
After Wisconsin fell to Illinois, though, the outing became just another speed bump for the Buckeyes en route to a College Football Playoff appearance.
In a new article, ESPN’s Bill Connelly utilized the SP+ system to take an early look at this Saturday’s big game.
According to SP+, Ohio State has a 74 percent of beating Wisconsin at home with a projected score of 31-20.
For what it is worth: SP+ had Wisconsin with a 92 percent chance of beating Illinois, so read into that what you will.
If the Badgers run the ball well and challenge them on defense – clearly they have a better opportunity to upset Ohio State than Illinois did them.
“If the Badgers are able to move on from that gutting loss, they still have all the same components they did a week ago,” the ESPN article noted.
“If they force Ohio State to settle for field goals (while scoring TDs themselves) and play a lovely game of slow-motion keepaway, they can beat anyone, including the best team in the country to date.”
Will Wisconsin ultimately be able to pull off the upset?
We’ll find out in 24 hours.
