Wisconsin 28, Troy 3

Back-to-back weeks where Wisconsin won the non-conference game at home but we learned next to nothing about the Badgers going forward. In fact, this result was closer than expected as the Badgers failed to cover the 29.5-point spread.

Wisconsin opened as a 28-point favorite against Hawaii this week and the line has been bet down to 24.5. Just to compare. Ohio State closed as a 42.5-point favorite against Hawaii in Week 2. I’m not expecting that we learn from Wisconsin in this game but that could change once Big Ten play starts.
