Wisconsin at Fresno State Pick and Preview

#10 Wisconsin at #21 Fresno State
Saturday, 10:30 pm Eastern – ESPN 2

SBG Global Opening Line: Wisconsin    1.5  ,  Total  44


One of the best games on Saturday might be the one that begins the latest as #21 Fresno State hosts #10 Wisconsin. The Badgers have had two easy wins at home against cupcakes while Fresno State opened with an impressive win at Rutgers.  Saturday’s game should prove which team is for real. SBG Global reports that early College Football betting has the public taking Wisconsin on the Road.


Last week Wisconsin quarterback Allan Evridge passed for 308 yards and a touchdown in the 51-14 win over Marshall.  The Badgers are normally known for running the ball with P.J. Hill but they have now proven they can run and throw. “It shows that we’re a very balanced offense and we can do both,” said Evridge, “But I think as a unit we always knew that we could throw the ball.”  Wisconsin will be hoping to get tight end Travis Beckum back in the lineup on Saturday.  He has missed the first two games due to a hamstring injury.


Fresno State has been a good home team under Pat Hill going 51-12.  This is the highest ranked team to ever visit Fresno State, tying #10 Oregon State who visited in 2001.  Fresno won that game against Oregon State 44-24.  Head coach Pat Hill is calling Saturday’s game against Wisconsin the biggest in the history of the school.  It might be tough for the Bulldogs considering Wisconsin has won 26 of its last 27 regular season non-conference games including 7 straight on the road.


Here are the College Football betting stats for Saturday’s game. The Badgers are 10-3-1 ATS in their last 14 games in September. The Badgers are 12-4 ATS in their last 16 non-conference games. The Badgers are 0-6 ATS in their last 6 road games.
