Scott “The Bulldog” Rickenbach Free Pick CBB Game #606 Saturday Free Pick Wisconsin Badgers (+) vs Michigan Wolverines @ Noon ET – In typical contrarian fashion I am going with the Badgers in this one. Why? Because, as I have said many times before, the odds makers are not stupid! The Wolverines are a ranked team and are 17-0 this season. Wisconsin is a modest 11-6 on the season and yet this line opened at very nearly a pick’em on Michigan! Of course the betting markets are jumping all over the Wolverines here and the line has risen to as high as a 4.5 as of early game day morning. I am happy to grab all the extra line value here with the Badgers as a home dog in this one but, of course, it is not without reason. Wisconsin is 6-2 at home this season but has lost 4 of its last 5 games overall. One of their recent home losses came by 4 points against a solid Purdue team. Off back to back losses and having lost each of their last 3 meetings with the Wolverines, Wisconsin is more than ready for this huge opportunity to knock off a highly ranked Big Ten rival. Michigan off to a great start this season but their two Big Ten road games were at Northwestern and Illinois. The Illini are the worst team in the conference and, as for the Wildcats, they very nearly upset the Wolverines. Today I am forecasting the upset does happen but I am grabbing the points as insurance should the Badgers (just like Northwestern) fall a bucket short in this one. Free Pick WISCONSIN
