Ohio State Buckeyes vs. Wisconsin Badgers: Odds and point spread

Ohio State Buckeyes vs. Wisconsin Badgers: Odds and point spread With so many college football games each week, our goal is to bring you the odds and point spread on the most popular match-ups, in NCAAF Week 6 we will begin with Ohio State at Wisconsin. After a college football week full of upsets, the Buckeyes - Badgers meeting on Saturday is one of those "must win" games for each team. No.14 Ohio State Buckeyes (4-1, 1-0 Big 10) won their last game against Minnesota, but will carry the stigma of losing to the Trojans in September for the rest of the college football season and must be perfect to keep the dream for another BCS game attendance. And the No.18 Wisconsin Badgers (3-1, 0-1) literally dropped the ball in Ann Arbor last weekend, when they allowed Michigan to rally back from 19-0 in half time to win the game 27-25, much to the delight to the thousands of fans who couldn't be any gloomier at half time.

 You can imagine with this kind of performance coming out two teams considering leaders in the power rankings, that the odds makers will take on a defensive stance entering this weekend. No surprise that at the online sportsbook Bookmaker, the Ohio State vs. Wisconsin point spread is currently posted at -1 point chalk the Buckeyes with the total expected at 44 points, quite low for a college football game. The odds on the Buckeyes - Badgers game are also not as juicy as a bettor would like. Ohio State is the favorite to win the game, holding odds of -115 going to Wisconsin, although peanuts compared with the odds on the Badgers, paying out on just -105. If you are looking for a little more spread, you can visit the online bookmaker BodogLife, where the Buckeyes are listed at -2 points.

 Betting trends for these two college football teams indicate that Ohio State is 11-4 against the spread in its last 15 games on the road, but just 1-4 against the spread in its last 5 games when playing Wisconsin, although the Badgers are 2-4 ATS in their last 6 games. Also, the total has gone OVER in 4 of Wisconsin's last 6 games at home, while total has gone UNDER in 4 of Ohio State's last 6 games on the road.

 Except Wisconsin CB Aaron Henry, out of Week 6 with knee injury, no other player has been completely ruled out. The Badgers have listed wide receiver Maurice Moore and tight end Garrett Graham as questionable, while the Buckeyes have running back Maurice Wells, linebacker Tyler Moeller and tight end Rory Nicol as questionable for Week 6 college football.
