Wisconsin vs Oregon (+3) – 5:00 PM
The Wisconsin Badgers (10-3) take on the Oregon Ducks (11-2) this afternoon in the Rose Bowl. The Badgers come into this game off of a loss against Ohio State 34-21 after winning their previous four games. Oregon dismantled Utah in the PAC-12 Championship Game 37-15 and have won their last two games.
Wisconsin was one of the most dominant teams in the country early in the season. After starting 6-0, including four shutouts, the Badgers have leveled out. After back-to-back losses to Illinois and Ohio State, Wisconsin won a close game against Iowa (24-22) and then three blowout wins against Nebraska, Purdue and Minnesota. The Badgers offenses is now 22nd in points per game thanks to their rushing attack (14th). Wisconsin’s defense has been very good this season as they are 10th in points allowed per game.
Oregon opened their season with a close-game loss to a good Auburn team (27-21). The Ducks then went on a nine-game winning streak including nice wins over Washington and USC. A late season loss to Arizona State 31-28 ended the Ducks playoff hopes this season. Oregon ended the season 15th in points scored per game. The Ducks’ defense has been highly underrated this season as they are eighth in points allowed per game. The Ducks are the 11th-best team in the country at stopping the run, which is key against this Wisconsin team.
Wisconsin’s offense is very one-dimensional as they prefer to run the ball with Jonathan Taylor. Taylor has been one of the best backs to ever play college football and is just 91 yards away from another 2,000 yard season. However, Wisconsin’s pass attack has struggled behind subpar play from Jack Coan at quarterback. The Badgers haven’t been as elite in the second half of the season as they were in the first half. Oregon is still playing at an excellent level. With an underrated defense Oregon is a great play here on both the spread and the moneyline. I think Oregon and their offense outperform Wisconsin and the Badgers struggle to catch up as Coan has a rough game against that Oregon defense. Look for the Ducks to win this one outright.
