What’s the Betting Line on the Badgers?

There are only a few teams in the country as hot as Wisconsin in college football. After upsetting the conference and NCAA rankings, the Badgers look like a true dark horse candidate to win the 2019 NCAA Division I Football Championship.

The Badgers are currently a five-point underdog to Oklahoma in the all-important final matchup in the NCAA Football Championship Game.

The betting line on the Badgers opened at Oklahoma +5 and has since moved to Wisconsin -5. For the bettor, this represents a winning bet. The Badgers opened as seven-point favorites over LSU and are now 5.5-point underdogs. If you had placed the same bet on Wisconsin -5 on the opening day of the season, you would have won $100.

According to online bookmaker BetOnline, the over-under for the game is 52.5, which means the game should have a total of at least 53 points. For the casual fan, this is extremely exciting and makes for an interesting prediction game. However, for the serious bettor, things get a bit more complicated.

The Badgers Are 5-Point Underdogs to Win the National Championship

The Badgers are not listed as a five-point underdog to win the national championship on any major bookmaker’s website. This means there is significant odds against them winning the entire thing. To find these odds, one must look to smaller fish in the sea of online betting sites. For example, you may have to search for “badgers championship” on Bet365 to find the five-point underdog odds. Once you found them, you will need to log in to make the wager.

Which Badger Team Do You Trust to Win the Title?

Based on the NCAA rankings, one would have to say the Badgers are the best team in the country. They opened the season with an easy win over Arkansas and then dismantled the conference and NCAA rankings. This is especially impressive because they are a young team. The offense is led by an incredible quarterback in Jake Fromm who has impressed everyone with his ability to run the offense and his ability to make the right play at all times. He has also made a habit of coming from behind to win games.

On the other side of the ball, Jadeveon Clowney is having an incredible season. He leads the country in sacks with 15.5 and also has forced fumbles, knocked down passes, and even blocked an extra point attempt!

Another key factor for the Badgers is their defense. Led by their fierce defensive line who are always active, the Badgers are allowing just 3.3 yards per play this season, the best in the country. On the other side of the ball, the defense is led by former Texas A&M star Myles Gaskin. His strength and ferocity on the field have earned him the nickname “Mad Dog.”

All in all, it is a team to keep an eye on come winter holiday break. If nothing else, you can use Wisconsin as a ladder to get a better jump on your NFL Draft predictions. Based on what we have seen so far, it is easy to see why many are picking the Badgers to win the title. The only question is: will they pull off the upset and win the national championship?

To find out, they will have to beat Oklahoma in the Cotton Bowl on New Year’s Day. If that happens, it will be one of the greatest upsets in NCAA Championship Game history.
