Trend of the Week: Ohio State vs. Wisconsin

Trend

Bet the under in windy games.

Context

The Big Ten has four teams ranked in the AP Poll Top 10 for the first time since the 1999 preseason poll. Two of those squads, Ohio State and Wisconsin, square off on Saturday night.

The Badgers have already beaten two top-10 teams, No. 5 LSU and No. 8 Michigan State, but the Tigers and Spartans may have been overrated. Ohio State is definitely not. The Buckeyes are the only team in the country that rank in the top five in both total offense and total defense.

Is Ohio State ready for the hostile road environment at Camp Randall? Paul Chryst’s crew has allowed just seven touchdowns all season and is the best defense J.T. Barrett and Urban Meyer’s offense has faced.

With such an intriguing matchup we know you are tempted to bet a side.

However, the real play is on the under. The weather forecast calls for high winds in excess of 13 mph. These windy conditions force teams to run the ball leading to low scoring games.

Helping the cause are two stingy defenses. Ohio State is allowing 10.8 points per game (2nd in the country) and Wisconsin is surrendering just 12.2 points (4th best among FBS teams).

Like many of our Pro Systems, this goes against the public. Square bettors love taking the over; it is more fun to cheer for points to be scored than hoping each team punts the ball.

High winds, good defenses and going against the public are a perfect recipe for taking the under when Ohio State and Wisconsin play Saturday night.
