  • Wisconsin Badgers vs. Illinois Fighting Illini

Look, Wisconsin is probably not really one of the Top 25 teams in the country. But, Illinois is atrociously bad. The Illini are coming off an absolute butt kicking at home to the Purdue Boilermakers. Wisconsin look to bounce back with their 25 point loss at Michigan. Look for Jonathan Taylor to have a great game against the poor Illinois defense, and the Badgers keep the Orange and Blue out of the end zone more times than not. In the end, Wisconsin wins this game by 4+ scores.

Wisconsin Badgers -24 over Illinois Fighting Illini
