Wisconsin vs. Eastern Michigan Prediction for Week 1:
There are a few different routes you can go while betting on this game.
If you want to just bet straight-up winners for this game, bet the moneyline. That way, you don’t need to worry about how many points a team wins or loses.
For this matchup, I’m taking the Badgers and the points. After the defense’s showing last week, I feel pretty confident they can keep Eastern Michigan from putting a bunch of points up on Saturday. As a fan, I’d like to think the offense would like to come out firing after their dud of a game in Week 1. The Eagles’ defense is nowhere near as talented as Penn State’s, so I am confident that they will be able to move the ball and put some points on the board. Add in the fact that it will be a night game at Camp Randall, I think the Badgers have a good chance to cover the 26 points.
