2018 Wisconsin Badgers Betting Odds

NCAA Football Betting: The Wisconsin Badgers weren’t bad prior to Paul Chryst taking over. They’ve just been better and a powerhouse in the Big Ten since his arrival. The Badgers have improved their win total every season under the fourth-year coach. And that’s saying something when his first season produced 10 victories. And for a change Bucky could have the most potent offense in the conference in 2018 with 10 starters back from a club that amassed over 415 yards and nearly 34 points per game while losing just once. That loss was to Ohio State in the Big Ten Championship, denying the Badgers a trip to the CFP.

2018 Wisconsin Badgers at a Glance

Badgers National Championship Odds: +2656

Badgers Odds To Win Big Ten: +311

Badgers Regular Season Win Total: 10

The Badgers are the class of the Big Ten West and they have a clear path to another division title and trip to the league championship game. Bucky has won at least 10 games in each of Chryst’s first three seasons, topping out with a program record 13 last year. However, the season ended on a sour note with a loss to Ohio State in the conference championship.

We’ve watched Wisconsin destroy teams with a brutal defense over the years, but the 2018 squad has the talent to be one of the most explosive offensively. The group is led by quarterback Alex Hornibrook, who threw for 2,644 yards and 25 touchdowns while completing 62.3 percent of his passes. His 15 interceptions were a concern, but Hornibrook ended last season with 258 passing yards and four touchdowns in an Orange Bowl victory over Miami. The Badgers like to run the football and they have a good one in Jonathan Taylor, who set an FBS freshman record with 1,977 yards and 13 touchdowns in 2017.

The top four wideouts from a season ago all return. The quartet of A.J. Taylor, Quintez Cephus, Danny Davis and Kendric Pryor combined for 100 catches and 17 touchdowns. Cephus led the club with six scoring grabs despite missing the final five games of the season. The offense will need to carry the team until the defense fills several holes. A light non-conference schedule will allow the group to develop, but putting together another undefeated conference slate might be difficult with a road schedule that includes cross over games at Penn State and Michigan

Wisconsin wasn’t always the Big Ten power it is today. Original members of the conference when it formed in 1896 as the Western Conference, the Badgers have won or shared 14 conference titles with six of them coming since 1993 and five others before 1913. There were some lean years in between.

The Badgers never won more than nine games in a season and appeared in just six bowl games prior to the arrival of Barry Alvarez in 1990. It took three years for the Badgers to post their first ever 10-win season and first Big Ten title in three decades, capping off the 10-1-1 1993 campaign with their first Rose Bowl victory and a No. 6 ranking in the final AP poll. Bucky would win the Hall of Fame Bowl the following year for the first back-to-back bowl wins in program history.

Alvarez would claim two more conference titles, those coming in 1998 and 1999 when the Badgers were a combined 21-3 and won the Rose Bowl both years. Bret Bielema took over in 2006 after Alvarez retired and guided the Badgers to 12 wins. Wisconsin won three straight Big Ten titles from 2010 to 2012. The Badgers were just 4-4 in league play in 2012, but NCAA sanctions permitted Ohio State and Penn State from winning the title. Thus the Badgers were named champs. They proved a point in the conference title game, stomping Nebraska 70-31.

Paul Chryst took the helm in 2015 and the program has continued to win, going 34-7 in his three seasons with three bowl victories and a program record 13 wins in 2017.
