Behind the Line: Rutgers opens as a 30.5 point road underdog against Wisconsin

A huge spread for this weekend’s game

Rutgers at Wisconsin this Saturday, November 3rd.

Opening Point Spread (according to VegasInsider): Wisconsin -30.5

Gut reaction:

Wisconsin had high hopes for this season that included a possible National Championship. Those hopes have been dashed with a few losses already this season but they are still a supremely talented team with an absolutely monstrous offensive line. They are going to be out for blood this week after dropping a game against Northwestern last week although I think Rutgers coming off a bye will be huge for the Scarlet Knights. The blowout should be delayed by a quarter or two this Saturday.

If I Were a Betting Man:

I’m going to go ahead and take the Badgers -30.5 at home here. I think the score will be closer than most anticipate in the early goings but as the game goes on, the points will come in droves from the Badgers as their offensive line wears down the Rutgers front seven.
