Book it: This week’s free college football pick (Indiana at Wisconsin)

The Hoosiers suffered a tough blow last week when they lost QB Michael Penix Jr. for the season with an ACL injury. Wisconsin, meanwhile, hasn’t been able to catch many breaks this season with regards to just being able to get on the field. The Badgers have had three games canceled because of COVID, including last week’s game against Minnesota.

This means Wisconsin will not be eligible for the Big Ten championship game because it won’t have six games. The Badgers are coming off a 17-7 loss to Northwestern, which leads the Big Ten West, and you know they’ll be itching to play and rebound from that loss.

The line in this one is pretty big at Wisconsin -14, but you can buy the line down to -13 for -124. Go ahead and do that because you’ll still get a good return and some safety at less than two touchdowns.

Indiana has a good defense, but look for the Badgers to take out some frustration and cover the number because the Hoosier offense likely will struggle.

The pick: Wisconsin -13 (buying down from -14 for -124)

Prediction: Wisconsin 30, Indiana 16

Season record: 7-4-1
