Rovell’s Week 4 Vegas Report: “I Don’t Know Anybody Looking to Bet Notre Dame”
Kirby Lee, USA Today Sports.
The two games that bettors will undoubtedly be keying in on are the noon kickoff between Michigan and Wisconsin (-3.5) and the primetime showdown between No. 3 Georgia and No. 7 Notre Dame in Athens.
People are certainly lining up to bet the two headliners, but we’ve also heard some interesting betting activity on a couple of off-the-wall games on the Week 4 slate.
As of Thursday afternoon, no game is close to Michigan-Wisconsin in terms of total bets, so let’s start in Big Ten Country.
Are Bettors on Wisconsin?
Wisconsin has scored a combined 110 points against USF and Central Michigan. It’s the Badgers highest two-game point total since 2010 when they beat Indiana and Michigan, scoring 131 points. Things haven’t been running so smoothly for Michigan, who needed overtime to beat Army as 22-point favorites at home in its last game.
Wisconsin comes into the game as a 3-to-3.5-point favorite over the Wolverines and the Badgers have a little history on their side as they’ve covered the number the last three times they’ve been favored over Michigan.
