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.
