Wisconsin Badgers Football 2021 Season
The 2021 season was somewhat of a disappointment by Wisconson standards. The Badgers finished the regular season 8-4 and placed second in the Big Ten West. The season started poorly for the Badgers as they lost three of their first four games, but the team rallied to win seven of the next eight games to close out the year. Wisconsin finished the year with a Las Vegas Bowl win over Arizona State.
The Badgers finished the 2021 season on a high note, which has the Wisconsin faithful hopeful that they'll be able to take the momentum into the 2022 season. Wisconsin opens the new season against three nonconference opponents before opening Big Ten play in the Horeshoe against Ohio State. The West is up for grabs in 2022. Will the Wisconsin Badgers be able to sieze it?

Betting on the Wisconsin Badgers
There are a variety of options to bet on the Wisconsin Badgers in the 2022 season. Here are a few of the most common and popular bet types to consider.
- Point Spread
- Future Odds
Betting point spreads are wagers based on the expectation that a team will win or lose by a certain number of points. The Badgers went 6-11 overall and performed exactly the same against the spread. Here’s an example of how the spread works from a 2021 regular season game against the Minnesota Golden Gophers:
- Wisconsin -7 (-113)
- Minnesota +7 (-110)
In this situation, the Golden Gophers are 7 point underdogs against the Badgers. If Wisconsin wins the game by eight or more points, a $113 wager on the Badgers would earn a payout of $100. If Minnesota won the game outright or lost by six points or less, a $110 wager would net $100.
In this particular example, Minnesota beat Wisconsin 23-13. This means that Wisconsin did not cover the spread.
With a 9-4 overall record in 2021, the Badgers were a fairly strong team to back in moneyline bets. A moneyline wager is simply picking which team will win a given contest outright. Wisconsin was favored in each of its games in 2021, though, meaning that betting on the Badgers to win outright was not neessarily particularly profitable for bettors. Even though a moneyline is just a bet on who wins the game, not all moneyline bets pay the same. Here's an example of a moneyline bet using the same Wisconsin vs. Minnesota game from 2021:
- Wisconsin -300
- Minnesota +235
The minus (-) and plus (+) signs distinguish the favorite from the underdog, making Wisconsin the favorite in this scenario. Odds can be understood more clearly if you think in terms of $10 or $100 increments. A wager on the Badgers odds would mean every $300 bet nets $100. And it's the opposite for underdogs: Here the Minnesota moneyline was set at +235, meaning a $100 wager would profit $235 if they won.
Minnesota won this moneyline bet as they defeated the Badgers 23-13.
Over/under, also called point total, is a wager placed on the combined scoring of a single game. Bookmakers come up with a number and you can either bet that both teams will combine to score over that particular number or under it. Here’s how it works:
When the Badgers played the Golden Gophers in 2021 the over/under was set at 39 points. A wager on the over would require Wisconsin and Minnesota to score 40 total points or more to win. Betting the under is an expectation that the two teams would score 38 or fewer points. It's also possible for the bet to push, which would happen if the game finished with exactly 39 points scored.
With a final score 23-13, a bet on the under would have won in this particular matchup.
Wisconsin Prop Bets
Player props are ideal bets for those who love to play fantasy football since they just rely on the stats of individual players. The bet is simple: Pick a player, or players, select a stat category, and bet whether the chosen players will go over or under the designated line. Bettors also have the option to wager on season-long prop bets as well.
Some props you could make on the Badgers in 2022 include QB Graham Mertz passing completions, RB Braelon Allen rushing touchdowns, or WR Chimere Dike receiving yards.
A futures bet is a wager that will decided based on a result that takes place later in the season. Future bets can be made on both team and individual player outcomes. Some examples of Wisconsin Badgers futures for 2022 include:
- Wisconsin Badgers to win the Big Ten
- Wisconsin Badgers to win the National Championship (+3500)
- Braelon Allen to win the Heisman (+6000)
Because college football futures are so hard to predict, bettors can expect highly favorable odds with sizeable payouts should they win.
