Wisconsin is favored by more than a touchdown against Army this Saturday.

The Badgers and Black Knights will meet Saturday night in Madison at Camp Randall, and it’s going to be one hell of a non-conference game. (RELATED: David Hookstead Is The True King In The North When It Comes To College Football)

Yet, oddsmakers don’t expect it to be super close. The line opened at -10 in favor of Wisconsin at Circa Sports.

For those of you who don’t know, the Black Knights are a very good football team, and they’re currently 4-1.

Yes, they’re a service academy, but you’re fooling yourself if you don’t think they can play football. Army has a hell of a team and has for a few years now.

They give everyone a battle.

The other problem is that they run the triple option, which teams almost never see. That makes it difficult to prepare for, especially on only a week of practice.

However, Wisconsin’s elite defense should be more than competent enough to bottle up Army. The question is whether or not we can score, and that’s simply a question I don’t have an answer to right now.

I’m going to have to spend some more time thinking about Wisconsin at -10 before making a decision. It’s a tough call, but make sure to catch the game at 8:00 EST on BTN!
