Wisconsin vs Ohio State Prediction & Pick
After a dominant 38-0 win against Illinois State to start the 2022 season, Wisconsin was upset at home by Washington State, 17-14. The Badgers bounced back with their largest margin of victory since 2014 in a 66-7 thrashing of New Mexico State last week.
Ohio State continues to get accolades as the Big Ten's apparent best team. The Buckeyes are only three games into a new defensive scheme, which now must prepare for the Badgers' run-heavy approach. After struggling to beat Notre Dame in the season opener, Ohio State bounce back to blast Arkansas State and Toledo by a combined 89 points.
Final Score Prediction: Ohio State: 34 | Wisconsin: 20

Toledo did rush the ball 33 times for 124 yards last week in a lopsided loss at Ohio State. The Buckeyes held out three defensive players in that game with minor injuries, however, so they weren't at full strength.
Wisconsin's offensive line still rates top-3 in the Big Ten along with their running game. Big running back Braelon Allen is a beast, and highly-rated Chez Mellusi gives the Badgers a top tandem in the backfield.
Wisconsin's defense is allowing just 247 yards per game, which ranks top-10 in the country. OSU's defense, talent and speed are all stronger, however, and the Buckeyes will clearly surpass 300 yards on offense. Even so, 18.5 points is a big number to be spotting a perennially solid Big Ten team, so we'll take the Badgers to cover despite their recent struggles against the Buckeyes.
