Rose Bowl Betting Predictions – Stanford Clashes With Wisconsin In Rose Bowl

Posted by Blake Frazier on 12/25/2012 7:27:42 PM

The sixth-ranked Stanford Cardinal certainly took care of business in the PAC-12 this sports betting season, including four-straight wins over ranked opponents to close out the year and clinch another conference title. While both USC and Oregon seemed to get all of the preseason attention, Stanford knocked off both of those teams in key wins and beat the UCLA Bruins twice to clinch the PAC-12 Championship. Next up for the Cardinal is a date with the Big Ten champion Wisconsin Badgers, which are back in the Rose Bowl for the third-straight season.

College Football Betting Line: Stanford Cardinal – 6.5

While the Badgers technically hold the distinction of being Big Ten champions, they are the first five-loss team in history to play in the Rose Bowl. Wisconsin technically finished third in the Big Ten Leaders Division, but since neither Ohio State nor Penn State are eligible due to NCAA Sanctions, it was the Badgers that knocked off Nebraska in the Big Ten title game and clinched their postseason spot.

The fact that Wisconsin didn’t have the best record in its division will only marginally curb the excitement for this contest, especially with the all-time FBS leader in rushing touchdowns and total touchdowns set to clash with the nation’s third-ranked run defense. Montee Ball rushed for 1,730 yards and 21 touchdowns in his senior season, and will look to finish his college career with another standout performance. Ball rushed for 202 and three scores in the Badgers’ blowout win over Nebraska in the Big Ten title game, as Wisconsin registered for 539 total rushing yards compared to just 101 passing yards.

Stanford will look to force the Badgers in to more passing situations with one of the nation’s top run defenses, while pounding the rock on the other side of the ball with a top running back of their own in Stepfan Taylor. Taylor finished with 1,442 rushing yards and 12 scores, as the Cardinal passing numbers aren’t that much better than what Wisconsin did this season. That means Taylor will also have to deal with some eight and nine-man fronts in this contest, and it won’t be easy against the Badgers’ 22nd-ranked rush defense.

College Football Betting Preview: Outlook & Pick

The Cardinal were very impressive this online betting season, rising above the rest of the PAC-12 and earning their spot in the Rose Bowl with an old-school approach to the game. Although Wisconsin wasn’t nearly as dominant in the Big Ten, the Badgers also rely on a heavy rushing attack and the ability to stop the run on defense, which sets up an interesting matchup. While Stanford has enough weapons that they should be able to earn a win, this will be a much closer contest than most expect with Wisconsin not getting nearly enough credit.
