There are reportedly a ton of bets on Wisconsin to cover at Iowa
Vegas has been doubting Wisconsin all year. The Badgers have been at least seven-point underdog in four games this season.
They won two of those games outright and covered the spread in the other two.
So are people finally starting to believe in the Badgers?
It certainly looks like it. There are reportedly a whole bunch of bettors who happily gave the 4.5 points for Wisconsin to cover at Iowa City on Saturday:

It was a surprisingly small spread to begin with. Originally a 3-point spread, the line surprisingly didn’t increase more with the amount of people jumping at that spread.
Will that provide a little more motivation for Iowa?
