Tomorrow night, the Fighting DeChellises will have to pick up the pieces and try to pull off the mother of all Big Ten upsets (okay, it’s going to be difficult to top Iowa upsetting Michigan State, but I digress.) when they host Wisconsin and their newly armed soulja boy of a coach in Bo Ryan. Right now the Badgers are favored by 5 points according to most sports betting sites, so Rants From The District and I are going to work with that number.
Thanks to the whole team playing as if they all attended “The Shaquille O’Neal School Of Free Throw Shooting” , we managed to find a new way to snatch defeat from the jaws of victory against Minnesota, ruining my perfect record in the contest. Speaking of which, here’s an update on our records:
Happy Hour Valley 5-1
Rants From The District 4-2
As for the game: While I don’t think we’re headed for a tailspin despite our great collapse against Minnesota, I don’t see us getting back on the winning track in this one. I think we will make a game out of it, but in the end Wisconsin’s ability to rebound on the defensive end and cause turnovers will spell doom for us. Plus, did I neglect to mention their shooting guard, Michael Flowers, nailed a game-winning three on the road at Texas? Wowzers! Talk about ice water in the veins…
I’m taking the Badgers to not only win, but to cover the spread in doing so…End of story.
