*This preview was written by our staff writers not Rich Crew. However the analysis and pick are written by Rich*
I believe there is enough statistical data to support a total play here. The Oregon Ducks can score averaging 75.1 points per game on the season. Wisconsin has reached 69 or greater in regulation over their last 6 and the 140 posted on the board is 4 or 5 points under my number.
*Rich Crew suggested an over play at -140 and before we could get this up the line changed to 144, so this is only an opinion not a pick.*
