- The No. 18 Wisconsin Badgers are 6.5-point favorites OVER the No. 12 Notre Dame Fighting Irish.
- The No. 7 Texas A&M Aggies have (-110) betting odds to cover the 5.0-point spread against the No. 16 Arkansas Razorbacks.
MADISON, Wis. – Week 4 of the college football season contains two games between ranked opponents. The Notre Dame Fighting Irish play the Wisconsin Badgers and the Texas A&M Aggies play the Arkansas Razorbacks.
No. 18 Wisconsin Vs. No. 12 Notre Dame
Jack Coan, the current Notre Dame Fighting Irish starting quarterback, will travel back to Madison to play his former team, the Wisconsin Badgers. Despite being a high-ranked team, regulated sports betting sites list Notre Dame as the underdog on Saturday.
Wisconsin Vs. Notre Dame Spread Odds
Wisconsin Badgers -6.5 -110
Notre Dame Fighting Irish +6.5 -110
The Fighting Irish have yet to put together an impressive game, netting just a +20 point differential through their first three games against Florida State, Toledo, and Purdue. The Badgers lost their season opener to Penn State but rebounded with a 34-7 victory over Eastern Michigan.
Wisconsin more than likely should have beaten Penn State but turned the ball over three times, two of which came in the Red Zone. The team also missed a 25-yard field goal. If Wisconsin plays a similar game but cleans up these easy mistakes, they should be in good shape to beat Notre Dame.
The game has a 12 p.m. EST kickoff on Saturday and will air on FOX.
No. 7 Texas A&M Vs. No 16. Arkansas
The Texas A&M Aggies are the visiting team on Saturday for their game against the Arkansas Razorbacks, but college football betting sites list them as the favorites against their ranked opponent.
Arkansas Vs. Texas A&M Spread Odds
Arkansas Razorbacks +5.0 -110
Texas A&M Aggies -5.0 -110
The Razorbacks lead the all-time series against the Aggies 41-33-3, however, Texas A&M has won each of the last nine meetings dating back to 2012. During the current nine-game win streak, eight games have been won by a margin larger than five points despite three of the nine wins coming in OT.
This season the Aggies have beaten Kent State, Colorado, and New Mexico and have allowed a combined 17 points between the three games. The Razorbacks have wins over Rice, Texas, and Georgia Southern and are averaging 41.0 points per game. This may come down to which side of the ball proves to be more dominant.
The kick-off is set for Saturday at 3:30 p.m. EST with coverage on CBS.
