Huskers Double Digit Chalk vs Buckeyes

The Cornhuskers will try to rebound from a brutal loss at Wisconsin when they host the Ohio State Buckeyes in college football wagering action.

Husker backers have not been rewarded lately as Nebraska is 1-5 ATS in its past 6 games and 1-6 ATS in its past 7 games at home. Ohio State meanwhile has been money in the bank on the highway, rolling to a 11-4-1 ATS run in its last 16 games on the road.

It's the first Big Ten meeting between these marquee programs and the Buckeyes struggling offense may not be able to dent a lame Husker defense.
