Conference Competition Equals UNDERS For Nebraska

The Big Ten is traditionally home to grinding football and Nebraska may represent that better than anyone. That’s why the UNDER is a safe play when Nebraska is in conference play, as UNDER has hit in the Cornhuskers’ past seven games within the Big Ten. Nebraska visits conference powerhouse Ohio State on Saturday.

Shark Bites
  • Ohio State is 4-10 ATS in its last 14 games at home.
  • Nebraska is 23-6 SU in its last 29 games after a loss.
  • Nebraska is 8-1 ATS in its last 9 games after losing the previous game in a matchup.

The Cornhuskers were undefeated heading into their last game, but they had a soft schedule. Though they ultimately lost to Wisconsin in overtime, another competitive outing or victory against Ohio State will prove Nebraska belongs in the top 10. The Cornhuskers defense has allowed just 18.4 points per game this season, but will be facing a Buckeyes offense that averages 42.6 ppg.

It has been a little tougher than expected, but Ohio State is 7-1 SU on the season. The Buckeyes have plenty of people questioning if they are a playoff team, considering their loss to Penn State and a squeaker win over Northwestern. The offense continued to put up yardage in those two games but has simply been unable to find the end zone like it could earlier in the season.
