Which Squad Has the Edge in the Music City Bowl?

As college football bettors await the New Year’s Six prime bowl games, the Music City Bowl will take place on December 30. The contest will feature the University of Tennessee and Nebraska and takes place at Nissan Stadium, the home of the NFL’s Tennessee Titans.

Shark Bites
  • Nebraska is 24-7 SU in its last 31 games after a loss.
  • Tennessee is 7-2 ATS in its last nine games after losing the previous game in a matchup.
  • Nebraska is 5-2 ATS in its last seven games in December.

Nebraska looked like a Big Ten West favorite throughout the first few months of the season, but a 7-0 start has been erased at this point. The Cornhuskers suffered a 23-17 loss to Wisconsin and got hammered 62-3 by Ohio State before closing things out with a setback to Iowa to end the campaign on a sour note.

Tennessee is not exactly pumped to be in this game. This was supposed to be Tennessee’s year, but things didn’t go as planned. Despite beating Florida and Georgia, losses to Vanderbilt, South Carolina and Texas A&M dashed any potential playoff hopes for the Volunteers.

When the Vols face good teams, the OVER is paying out. The OVER is 8-0 in Tennessee’s last eight against teams with winning records.
