The Nebraska Cornhuskers are the No. 10 team in the nation and beat then-ranked Michigan State with ease last week. The Northwestern Wildcats aren't a ranked team, and had to beat the Indiana Hoosiers last week just to break a five-game losing streak.
So it probably shouldn't surprise anyone that our partners over at Odds Shark have the Cornhuskers as heavy favorites this week against the Wildcats. Nebraska is currently a 16-point favorite, and has some serious momentum these days after knocking off the Spartans.
Expect there to be some serious scoring in this game, as the current over/under is set at 63 points. The Wildcats have really struggled on defense this year, so expect Nebraska's vaunted running game to, well, run wild this Saturday.
