College Basketball Betting Trends

Nebraska

The Cornhuskers are 4-1 ATS in their last five games as an underdog. Nebraska is 1-6 ATS in its last seven Tuesday games.

Ohio State

The Buckeyes are 7-2 ATS in their last nine games as a home favorite. Ohio State is 0-4 ATS in its last four games overall.

Prediction:

Something has to give for the Buckeyes as they are a very talented team more representative of what they were doing prior to this rough stretch the last four games. Ohio State is huge favorites tonight, so an impressive get right performance might still mean it doesn't cover the spread. The Cornhuskers have not won a road game this season, but did take Indiana to overtime. With how OSU has struggled the last couple weeks, I'd rather take the points.
