Neither team is coming in real strong at the betting window, but Nebraska hasn’t had much success at home recently either. They have lost three of their last four at home, including an 11-point loss to Michigan State a week ago. Wisconsin has won seven straight, but not been really dominating for the most part. Still, the defense is good enough that it should keep Nebraska from putting up a big total. From there, look for Happ, Koenig and Nigel Hayes to lead the Badgers to a cover.
