Who Oddsmakers Like: Mississippi State. According to oddsmakers at YouWager, Mississippi State is favored in tonight’s game, as the Bulldogs are getting odds of -4 points against Nebraska, where the spread opened and has held since. The over/under total sits at 142.5 points, where the total opened on Wednesday.
Who Public Bettors Like: Nebraska. As of early Wednesday morning, the Cornhuskers were getting 69 percent of the wagers as an underdog at Mississippi State.
Who We Like: Nebraska has been tough on the road this season when it comes to the betting window. The Cornhuskers are 8-3 against the spread on the road and the Huskers could be playing with a chip on their shoulder. They finished fourth in the Big Ten, yet weren’t even considered for the NCAA Tournament and now open the NIT on the road against Mississippi State, who finished seventh in the SEC. The Huskers have been strong at covering in general, going 22-8 against the spread. That means that bettors haven been overlooking them most of the season. I think they are being overlooked again tonight.
