Minnesota vs. Nebraska Pick

Minnesota vs. Nebraska Predictions Against The Spread 12/5/17

Can No. 14 Minnesota pick up a sizable road win in Big Ten play when it takes on Nebraska tonight at 9PM ET?

According to oddsmakers at Bovada.lv, Minnesota is favored on the road tonight, as the Golden Gophers are getting odds of -8.5 points against Nebraska. The over/under total for the game has been set at 151.5 points. Tonight’s game takes place from Pinnacle Bank Arena in Lincoln, Nebraska and will air live on the Big Ten Network.

Minnesota opened up conference play on Sunday with an 89-67 win over Rutgers. The Golden Gophers are 8-1 on the season while going 6-2 against the spread. They also covered in their lone road game. Minnesota is scoring 89.4 points per game on offense while allowing 71.2 per game on defense. The Gophers are being led by Jordan Murphy, who is averaging 21 points and 12.9 rebounds per game. Nate Mason is adding 15.2 points, 4 rebounds and 4.6 assists per contest.

Nebraska is coming off an 86-57 loss at Michigan State on Sunday to open up Big Ten play. The Cornhuskers are 6-3 on the season while going 4-5 against the spread. They are 3-2 against the spread at home. Nebraska is putting up 73.6 points per game on offense while allowing 71 points per game on defense. James Palmer Jr. is posting 14.3 points and 3.8 rebounds per game to lead the Huskers while Isaac Copeland is averaging 12 points and 6.3 rebounds per game.

Bet on Minnesota vs. Nebraska

The home team has won eight straight meetings ins this series, covering the spread in all eight victories. Despite that, I like Minnesota on the road tonight. Nebraska is 0-6 against the spread in its last six conference games and 4-10 ATS overall. Minnesota has covered the spread in nine of its last 12 conference games and in four of its last five on the road. The public betting is strongly with Minnesota on the road and I agree tonight.
