As of this writing, 55% of public bettors are laying the points with the Ducks.
OUR PREDICTION: This game should be a shootout and when both teams are expected to score, I'm drawn to the underdog. In this case, the Cornhuskers are getting nearly two touchdowns and after sophomore quarterback Justin Herbert threw for 281 yards and a touchdown last week against Arkansas State, I like Nebraska to keep things relatively close. Nebraska is 14-6 against the spread in its last 20 road games while the Ducks have failed to cover in six of their last eight home games.
