WISCONSIN (25-5) AT NEBRASKA (18-11), 7:30 PM (ET)
Wisconsin comes into Nebraska on an eight-game winning streak with four
victories at home and four more on the road. Still, the Badgers are only 4-4
against the spread. However, most of the ATS losses came at home. They are 3-1
ATS on the road over that span with just one ATS road defeat since Jan. 22. On
the other hand, they are 1-6 ATS in their last seven at home.
Nebraska has been solid at home this year with just one loss - a one-point
defeat against Michigan. The Cornhuskers are an incredible 7-1 ATS at home in
The determining factor comes down to recent meetings. Wisconsin has beaten
Nebraska the last four meetings, holding the Cornhuskers to 46 points or fewer
in all four games. In fact, Nebraska has gone below the total in nine of its
last 10 games this season.
Look for another Wisconsin victory, both straight up and against the spread in
a low-scoring affair.
SPORTS NETWORK CHOICE: Take Wisconsin minus 2.5 points and under 131.
