Nebraska finally won their first game in the Big Ten two games ago against Penn State, and they were competitive for most of the game against Maryland on Tuesday, before struggling late and losing. Nebraska on the season is averaging 58.6 points per game while their defense is giving up 75 points per game. Teddy Allen has been the best player this season for Nebraska averaging 16.6 points while shooting 42.9 percent from the field.
On the other side of this matchup is the Maryland Terrapins who have won two games in a row.and the defense has been strong in each of the last two games. Maryland is averaging 67.9 points per game while their defense is giving up 65.7 points per game.

Nebraska 3-7 against the spread in their last 10 road games. Nebraska is 9-20 against the spread in their last 29 games overall. Maryland is 2-9 against the spread in their last 11 road games.
Maryland is going to have no issue running up the score in this game again and that will be the difference in this game. Look for Maryland to come away with a win and a cover of the spread. In terms of the total I expect Nebraska is going to struggle to score enough that the under will cash.
