The Minnesota Golden Gophers and Nebraska Cornhuskers face off on Saturday in a college basketball showdown at Pinnacle Bank Arena

The Minnesota Golden Gophers come into this game with a 13-11 record overall but they are really struggling having lost four games in a row. The last game for Minnesota against Northwestern and they had a terrible second half as they were defeated. Minnesota is averaging 73.7 points per game while their defense is giving up 73.3 points per game. Minnesota is shooting 40.2 percent from the field and 29 percent from behind the three point line.One big problem for this team is they are dealing with injuries and Gabe Kalscheur and Liam Robbins are both going to miss this game because of injury. Marcus Carr is the best player on this team and they are going to need a more balanced attack. 

On the other side of this matchup is the Nebraska Cornhuskers who sit with a 5-17 record overall and their only win in the Big Ten came earlier in the season against Penn State. Penn State has lost five games in a row but as of late they have at least looked a little more competitive. Nebraska on the season is averaging 67.7 points per game while their defense is giving up 74.4 points per game.Guard Teddy Allen has been the best player for this team averaging 17.1 points while shooting 45.1 percent from the field and 38.3 percent from behind the three point line.

Minnesota’s offense is an issue and that is going to let them down in this game. There is a lot of value with Nebraska's money line to get the job done. Back Nebraska money line.
