Nebraska is 4-1 ATS in their last 5 games. The over is 4-1 in Nebraska’s last 5 games. Purdue is 1-4 ATS in their last 5 Friday games and 0-4 ATS in their last 4 games. The over is 26-11 in Purdue’s last 37 home games. The home team is 7-3 ATS in these two teams last 10 meetings.
These teams are headed in opposite directions this season and Purdue should win the game easily. Nebraska has played Illinois, MSU, and OSU somewhat tough, but did lose by 28 points to Rutgers. Purdue has taken care of business but did have some issues against Penn State. I like Purdue to win the game, but Nebraska to cover.
