Northwestern is 7-1 ATS in their last 8 Saturday games and 3-8 ATS in their last 11 games. The under is 6-2 in Northwestern’s last 8 games as a road favorite. Nebraska is 4-0 ATS in their last 4 games and 6-0 ATS in their last 6 home games. The over is 5-2 in Nebraska’s last 7 games. The road team is 4-1 ATS in these two teams last 5 head to head meetings.

Both of these teams have struggled in conference play, but Nebraska is easily the worst team in the Big Ten. The one positive note for Nebraska is that they have played their last four opponents tough, only losing by a combined 22 points in four losses. Nebraska is not good on the defensive end and I think Northwestern will take advantage of it.
