Minnesota is 5-1 ATS in their last 6 road games and 2-6-1 ATS in their last 9 Wednesday games. The over is 6-2 in Minnesota’s last 8 games. Nebraska is 6-1 ATS in their last 7 home games and 4-1 ATS in their last 5 games. The over is 6-2 in Nebraska’s last 8 games. The home team is 13-3 ATS in these two teams last 16 head to head meetings.

Nebraska limps into this game without a conference win this season, while Minnesota isn’t much better, only having two conference wins on the year. Nebraska gives up a bunch of points, but does average over 72 points per game. I think this is the time that Cornhusker fans have been waiting for. I like Nebraska to get their first conference win here.
