Nebraska is 1-4 ATS in their last 5 road games and 1-4 ATS in their last 5 road games against a team with a winning home record. The over is 4-1 in Nebraska’s last 5 road games. Penn State is 9-0 ATS in their last 9 home games and 6-2 ATS in their last 8 games. The under is 4-0 in Penn State’s last 4 games.
Nebraska has had a very rough season and only has one conference win, while Penn State hasn’t had a ton of success, but has won three of their last four games. Penn State is the better team here and should win the game, but I like the over here. Nebraska hasn’t played much defense this season and I don’t see that changing here. Nebraska has also done a pretty good job of scoring, averaging over 72 points per game. I am taking the over.
