The final time Nebraska took the field against conference foe Northwestern, a beat down commenced to the tune of a 49-point blowout of the Wildcats.
Thats likely whats informing the line for Saturdays opener between your teams, as Nebraska opened as a double-digit favorite and currently sits at -10.5 at Tipico Sportsbook.
However, the sharp action to arrive on the matchup, occurring in Dublin, Ireland, suggests itll be considered a many more interesting than last seasons. While one bettor at Hard Rock Sportsbook threw $33,000 on the favored Cornhuskers ahead away with a win, SuperBook was on the list of sportsbooks to see sharp action for another side. Northwesterns line has since dropped from 13.5 to 11 points there.
The @SuperBookSports was on the list of sportsbooks that saw sharp action can be found in on Northwestern during the last 24 hours.
The Wildcats have been just as much as 13.5-point underdogs to Nebraska. The line is right down to Cornhuskers -11.

A bettor has placed a $33,000 bet at @HardRockSB for Nebraska to beat Northwestern tomorrow.
Would net $6,933 if Huskers win.

In accordance with Action Network data, the general public is split 50-50 on bets contrary to the spread, while 54% of the moneyline bets have been around in favor of Northwestern. And Nebraska has seen a more substantial share of the amount of money wagered.
It probably shouldnt be so surprising to see conflicting bets on a neutral-site season opener between conference and division foes who finished the prior season with exactly the same exact record.
Thats also probably reasonable in order to avoid the spread altogether and opt for the wiser bet because of this game to are categorized as 51.5 points, as our Blake Schuster already advised and 77% of the general public has backed.
