Nebraska Cornhuskers vs. Michigan State Spartans CashBet Odds Analysis

When Scott Frost was hired as Nebraska head coach, he had plenty to say.  Including the boast that his Huskers would impose their will on the rest of the Big Ten.  Unfortunately for the Big Red faithful, just the opposite has occurred.  By contrast, Mel Tucker had much less to say when he was the rushed hire at Michigan State.  But Tucker is showing far better than Frost.  Instead of whining about his plight, Tucker raided the transfer portal and demanded excellence.  A Week-3 College football betting stampede of Miami has caused gamblers to notice.

Nebraska Cornhuskers vs. Michigan State Spartans CashBet Odds Analysis

On this occasion, gamblers are taking note of Michigan State’s sportsbook improvement.  Also, there are concerns about a Nebraska letdown after their emotional Oklahoma loss.

Huskers Close But Still No Cigar

Last week, Nebraska got the cash in a 23-16 loss at Oklahoma as 22.5-point dogs.  The game went under the Betting on college football total of 62.5.  Now, Nebraska has a record of 2-2 straight up, 3-1 against the spread, and 1-2-1 over/under.  The Big Red ranks 25th for overall offense and 69th for scoring offense.  At the same time on defense, Nebraska ranks 61st overall and 26th for points allowed.

While not the Game of the Century, it was memorable and much closer than expected. Consider the Sooners were a three-touchdown favorite.  There were even reports that Nebraska tried to get out of the matchup to give its rebuilding program another year.  In turn, the Huskers were more than game.

Adrian Martinez passed for 289 yards and a touchdown for Nebraska, seeking its first win over a ranked team since 2015.  On the whole, the Cornhuskers fought bravely.  And their defense put up another solid performance. Nebraska had allowed seven points to Fordham and three to Buffalo in its previous two games. But the Cornhuskers will need to cut down on penalties and mistakes to compete in the Big Ten.

Spartans Will Themselves Back

Last week, Michigan State got the money in a 38-17 win at Miami as 7-point dogs.  Also, the game went under the bet on NCAAF total of 57.5.  Now, Michigan State has a record of 3-0 straight up, 2-0-1 against the spread, and 2-1 over/under.  MSU ranks 14th for overall offense and 30th for scoring offense.  Defensively the Spartans rank 83rd overall and 36th for points allowed.

Payton Thorne passed for 261 yards and four touchdowns.  Also, two of those scoring throws went to Jalen Nailor.  Kenneth Walker III rushed for 172 yards and caught a touchdown pass for the Spartans.
