I see where Balls Tate is getting 7.5 wins this year.
What the line tells me is that Vegas knows we're going to get to 5. They didn't build a city in the middle of the desert off of losing.Of course, Vegas is only trying to get equal money on both sides of the win total bet. However, they know Nebraska fans love to bet the over on the win total, so they are charging 130 to win 100 for those who want to pick the over.
In 2019, Vegas tabbed Nebraska at 8.5 wins. 2018, 6.5 wins. 2017, 7 wins. 2016, 8.5 wins.
2016 was the last time Nebraska's win total went over.
Never believed I'd see the day when anyone would be happy about a 6 win season. Didn't that pretty much get Solich fired? I hate it that other teams look at their schedules and automatically put a "W" next to Nebraska.
