💎 NEBRASKA +4.5 -110 ( 1u )

💎 NEBRASKA ML +160 ( .25u )

  • You can say that Illinois Big Illini are the more talented team and we seen them beat Nebraska in the only game they played against this team, but Remember Nebraska played them very tough and took Illinois to OT in that game! Dont forget, Nebraska hung in that game on the road as 10 point underdogs. The Cornhuskers has shooters, and they can get hot offensively to keep this big run going. Nebraska just lit up Indiana for 93 points and scored 85 points before that on the road in Michigan. This is a team who been very impressive in these Tournament games and have put on shows in back to back contests where guys can stay in a groove, Nebraska is a live dog in this spot. Give me the Huskers and the points and look for a outright win tonight also!!
