The Plugs Game Prediction

💎 NEVRASKA +4.5 -110. ( 1u )

  • I know that this Iowa team has been playing some good ball recently, I know they are probably the more talented team and that they're 8-1 SU at home, so trust me, I can understand them getting the edge from oddsmakers and the live from the public in this game. However, the Cornhuskers have more than proved themselves against good teams this year and have held their own in big games this season, and they're one of the best defensive teams in the power five conferences in my opinion. Nebraska is not going to make this easy for Iowa tonight or anybody this season for that matter! This Nebraska team is still top-100 in points allowed and top-30 in field goal percentage allowed. Nebraska has value in the underdog role. Give me the Cornhuskers as the road dog here and let's look for a possible upset!
