NCAA gambling fans will have their choice of two of the top North Division contenders in one of the biggest NCAA football gambling matchups of the season.
Sports-Gambling opened with Nebraska as a 12 point favorite. Kickoff is at 7:45 PM Eastern.
The 7th ranked Nebraska Cornhuskers have a record of 4-0 straight up and 1-2-1 with the NCAA odds. They have gone over the total in 3 out of 4 games and are coming off a weak 17-3 win over 1-AA South Dakota State on September 25 as they were obviously peaking ahead to this one.
Nebraska’s defense is one of the best as it ranks 7th for points allowed. The offense is one of extremes as NU ranks 4th in the nation for rushing but 102nd for passing, to combine to rank 11th in the nation for scoring.
Quarterback Taylor Martinez stole the job is preseason and leads the Huskers in rushing with a 9.4 yards per carry average. Roy Helu and Rex Burkhead are both over 7 yards per carry.
The Kansas State Wildcats are 4-0 straight up and 2-2 with the NCAA lines. K- State is similar to Nebraska offensively as they rank 103rd for passing and 22nd for rushing. Daniel Thomas already has 628 yards rushing and 6 touchdowns with a 6.0 yards per carry average.
Quarterback Carson Coffman has been up and down with a 60% completion rate and a 5/2 touchdown/interception ratio. K State ranks 39th for points permitted and will be out to beat Nebraska at “The Little Apple” as the Huskers will depart the Big 12 for the Big Ten after this season.
The environment at K- State promises to be loud, hostile, and should give the Wildcats a lift.
Nebraska has paid out in 9 out of their last 13 games versus teams with winning records. Kansas State has gotten the money in 6 out of their last 7 Big 12 matchups.
K- State has gotten the money in 7 out of the last 10 NCAA gambling matchups between these two teams as the series has gone over the total in 10 out of the last 12 meetings including 5 out of the last 6 at Kansas State.
