Nebraska Huskers Bookie News Aug 20: Seeing 80 Percent of Public Love Wk 1

The Nebraska Cornhuskers look like a team limping into the 2017 College Football season but don’t tell that to the gamblers who are overwhelmingly choosing them over Arkansas State in Week 1.

80 percent of those betting this game were backing Nebraska as a -16.5 favorite.  This one keeps dropping from -20 and, in a perfect world where the House always wins, Arkansas State should probably cover here. Bookies probably aren’t scared by Nebraska yet though they will certainly want to boost results through the use of Price Per Head software solutions.

The last time Nebraska faced Arkansas State in 2012, the Huskers beat them by 29 points.

There are those who believe this Huskers team could be pretty good despite their late season implosion in 2016 following a 7-0 start and peak number 7 ranking back in October, and this belief might be prompting the current reaction from sports bettors. 

”Some of the things that happened last season stick with you, and it’s important to think about that,” the junior defensive lineman said. ”We didn’t accomplish what we wanted to accomplish last season. We’ve got everything in our head from last season. We’re going to push it behind us here in the fall, but it’s something that’s motivating.”

Former Connecticut head coach Bob Diaco is the new defensive coordinator

Diaco dumped the 4-3 base alignment and installed his 3-4. Stoltenberg, who moved from end to nose tackle, is among the players that switched positions. 

Tulane transfer Tanner Lee won the quarterback’s job in the spring and will take over for four-year starter Tommy Armstrong Jr. The Huskers return experience at running back and on the offensive line but must replace three of the top four receivers.

”The fact we don’t have a quarterback that has played a down for Nebraska yet, I don’t know how that narrative sounds in general,” coach Mike Riley said. ”But that’s where we are. I do have a lot of faith and am very interested in what this is going to look like going forward.”

The Super Bowl hangover didn’t affect the Kansas City Chiefs in their Week 1 rout of the Houston Texans. If anything that championship only inspired Patrick Mahomes to accomplish more.
