A surging Nebraska Cornhuskers will face off against Michigan State on Saturday.  The Huskers are a -3 road favorite in this one.  They are 5-1 over their last six games with one bruising loss there to the Wolverines.

Huskers "Dominance"

While the Spartans won the last game in this series back in 2021 when they were a -3 home favorite, the win was by a field goal.  Nebraska had won the two previous games as an underdog in both dating back to 2015.

How Accurate is the Line?

Michigan State with their 2-6 record Straight Up is ranked No. 80 on Sagarin while Nebraska just cracks the Top 50 at No. 49.  Sagarin gives us a number of 3.9.  The line opened at 4 and dropped to 3 across the board. Action was 86% on the Cornhuskers with the line moving in the wrong direction as -4 to -3 will deliver even more action Nebraska's way. 

-3 to -4 is on the money as far as we're concerned. And in this range with the line not falling below the 3, an accurate number tends to lean more towards the dog.

It is hard to get excited about a team (Michigan State) that has dropped their last six though.
