Nebraska is typically a heavily wagered on team each year despite their likelihood of winning. 

This year, the consensus among experts is that the Cornhuskers will win at least 10 regular season games.   The oddsmakers share this consensus but at a steep price for bettors, -150. 

Mark Ross of AthlonSports.com:

Other than the rematch with UCLA in September, Nebraska doesn't really face a tough test until Northwestern comes calling the first Saturday in November. The Cornhuskers have more than enough offense to get by the Bruins at home and run out to a 7-0 start. While I think the Wildcats and Wolverines will be able to take advantage of an inexperienced defense, the Huskers' only remaining road game is against a Penn State team that lost a lot from last year's surprise team. As long as Bo Pelini can keep his temper in check and Taylor Martinez doesn't make too many mistakes, this team is capable of racking up 10 wins in the regular season alone.

Pete Fiutak of Scout.com observed:

With the defensive problems, and with almost the entire front seven needing to be replaced, the coaching staff can downplay the expectations by correctly pointing out just how many big adjustments need to be made. Meanwhile, the Huskers could sneak up on everyone and slowly and somewhat quietly build up the record while the new starters can start to figure out what they’re doing.
