OVER 8.5 Wins (-125)
Second-year head coach Scott Frost is expecting big things from his squad in 2019. That is a man who has proved it in Central Florida, going 13-0 as a head coach, also as a player while in Nebraska and knows how to win. To get to eight wins is asking a good deal but trainer Frost is your guy, if anyone can do it.
Sophomore quarterback Adrian Martinez is in the top five at the Heisman Trophy Chat, as he should be, as he had a season on a team that is bad. He was 12th in combined passing and rushing yards and you can anticipate that statistic to enhance. Martinez also passed for the most yards.
This Nebraska crime won 456 yards a game while putting up 30 points a match. The group returns seven starters on offense and 13 starters entire. Wide receiver JD Spielman was the quickest player to get to 100 receptions and 1,000 receiving yards and is straight back.
The’Huskers defense certainly must fill some holes but strides were made by them and never quit in the second half of the year, particularly on Frost. In the past five matches, Nebraska gave up just 23 points a game compared to 37 on its first seven matches. Coming in to bolster the protection, Nebraska has influence freshmen like defensive end Ty Robinson, safety Myles Farmer and linebacker Nick Henrick.
Although they won four games, the’Huskers gave Ohio State an unanticipated game that was tough , just losing by five factors. They get the Buckeyes in your home, there is a game Martinez currently eyeing. He really outplayed Heisman finalist Dwayne Haskins and Buckeye standout quarterback and had three touchdowns at the Horseshoe.
That is the sport the entire state of Nebraska and Frost,” Martinez can’t wait for. It is more than reasonable to think that Nebraska may be 4-0 going into their match of this year.
Aside from playing Ohio State, the Cornhuskers schedule is favorable since they don’t have to play Michigan State, Michigan or Penn State. The team they play on the road is. Additionally they on the road receive Illinois (OVER/UNDER is 4.5), Colorado (3.5 is currently O/U), Purdue, who has a new quarterback, and Maryland, whose OVER/UNDER is just 4. Nebraska also has winnable non-conference home games vs the Jaguars of Northern Illinois and South Alabama.
I have them locked to seven wins with three other wins that were possible, so they still have the firepower and training to reach nine, maybe 10 wins, that they could remain healthy.
1 – South Alabama
2 – Colorado
3 – Northern Illinois
4 – Illinois
5 – Ohio State
6 – Indiana
7 – Purdue
8 – Maryland
9 – Iowa
1 – Northwestern
Two – Minnesota
3 – Wisconsin
