OVER 8.5 Wins (-125)
Second-year head coach Scott Frost is currently expecting big things from his squad in 2019. That is a guy who has established it going and knows how to win. For to eight wins is asking a good deal from a group that had four last time, but if anyone can do it, then trainer Frost is your guy.
As he needed a particular season on a team sophomore quarterback Adrian Martinez is at the top five in the Heisman Trophy Discussion, as he must be. He was 12th in combined rushing and passing yards and you can expect that statistic to improve. Martinez also passed to the most yards.
This Nebraska offense averaged 456 yards a game whilst putting up 30 points each game. The team returns seven starters on both offense and 13 starters. Wide receiver JD Spielman was the fastest player for to 100 receptions and 1,000 receiving yards and has been back.
Even the’Huskers defense certainly must fill a few holes but strides were made by them rather than quit in the second half of this season, especially on Frost. Nebraska gave up just 23 points per game in contrast to 37 on its first seven matches. Nebraska has impact freshmen such as defensive end Ty Robinson security Myles Farmer and linebacker Nick Henrick.
Despite the fact that they only won four matches, the’Huskers gave an unexpected game that was tough to Ohio State . They get the Buckeyes in your home, a game Martinez is currently eyeing. He actually outplayed standout quarterback and Heisman finalist Dwayne Haskins and had three touchdowns at the Horseshoe this past year.
That’s the match Frost, Martinez and the entire state of Nebraska can’t await. It is more than realistic to presume that Nebraska might be 4-0 going into their game of the year.
Aside from playing with Ohio State, the Cornhuskers schedule is quite favorable since they don’t need to perform Penn State, Michigan State or Michigan. The team they perform on the street will be. Additionally they on the road get Illinois (OVER/UNDER is currently 4.5), Colorado (3.5 is currently O/U), Purdue, with a new quarterback, and Maryland, whose OVER/UNDER is just 4. Nebraska has quite winnable house games versus the Jaguars of South Alabama and Northern Illinois.
I have them locked into seven wins along with three wins, so that they can remain healthy, they have the firepower and training to reach nine.
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
