OVER 8.5 Wins (-125)
Second-year head trainer Scott Frost is expecting big things. This is a guy who knows how to win and has proved it moving 13-0 as a player while at Nebraska, and also as a head coach. For to eight wins is currently asking a lot but coach Frost is your man, if anybody can do it.
As he had a time on a team, sophomore quarterback Adrian Martinez is in the top five at the Heisman Trophy Discussion, as he must be. He was 12th in the nation in combined passing and rushing yards and you’ll be able to anticipate that statistic only to enhance. Martinez passed to the most yards.
This Nebraska crime won 456 yards a game when setting up 30 points a game. The group returns seven starters on offense and 13 novices overall. Wide receiver JD Spielman has been the quickest player in history for to 100 receptions and 1,000 receiving yards and has been rear.
Even the’Huskers defense must fill several holes but they did make strides and never stop in the second half of the season, particularly on Frost. Nebraska gave up only 23 points a game compared to 37 on its first seven games. Coming in to bolster the defense, Nebraska has affect freshmen like defensive end Ty Robinson, security Myles Farmer and linebacker Nick Henrick.
Despite the fact that they won four matches, the’Huskers gave Ohio State an game that was tough , just losing by five points. They get exactly the Buckeyes in your home, there is a game Martinez eyeing. He actually outplayed Heisman finalist Dwayne Haskins and standout quarterback and had three touchdowns at the Horseshoe this past year.
That is the sport Frost,” Martinez and the state of Nebraska can’t wait for. It is more than reasonable to presume that Nebraska might be 4-0 going into their match of this year.
Aside from playing Ohio State, the Cornhuskers schedule is favorable since they do not have to play with Michigan State Michigan or Penn State. The toughest team they perform on the street is. Additionally they on the road get Illinois (OVER/UNDER is currently 4.5), Colorado (3.5 is O/U), Purdue, who has a new quarterback, and Maryland, whose OVER/UNDER is only 4. Nebraska also has winnable home games vs the Jaguars of Northern Illinois and South Alabama.
I have them locked to seven wins with three additional wins, so they still have coaching and the firepower to reach nine, perhaps 10 wins that they can 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
