Here at Bang the Book, we are always keeping our eyes open for the best games to bet on each and every week. Of all of the games on the Week 12 docket, the one we are zeroing in on is the game where the Nebraska Cornhuskers host the Michigan State Spartans at 3:30 p.m. ET on Saturday, November 16th.
The UCLA Bruins will try and continue their climb up the rankings; moving to No. 16 in the latest AP poll after starting the season ranked No. 21. The Bruins opened their season with a 58-20 rout of Nevada as 20.5-point home favorites on Aug. 31. The total went OVER the 67.5-point line in that game. UCLA will come into this matchup well rested after building an early bye week into the schedule.
It’s the final year for the Legends and the Leaders in the Big Ten Conference. Last year both Penn State and Ohio State were ineligible for postseason play, but only Penn State is ineligible this season. The Buckeyes went 12-0 in their first year under Urban Meyer last year, and expectations are as high as ever in Columbus.
The start of the 2013 college football season is well over two months away but it is not too early to take a closer look at BetOnline’s futures odds for all the major conferences in term of winning the title this year. As part of an ongoing series, College Football Betting Trends is zeroing-in this week on the top teams in the Big Ten.
Nebraska comes into this game with a 10-3 record, but they can’t have much confidence after being thrashed by the Wisconsin Badgers in the Big Ten title game. The Georgia Bulldogs were one play away from being in the BCS Championship Game. Instead, they missed out on the BCS bowls altogether. This game has a lot of interesting little sub plots. Which team will come prepared?
Michigan and Nebraska both come into this game at 5-2 on the year. The big difference though is that Michigan is unbeaten in the Big Ten, while Nebraska has already dropped a game in the conference. These two teams have the inside track at the top of the Big Ten Legends Division. Nebraska will have a big home field advantage here at night. Will it be enough for them to get right back to the top of the division?
Nebraska and Ohio State are both coming off big wins in their Big Ten openers. The Cornhuskers scored 20 straight points to come from behind to beat Wisconsin last Saturday night. Ohio State won Urban Meyer’s Big Ten debut in East Lansing in a defensive struggle 17-16. The Horseshoe will be rocking this Saturday night when these two meet in a battle of two of the Big Ten’s best.
Bo Pelini actually played football for Ohio State, so this game might mean a little more to him than an average game. Pelini’s Cornhuskers had a disappointing early season loss to UCLA,
Big Ten foes that very well could be playing in the conference title game this year will meet for the second time ever and the first in Lincoln on Saturday night, where the Nebraska Cornhuskers will take on the Wisconsin Badgers.
The truth of the matter is that the season starts right now for the Badgers. All that we learned in the first month of the year about Wisky is that it just isn’t all that great.
