Nebraska Cornhuskers | Big 10 (West)

Overview

Conference Analysis
Win Division (+1010), Win Conference (+4200)
SSA Model Pick: None
Bo Pelini never topped 10 wins in a season at Nebraska and Mike Riley never topped 9. Expectations are high at Nebraska and the Nebraska faithful believe Scott Frost is the coach to take them to the promised land. While this will be a transition year for the Cornerhuskers expect them to compete and pull off a big upset or two.

Win Total Analysis
6 wins (+105/-125)
SSA Model Pick: Under (Low Confidence)
With all the hoopla surrounding the Frost hire the win total number for the Cornhuskers was posted at 6. The schedule is challenging for sure, but it’s hard to image a Frost coached Nebraska team winning fewer than six games. However, the model likes them at 6 or less and hence recommends an under on the Cornhuskers.
