NCAAF Betting Markets: Wilson's impact felt in Wisconsin-Nebraska line
Tags: College Football Nebraska Cornhuskers Wisconsin Badgers Big Ten Nebraska at Wisconsin -10.5
Here's a pretty good indicator of how much Wisconsin quarterback Russell Wilson means to the pointspread. Back in early June, the Badgers were priced as 2.5-point favorites over Nebraska according to Golden Nugget's opening lines. Since then, Wilson not only signed to play but he and the Badgers have looked virtually unstoppable their first four games going 4-0 SU, 3-0-1 ATS and outscoring the opposition 194-34. The Cornhuskers meanwhile are also 4-0 but haven't had as easy a time of it with so-so performances the first three weeks against Chattanooga, Fresno and Washington (0-3 ATS) before finally cashing a ticket (-20.5) in last week's 38-14 win at Wyoming. Wisconsin opened as an 8-point favorite at CRIS and -9.5 at Pinnacle. Early bettors have keyed in on the home side with the line now up to -10.5 at most shops.
