Take Nebraska (#524)
It's been a sin of omission not to have Nebraska every single time they've hit the court for the last month. My clients and I have cashed a handful of tickets supporting the Cornhuskers, but quite frankly, this team has been as 'bet-on' as it gets since the start of Big 10 play; 11-1 ATS in their twelve league games.
And yet we've seen the 'wiseguy' steam pour in AGAINST Nebraska in early betting action on Tuesday. This isn't new or different -- $$ has showed against Nebraska on a consistent basis for most of this ATS run. The wiseguys keep fading this team and they keep losing'
I love this quote from Huskers senior guard Anton Gill, especially in a 'win and cover' pointspread range like the Huskers are in tonight: 'We've got to find a way to get it done'. And I'm not into moral victories. Those don't get you into the tournament.' This Husker program has only one trip to the Big Dance in the last 20 years (a first round loss to Baylor in 2014), and Tim Miles has them playing like a hungry, focused team.
Maryland has shorthanded since Justin Jackson and Ivan Bender got hurt. Their big three ' Anthony Cowan, Darrly Morsell and Kevin Huerter ' have been piling up minutes. In a blowout over Northwestern last weekend, that trio played 114 out of a possible 120 floor minutes; a clear indicator that the Terps depth isn't what it should be. That's bad news in a high energy setting like this one for the home team, especially considering Maryland's woeful performance on the highway ' one SU win all season, in OT, at last place Illinois. Fade the steam! Take Nebraska.
