ESPN has a battle of unbeatens on Thursday night with Nebraska favored by those betting college football in the matchup against Kansas State.
And the Cornhuskers are not just favored by a little bit either. They are double-digit favorites in college football betting online on the road.
Nebraska Laying 12 Points – The Cornhuskers are getting a ton of respect on the betting line. They are laying 12 points on the road against an unbeaten Kansas State team. It doesn’t seem like many people believe the Wildcats are for real. Nebraska is number seven in the nation so everyone knows about them but not many people know anything about K-State.
Kansas State 4-0 for first time since 2003 – The Wildcats is unbeaten and they are going to have a very vocal and loud crowd on Thursday night. They will probably need every advantage they can get against a very talented Nebraska team. The Wildcats haven’t really been that impressive even though they are 4-0. They are going to have to find a way to contain a very explosive Nebraska offense if they are to have a chance.
Taylor Martinez – You may not have heard of Nebraska quarterback Taylor Martinez but he might be the best quarterback in the Big 12. He has rushed for 495 yards and completed almost 60 percent of his passes.
Thursday Betting Edge – The Cornhuskers are 5-1 ATS in their last 6 Thursday games. The Cornhuskers are 6-2 ATS in their last 8 road games. The bad news for Nebraska is that they are 3-7-1 ATS in their last 11 games as a favorite. The Wildcats are 6-1 ATS in their last 7 conference games. The Wildcats are 4-1 ATS in their last 5 games as an underdog. Kansas State has one of those bad trends that are a cause for worry as they are 2-5 against the college football betting online number in their last 7 games as a home underdog.
Total – Did you know that the Cornhuskers have gone under the total in 14 of their last 16 games in October? Seven of their last nine conference games overall have gone under. The last four Kansas State conference games have gone under and five of their last seven home games have gone under. The under sounds good when you are betting college football until you find out that 10 of the last 12 meetings in this series have gone over the total.
