The Cornhuskers are 4-0 ATS in their last 4 road games and 5-2 ATS in their last 7 games overall. The Red Storm are 3-8 ATS in their last 11 Thursday games. The under is 3-1-1 in Cornhuskers last 5 overall. The over is 4-1 in Red Storm last 5 overall.

The St. John’s Red Storm are the better team and being in Queens does help, but this line does feel a little disrespectful if we’re being honest. The Nebraska Cornhuskers are better than what this line suggests, and Sam Griesel is the sort of player who can take over a game and put fear into an opponent. St. John’s probably wins, but the Huskers can hang around. Give me the points.
