Ohio State vs Nebraska Betting Prediction

Nebraska is going to find success here. Nebraska is averaging 78.3 points and they are going to have no issue running up the score here. Ohio State has been a fine offensive team, but on the road they aren’t as good, and they aren’t going to find as much offensive success here. The Cornhuskers scoring and the lack of scoring by Ohio State will be the difference here. Back Nebraska against the spread.
