Minnesota has alternated wins and losses over its last four games, as it looks to bounce back from a 31-24 defeat to the Ohio State Buckeyes as 11.5-point home underdogs last Saturday, while going UNDER the betting total of 56. The Golden Gophers are averaging 350.7 yards per game on the road this season, which is important to consider when making your Week 13 college football betting picks, but their defense has surrendered just 287.0 per contest in that situation. Minnesota is 10-2 ATS in its last 12 Big Ten Conference games.
The Golden Gophers will need to establish the run with running back David Cobb in this matchup, which can’t be ignored when looking over the college football betting lines, as he ran 27 times for 145 yards and three touchdowns against one of the best defensive fronts in football last time out. Quarterback Mitch Leidner has failed at time to provide balance offensively, especially in completing just 7-of-19 passes with two interceptions versus the Buckeyes. The school did earn a 34-23 victory as 10.5-point home underdogs in last year’s meeting in this series.
Nebraska is now 8-2 SU and 6-3-1 ATS through 10 games, as it dropped a 59-24 decision to the Wisconsin Badgers as 4.5-point road underdogs last Saturday, as it was out-gained by 463 yards on the ground. The Cornhuskers were glad to have running back Ameer Abdullah back on the field, as he rushed 18 times for 69 yards in Madison—giving him 4,296 yards on the ground since arriving on campus. Nebraska is 5-0-1 ATS in its last six games following a loss of 20 or more points.
The Cornhuskers defense put up forgettable numbers last time out despite recovering four Badger fumbles. Nebraska has one of the best players in the country in defensive end Randy Gregory, as he’s racked up a team-leading six sacks this season and 16.5 in his career. The stop unit will need to sure up its run-stopping capabilities, as it allowed 271 yards on the ground in last year’s meeting in this series.
Sports bettors will likely play the total, as the OVER is 5-0 in the Cornhuskers last five home games versus a team with a winning road record.
