Nebraska is 5-0 SU and 4-1 ATS through five games, as it comes off an impressive 45-14 victory over the Illinois Fighting Illini as 21.5-point home favorites last Saturday, while winning the statistical battle in each of those affairs. The Cornhuskers have scored 30-plus points in each of their first five games, which is important to consider when making your Week 6 college football predictions, especially since they’ll be aiming to avenge a 41-28 setback to the Spartans as 5.5-point home underdogs last year. Nebraska has covered the number in its last four road games. The Cornhuskers have a great chance of improving to 3-0 SU all-time when playing in East Lansing, considering they ran for 458 yards last time out—improving to 18-0 under head coach Bo Pelini when going over the 300-yard mark in that important statistical category. Nebraska is being led offensively by Heisman Trophy candidate Ameer Abdullah, who ranks third on the school’s all-time rushing list with 3,810 yards. The senior is just five rush attempts away from breaking Mike Rozier’s school record of 668 carries. Michigan State has won and covered the number in its last two games since suffering its only loss of the season to the Oregon Ducks on Sept. 6, as it looks to build on a 56-14 blowout victory over the Wyoming Cowboys as 28-point home favorites last Saturday. The Spartans have captured 18 of their last 20 games dating back to the 2012 regular-season finale, which can’t be ignored when looking over the college football odds page. Michigan State has gone OVER the betting total in its last six contests. The Spartans have scored 201 points through their first four games—the highest total in that particular period of time in program history, while they enter this high-profile matchup averaging 58.0 points at Spartan Stadium. Michigan State has put together a remarkable 41-11 SU home record under head coach Mark Dantonio, including wins in 26 of its last 31 games in front of its own fans. Sports bettors will likely back the Spartans due to the Huskers being 3-8-1 ATS in their last 12 road games versus teams with a winning home record.
