Nebraska has won three games in a row since suffering its lone defeat to Michigan State, which is important to consider when making your Week 12 NCAA football betting picks, as it returns to the field after enjoying a bye. The Cornhuskers have received steady play from dual-threat quarterback Tommy Armstrong Jr., who moved into the No. 9 position on the school’s single-season total offense list with 2,398 yards through nine affairs. Nebraska is 2-3 SU and 3-2 ATS as underdogs of 3.5 to 10 points the last two-plus seasons, with the UNDER going 3-2 in that situation.
The Cornhuskers have split their eight all-time meetings with the Badgers, which can’t be ignored when looking over the NCAA football betting lines, as they look to avenge a humiliating 70-31 defeat as three-point road favorites in 2012. Nebraska is just a single victory away from reaching nine wins for the seventh straight season under head coach Bo Pelini. The program is the only one in the Big Ten with a winning conference record in each of the previous three seasons.
Wisconsin has gone 4-0 SU and 3-1 ATS over its last four games, as it comes off a 34-16 victory over the Purdue Boilermakers as 16.5-point road favorites last Saturday—capturing the statistical battle by at least 210 yards in each affair over that span. The Badgers are allowing 251.1 yards per game this season, as they limited the Boilermakers to just 26 rushing yards on 26 carries last time out. Wisconsin is 4-3 SUATS as favorites of 3.5 to 10 points since the start of the 2012 campaign, with the UNDER cashing in five of those seven opportunities.
The Badgers have one of the best players in the country in Melvin Gordon, who has gained 100 or more yards on the ground in eight of nine games, while he accumulated 249 all-purpose yards last week. Gordon has hit pay dirt in every contest this season, and has multiple scores in six of his last seven affairs. Wisconsin is hoping that quarterback Joel Stave can build off his most recent performance—going over the 200-yard passing mark for the first time in 2014 and eighth time in his career.
Sports bettors will likely back the Cornhuskers due to their 6-0 ATS mark in their last six true road games.
