Big Ten teams with an eye on the postseason meet up at noon ET when Jonathan Taylor and the No. 14 Wisconsin Badgers travel to take on the Nebraska Cornhuskers (4-5, 2-4 Big Ten). Scott Frost’s Cornhuskers need two more wins to reach bowl eligibility, while the Badgers (7-2, 4-2 Big Ten) remain alive in the Big Ten West, where they’re currently two games behind Minnesota. The Badgers are 14-point favorites in the latest Wisconsin vs. Nebraska odds, up a point from the opening line, while the over-under for total points is set at 51. Before locking in any Wisconsin vs. Nebraska picks, see the college football predictions from the proven computer model at SportsLine.
The SportsLine Projection Model simulates every FBS college football game 10,000 times, and those who have followed it have seen huge returns. Over the past four-plus years, the proprietary computer model has generated a stunning profit of over $ 4,000 for $ 100 players on its top-rated college football picks against the spread. The model enters Week 12 of the 2019 season on a strong run, going 109-75 on all its top-rated college football picks this season. Anybody who has been following it is way up.
Now, it has simulated Nebraska vs. Wisconsin 10,000 times and the results are in. We can tell you that the model is leaning under, and it’s also generated a point-spread pick that is hitting in well over 50 percent of simulations. You can only see the pick at SportsLine.
The model has taken into account that, despite losing two of their last three games, the Badgers still have the best player on the field in this matchup in Taylor. He enters the matchup with 208 carries for 1,259 yards (6.1 ypc) and 15 touchdowns.
He’s a matchup nightmare for a Nebraska defense that ranks 11th in the Big Ten against the run, giving up 173.4 yards per game on the ground. The Badgers are also a respectable 5-4 against the spread this season and 5-3 as favorites. The Cornhuskers, meanwhile, have been one of the nation’s worst teams against the spread, covering just once in nine games against FBS competition.
Nebraska, meanwhile, fell 31-27 to Purdue two weeks ago. The Cornhuskers’ defense allowed what had been a stagnant Purdue passing attack to put up 304 yards through the air and Nebraska has now given up 655 yards passing in its last two games.
However, Frost is hoping a week off will help his secondary recover and that extra week to repair should help starting quarterback Adrian Martinez as well. Martinez had a strong performance against Wisconsin a season ago, passing for 384 yards and two touchdowns without an interception while rushing for 57 yards and a score.
So who wins Wisconsin vs. Nebraska? And which side of the spread hits well over 50 percent of the time? Visit SportsLine right now to see which side of the spread to back on Saturday, all from the advanced model that has crushed its college football picks.
