The 2021 College Football has kicked off and we can see Nebraska Cornhuskers fight it out against the Illinois Fighting Illini. The team from Nebraska is at +3000 to win the Big10.
Game Between Illinois And Nebraska Will Start The Season
The game between Nebraska and Illinois sees the head coach, Scott Frost enters his 4th season in Lincoln. He has not put together a single winning campaign. The last season for the Cornhuskers saw a 41-23 loss to the team from Illinois, at home. It was the second win out of two for the Fighting Illini. It is expected that the Cornhuskers will do much better in this season.
We had Illinois as a 7.5pt home Underdog. This number was steady all through the summer but dropped to 7 sometimes before it picked up to 7.5 again.
Last week saw this number drop to 6.5 before moving to 7. The public seems to be backing the home team. 70% of the money is on the Fighting Illini to cover the spread. The betters in public are looking at the past where Illinois beat the Cornhuskers on the road, last season.
The Scott Frost management is considered to be a major disaster and the team from Nebraska has nothing special to offer. Theoretically, the Cornhuskers are way better than Illinois. You can see them play with urgency as they will avenge the loss from the previous season. The Cornhuskers are returning the 17 starters that won only 3 games last season and see a win total of 6,5 in the current season.
You might not get enough chances to back Nebraska but this is the time to do so. You should not pass on this chance to root for a trendy underdog in the form of the Cornhuskers.
