5-2 after Bucky covered again last week. Bucky is now 6-1 vs. the spread this season. They are 8.5 point favorites against Nebraska and the season long trend of respecting the UW defense/disrespecting the offense continues with an over under of 43.
Nebraska is a fraud. Their 7-0 record and #7 ranking are based on them beating up on the Bag of Deplorables of college football. Hard to say what their best win is. Maybe 5-2 non-power 5 Wyoming, maybe @4-3 Northwestern, or maybe @3-4 Indiana. Those are the best options. I won't get into who the worst team they beat is.
Bucky has been on the happy side of some Nebraska whoopings lately. If Bucky covers Saturday it will more likely be of the variety we saw last week at Iowa. Bucky's D is getting more and more banged up. They will at least be without their starting nose guard, nickel corner, and now Cichy is done. They may have 2 freshman starting on the offensive line if Maxwell can't go. This may be the week the injuries finally catch up with the Badgers.
I like Bucky to win at home in a nail bitter, but I'm taking Nebraska and the points.
