Nebraska Michigan Betting Predictions – Michigan Tries To Remain Undefeated

Posted by Washington Tucker on 1/8/2013 6:00:05 PM

The Michigan Wolverines have the look of a Final Four team and Big Ten champion this year. They don't want to get sucked into any more drama than necessary against Nebraska.

Nebraska Cornhuskers @ Michigan Wolverines – Wednesday, January 9    
Sport betting line: No line

Why Nebraska Will Win

If you want to make a winning bet on this game, it's going to be hard to find a lot of different ways in which Nebraska can come out on top, but there is one clear avenue for the Huskers in Ann Arbor against unbeaten Michigan: make the game ugly. Nebraska dragged Wisconsin – an annual NCAA tournament team – into the muck this past Sunday, limiting the Badgers to only 47 points. Yes, Nebraska scored only 41 points in its own right, but the larger point is that the Huskers were able to slow down an opponent, play at their preferred pace, and nearly pull off an upset in the process.

If Nebraska can play Michigan in the 50s, it will have a chance to stay close to the Wolverines and ambush the Maize and Blue with a late surge. New head coach Tim Miles does offer Nebraska the benefit of a fresh voice in courtside huddles and strategy sessions during games. The team consistently fell short under former coach Doc Sadler. Having the younger and more energetic Miles on the bench could breathe new life into this team, giving the Huskers the optimism and hopefulness that can lead to improved performance in the heat of battle.

Why Michigan Will Win

While NFL betting students assess various factors and try to offer a path to victory for the various teams in the NFL playoffs, the task of college basketball betting analysts is much easier on Wednesday night. Michigan is unbeaten at this point in the season, and the reasons are simple. The Wolverines have elite talent, with guard Trey Burke – only a sophomore – staking a claim to being one of the very best point guards in the nation. Burke's ballhandling skills, quickness, and overall playmaking ability give head coach John Beilein – one of the best and most resourceful coaches in the country – a high-end talent at the most important position on the floor. Beilein is noted for taking average talent and generating above-average results with it.

Now that Beilein has above-average talent, he has produced an unbeaten team, a Big Ten favorite that has every chance of getting a No. 1 seed in the NCAA tournament. This is Michigan's best team since the 1993 squad that reached the national championship game in New Orleans and lost to North Carolina on Chris Webber's infamous last-minute timeout. Michigan should not be remotely tested by Nebraska. These two teams exist in very different weight classes and own completely different levels of athleticism on the wings. Michigan can play above the rim, while Nebraska finds it hard to do so.

Who Will Win

This game is a mismatch. In Nebraska, this contest might be remotely close for the game's first 35 minutes. In Ann Arbor, Mich., the home team should flourish. The Wolverines should win this game by at least 18 points if not more.
