Nebraska Wisconsin Betting Predictions – Nebraska, Wisconsin Look To Capitalize On Big 10 Championship Game Opportunity

Posted by Blake Frazier on 11/29/2012 6:25:24 PM

The road to the Big 10 Championship Game may not have been pretty for either of its participants this sports betting season. That won’t take anything away from the conference title shot for either the 12th-ranked Nebraska Cornhuskers or the Wisconsin Badgers when they clash at Lucas Oil Field in Indianapolis, Indiana this Saturday. While Nebraska won its final six games to clinch the Legends Division and its spot in the Big 10 Championship, Wisconsin got through despite losing three of its last four and finishing third in the Leaders Division, with both Ohio State and Penn State finishing ahead of them but ineligible because of postseason Bowl bans.

While both the Buckeyes and Nittany Lions would have likely provided a much tougher test for the Cornhuskers, head coach Bo Pelini understands the challenge that is ahead of them against Wisconsin. Nebraska barely squeezed out a victory at Iowa last Friday to clinch the title shot, in another contest that they were expected to win.

Pelini certainly doesn’t feel that the conference title game has lost any of its luster with both Ohio State and Penn State ineligible, and will need to make sure that the nation’s eighth-ranked rushing attack is at its best come this Saturday. Sophomore running back Ameer Abdullah added another 50 yards to his season total last week at Iowa, but the return of Rex Burkhead provided the spark that the team needed, as he rushed for 69 yards and the game-winning touchdown in his return from a knee injury. Burkhead and Abdullah will be asked to carry the offense, with junior quarterback Taylor Martinez a threat to both run and pass under center.

The Badgers’ offense won’t look much different than Nebraska’s, although senior running back Montee Ball handles the bulk of the load once again. A Heisman trophy candidate a year ago, Ball has rushed for 1,528 yards and 18 touchdowns this season, and can add to his NFL betting draft stock with another strong performance. The Badgers’ defense has looked solid despite back-to-back overtime losses to both the Buckeyes and Nittany Lions, conceding fewer than 18 points in regulation of both of those defeats.

College Football Betting Preview: Outlook & Pick

While Ball should make it difficult on the Cornhuskers, Nebraska has its own running back tandem that has been sparked by the return of Burkhead, and they should be able to finish strong. Wisconsin led the Cornhuskers by 17 at the half of their game in Lincoln back in September, only to allow Nebraska to rally with 20-unanswered points to complete the comeback for a 30-27 win. Pelini’s team has shown its resilience all season, and now they have a chance to clinch the Big 10 title against a team that really shouldn’t even be there.
