Iowa at Nebraska. Friday night lights.
Iowa is one win and one Wisconsin loss away from having a chance to play in the BIG-10 championship (where they will likely get destroyed by Ohio State. Yes, I said Ohio State as I am fully confident Ohio State will manhandle Michigan on Saturday, which will then punch their ticket to play in the BIG-10 chip.)
One would think that Iowa would not only be incredibly motivated to win this game but also be slated as the road favorites. Think again. Vegas has the spread listed at Nebraska -1.

Now as far as this game goes, I really don’t know what to tell you. Seriously, I don’t know what to do about this pick. Logic says take Iowa because they are the better team, but then again Iowa is notorious for playing down to their opponents. Nebraska, on the other hand, doesn’t really have anything to play for. It’s hard to see what motivates them and what gives Vegas the idea to make them favorites. Maybe it’s the home field advantage, maybe it’s because everyone can smell right through the fraudulent cologne that Iowa loves to wear.
I don’t know. Your guess is as good as mine. Either way, take your free money with PointsBet.
