What The Odds Say About The Ohio State Vs. Nebraska NCAAF Week 5 Matchup
The betting line for this game has moved plenty since it opened. Ohio State started -15.5 at MyBookie.ag, but over the past few days, the odds have climbed a lot.
The Buckeyes are now -18, and a half of a point might be added before the kickoff hits the clock.
Despite the line moving towards the favorite, 55% of the betting public is taking the Buckeyes on the road.
What’s Ohio State’s edge Vs. Nebraska?
Once again Ohio State looks like the best team inside the Big Ten. The Buckeyes have destroyed any opponent they have played after starting a little shaky in week one.
Granted, they haven’t faced any real competition, but still.
Top Performing QB
At 10/1 QB Justin Fields is a legitimate candidate to win the Heisman Trophy. Fields is currently listed third behind Bama’s Tua Tagovailoa (+275) and Oklahoma’s Jalen Hurts (+350). But he already has better odds than Clemson’s Trevor Lawrence (+1200).
We all know Ohio State lands any recruits they want. Yet, Justin Fields looks like a different QB from the ones that have played that position in the past.
Fields has thrown 13 touchdowns already this season without any interceptions. He looks extremely comfortable in the offense.
Big Spread To Cover
When trying to cover a spread as big as 18-points on the road is not only about the offense. The defense needs to help a lot.
Ohio State is allowing 9.0 points per game in the first four games of the season.
The Buckeyes also have one of the best pass-rushing units in the nation. They have recorded 19.0 sacks in four games; it is the third-best number of College Football. An aggressive pass rush comes in handy on the road.
What’s Nebraska’s Edge Vs. Ohio State?
Let’s be clear. There is no room for an outright upset in this game. That’s why the oddsmakers at MyBookie.ag listed a possible Cornhusker win at +590. It’s just not happening.
What we are trying to find out is if there is an edge on Nebraska’s side to stay in this game and potentially cover the spread.
The people at MyBookie.ag are giving Nebraska’s backers 18 points to spare and somehow the number looks slim.
Can Sophomore QB Keep Nebraska In The Game?
Sophomore QB Adrian Martinez has been a breath of fresh air for the Cornhusker offense. Martinez has tossed up 1052 passing yards and seven touchdowns this season. He has 172 passing yards more than Fields.
The problem with Martinez and the rest of the offense is they are about to face their biggest challenge to date.
Ohio State is filled with players that will land in the NFL after this season and the following one. It’s a tough matchup for the Huskers wherever you look at it.
Can Martinez keep Nebraska in this game? I don’t see how.
Ohio State Vs. Nebraska NCAAF Week 5 Prediction
In any other game, 18 points might sound like a lot, but in College Football and especially in a matchup involving Ohio State it’s not.
The Buckeyes are loaded with talent on both sides of the ball. They know a visit to Nebraska shouldn’t present a problem in continuing their path to the College Football playoffs.
So far Ohio State has played only early games. This is the first chance they will have to play during primetime on National Television this season. It’s the perfect scenario to showcase a sound win over an inferior team.
Forget about the 18 points. This matchup should end up with at least three touchdowns difference. Bet Ohio State -18.
