    Default [PREDICT THE SPREAD] - Minnesota vs Nebraska

    Might not get an actual spread for a few days until itís more clear whether Martinez is playing... but initial reports make it sound like he will be OK.

    What do you think the spread will be next week?

    Iíll go with Minnesota -5.

    If it comes out at -2.5 or less call up the mortgage broker, refinance, and back the truck up to bet it all on the Gophers.

    Given how enamored people have been with Frost&Co Iím guessing Vegas makes Nebbie a 2 -3 pt favorite. If they made the gophs 3-5 pt favorites tons of money would come in on Nebbie and put them at risk for a big loss.

    Minnesota - Picked 5th or 6th in Big Ten West.
    Nebraska - Picked as a possible CFP team, and at worst a Big Ten West finalist.

    Nebraska by 37.

    Massey has us winning 35-29.

    65% Chance.

    If I understand how it works, the oddsmakers seek an even balance, with money being bet more or less equally on both teams. That way they are guaranteed to make a profit (because of the vig).

    With that in mind, I picture lots of well-to-do Nebraska fans with very deep pockets, lost in the exuberance of their win over Northwestern and basking in the memory of the Huskers thumping the Gophers last season, putting money down on Frost's team.

    I'm thinking it may open at Nebraska -2. Just a guess.

    Thatís presumably prior to todayís games.

    Given how well we played on a per play basis on both offense and defense and given how Nebraska played, that number will expand to a projected victory of 7 or 8.

    Can't see any way Nebraska is favored.

    MN at -5 is what I was thinking also; at least that's what I've been texting a few Husker fans I know. We'll see

    They don't do that all the time like they might for NFL games. At least they haven't much this year. They'll post a line

    Minnesota -5 sounds right to me.
