Point Spread: -3½/-110 Michigan
Michigan vs Nebraska Free Pick January 18, 2018.
The Michigan Wolverines are sitting in third place in the BIG10, with a 5-2 conference record and a 16-4 overall record. They came out flat in their last game, trailing by 10 at halftime at home versus Maryland. They rallied in the second half, and led by seven with under two minutes to play. While they held on for the win, they didn't get the cover, perhaps falling victim to a classic let down spot after upsetting the Spartans in their previous game. Nebraska is just one game back of Michigan in the BIG10 standings, and the Huskers are 10-1 at home. All their wins in the BIG10 have come against conference bottom feeders (Wisconsin, Illinois, Minnesota and Northwestern). They are coming off a 64-63 win over Illinois, and they needed a three-pointer at the buzzer to avoid the upset. Michigan has won all eight meetings in this series dating back to 2012, and they covered the spread in five of those games. The Huskers have lost their last two home games against Michigan by a combined 49 points. The Wolverines are 9-2-1 ATS in their last 12 BIG10 games, and they have covered the spread in four straight road games.
