Analysis
I'm playing on Nebraska/Purdue UNDER the total. This is a generously high O/U number. I believe that it'll prove to be too high. To provide some perspective, when these teams met last season, the O/U line was 135.5. They combined for 133. Of course, much has changed over the course of a year. Still, in my opinion, not enough to warrant a 20-point swing in the O/U line. Despite scoring less than 80 in four of its last five, Purdue will put up a pretty big number in this game. Probably more than the 75 it scored last season. However, I don't see Nebraska having much more luck than the 58 it scored last season. Remember, that was at home. Now, the Huskers have to try and score on the road. The UNDER is 7-2 the past nine times that the Boilermakers had failed to cover their previous three games. During that span, the UNDER is also 4-1 when they played a game with an O/U line in the 150s. Look for this one to also prove lower-scoring than many will be expecting.
