Nebraska vs. Indiana,

Score: 47 - 76
Point Spread: +23½/-105 Nebraska
The Nebraska Cornhuskers are simply catching way too many points against the Indiana Hoosiers tonight. I believe Nebraska is one of the most underrated teams in the country, and it will be a profit maker from here on out.
While Nebraska is just 3-8 SU in Big Ten play, it is a very profitable 7-4 ATS in those 11 contests. It has not been prone to the blowout, either. It has not lost any of its last 10 Big Ten games by more than 19 points. It is 3-1 ATS in its last three games overall, which includes blowout victories over Northwestern (64-49) and Penn State (67-53).
Indiana remains the No. 1 team in the country, which means it has a big target on its back. Off a huge 81-68 win at Ohio State on Sunday, the Hoosiers are certainly in a letdown spot tonight as they return home to face Nebraska. They won't be motivated enough to win this game by 24-plus point.
This play falls into a system that is 72-36 (66.7%) ATS since 1997. It tells us to bet on home favorites of 20 or more points (INDIANA) - red hot shooting team - 3 straight games making >=50% of their shots.
This play falls into another system that is 74-35 (67.9%) ATS over the last 5 seasons. It tells us to bet against home favorites of 20 or more points (INDIANA) - hot team - having won 12 or more of their last 15 games.
Indiana is 0-6 ATS after a game being called for 10+ less fouls than opponent over the last 2 seasons. The Hoosiers are 8-19 ATS off a road win by 10 points or more since 1997. Indiana is 1-5 ATS in its last 6 home games. Take Nebraska Wednesday.
