Oddsmaker explains movement in point spread for Nebraska-Michigan game
Nebraska returns Saturday to Ann Arbor in its first season as a Big Ten Conference member, and the Cornhuskers are 3.5-point underdogs Saturday (Noon, ESPN).
Michigan and Nebraska both sport 8-2 records, 4-2 in the Big Ten. Bodog Sportsbook director Richard Gardner outlined the point spread in an email for AnnArbor.com.
“This week's Michigan line opened with them as a 4-point favorite at home hosting Nebraska. When we opened the line we saw significant sharp action come in on Nebraska +4, so we moved the line to Nebraska +3.5, and that is where the line sits now. At the current line of Michigan +3.5 we are seeing about 40% of the action on them. If this trend of betting Nebraska continues, we could see the line moving to Michigan +3 by kickoff.”
