NCAAF betting: Big Ten teams closing in on win totals

Oct 28, 2013 |
The college football season is in the homestretch, so what better opportunity to look back at season win totals and check out which teams are on the cusp and still have a legit shot of surpassing those totals?

Here is a look at three bubble teams in the Big Ten that have a chance, but could have season win bettors sweating out the last few weeks.

For your reference, here is a look at season win totals from

Nebraska Cornhuskers (7-2)

Nebraska was tabbed with a 9.5 season win total and, to be quite frank, it isn't looking good. But there's a slim chance for bettors who took the Over. Everything rides on the upcoming tilt with Michigan State on Nov. 16. The Spartans lead the Legends Division with an 8-1 record and have gotten stronger since losing to Notre Dame. Should the Huskers escape with a victory, they'll close the season with some winnable matchups at Penn State and versus Iowa.

Wisconsin Badgers (7-2)

Wisconsin has lost twice, but by a combined nine points. The Badgers have three games remaining and need to win two of those to cash in for bettors who took the Over 8.5 wins. It's certainly feasible, with a winnable game at home against Indiana on Nov. 16 adding to bettors' hopes. The season will close a little bit on the tougher side, with a game at Minnesota the following week and a season finale at home to Penn State.

Indiana Hoosiers (4-5)

The high-scoring Hoosiers are all about points - both scoring them, and giving them up. Books had a season win total of 5.5 and a three-game losing was a little unsettling to bettors who took the Over. The Hoosiers snapped that, however, with a win versus Illinois this past weekend. Three games remain on the schedule for the Hoosiers with a winnable game to close the season against Purdue. Before that, however, are away games at Wisconsin and Ohio State, which don't look promising.
