I feel el terrible about NEB -3.5... I feel like every time there is a huge reverse line movement like that it' almost always a lost... I think the Terps win S/U we are both done. Stick a fork in us.

No you're wrong-

Statistics don't bear that out..

Maryland is mathematically rated higher than the Huskers, and traditionaly gets better players- Thats why people are betting them..Last year Nebraska got 7.5 points and beat em outright in thier house.. The Huskers ARE for real..Probably win by 4+

Nebraska should win this game by at least 3+  maryland  two best players are guards and I don't think they match up very well with Nebraskas guard's plus nevraska defense is real

nebraska seems like a loser bet.. such a soft line for dominant home team vs crap road team.

Tote board players are losers.. I don't give a sh^t about the line move

Its a very weak way to handicap

That's an odd way to view things.

If this matchup was at College Park, the line would be quite different. Likely Maryland -5.5/-6. You'd be laying two full possessions.

its opened at Neb -1.5...maybe it has returned to the "mean" or "median" of the perceived delta between the teams...

I always enjoyed your picks when you used to post back in the day while you were at law school.  I hope all is going well in your life.

The real value might be on the Under 143.5.
