2009 CFB Preview: Nebraska

I didn't run the numbers for Kansas, but judging by the lines, Nebraska is the Vegas favorite for being the Big XII North sacrifice to OU/UT in Jerry's New House.

I think it's also safe to assume they would be the favorite to win the Sun Belt. Nebraska's only probable losses are OU and VT, with a winnable game in Lawrence, which is the only other game they will be a dog. Subjectively, Nebraska has one of the lower standard deviations of teams I've run through, with only 1.4 wins separating E(Worst) and E(Best).

In Vegas, 80-1 was the best price you could get on the Huskers, so it doesn't look like much value there, unless you are really high on them. There is probably a little bit of value in the under for their win total of 8.5, but I doubt it is worth tying money up for the next four months.
