Why the Iowa Hawkeyes are a good bet -6?
Iowa is 3-1 ATS and 3-1 against the spread in their last 4 games. The Hawkeyes allow 12.2 points per game. The defense should handle Nebraska’s offense on Friday. If the Cornhuskers can’t move the football, they can’t score points. That should lead to an Iowa win and cover.

Why the Nebraska Cornhuskers are a good bet +6?
Nebraska flipped the switch in their last game. The Cornhuskers dominated the Maryland Terrapins 54-7. Although Maryland is a bad football team, Nebraska throttled the Terps the way teams like Ohio State and Michigan do. The Cornhuskers can play defense. Not only that, but Nebraska brings momentum to this rivalry game. They can cover versus the Hawkeyes.

Iowa vs Nebraska Final Betting Analysis
Although Iowa is 3-1 ATS in their last 4, they failed to cover against the Illinois Illini in Week 13. The Hawkeyes beat the Illini 19-10 as a -15 favorite. Iowa must head to Lincoln, NE to take on Nebraska on Friday.
The location makes a difference in this. Iowa is 1-3 ATS in away games this season. They average 23.5 points but failed to get 20 against Illinois. Nebraska’s fired up fans will help them on defense. That makes Iowa’s offense even less capable of reaching 20. The Cornhuskers should score just enough points to keep this within the spread. Back Nebraska.
