Spread: Nebraska -7.5 (5dimes)
Total: 48
Kickoff: 7:30 pm ET
Location: Ryan Field, Evanston, IL
Television Broadcast: BTN


Nebraska has won its first three games scoring at least 35 points in each game while Northwestern has struggled on offense scoring no more than 24 points in any game and being held to seven in their game against Illinois St. Last week the Wildcats had over 400 yards in total offense for the first time in their only win. They have just 700 yards in passing and under 300 yards rushing which explains their lack of scoring. Nebraska has shown a balanced offense with over 700 yards passing and over 650 yards rushing. The oddsmakers have Nebraska as a 7.5 point favorite and with the stats the way they are according to consensus analysis, 77%of the public has backed the favorite with about a 50-50 split on the total which is 48. If the Wildcats aren’t at their best defensively against the Cornhuskers and with road games at Iowa next week and then Michigan St the following week, they could find themselves with four or five losses in the first half of the season.

WHO IS THE ICEMAN? He’s no soothsayer and he doesn’t have a crystal ball, but Jesse Schule can indeed predict the future. As a professional handicapper, it’s actually part of his job description. His clients have accused him of secretly possessing Marty McFly’s Sports Almanac, but he tells us the secret to his success is thanks in part to his fascination with history. The idea that you can predict the future by studying the past is nothing new. Historians have been doing it for years.

Handicapping Methodology: Jesse is not a believer in systems, programs or number crunching formulas to handicap games. He is firm in his belief that you aren't playing against the sportsbook, you are playing against the average Joe (other bettors). Jesse is notorious for attacking inflated point spreads, soft lines and totals that are a little out of whack. He also relies on a nearly photographic memory with an uncanny ability to tell you a player's history and stats dating back for decades. Anyone can look up how many touchdowns a guy has scored, Jesse can also tell you about the ones that he almost scored.

Money Management: His plays are rated based on a 1-10 star system, and he recommends wagering 0.5 percent of your bankroll per star rating. So a top rated 10* play would represent a bet equal to five percent of a player's bankroll.

Signature Plays:

AFTERNOON EXECUTIONER: This title is reserved for games with a start time between 12:00 – 4:30 ET. These are popular with action junkies who are dying for the games to get underway.

The TERMINATOR: Jesse's signature totals play, the Terminator has established a reputation as one of the most consistent winners in Schule's repertoire.

TOO GOOD TO BE TRUE: These plays represent a game where the stats show a significant trend which isn't reflected in the price.

GRIM REAPER BLOWOUT: His signature play reserved for medium to large favorites. High percentage plays for those who don't mind laying chalk.

HOT DIGGITY DOG: This is the Iceman's signature underdog play. About as rare as strawberries in December, you'll want to grab these whenever they are available
