Betting odds: Nebraska Cornhuskers at Clemson Tigers

  • Spread: Clemson -3.5
  • Over/under: 138.5
  • Tip: 7 p.m. ET
  • TV channel: ESPN2

Many will solely consider the Cornhuskers’ second-most recent contest against Texas Tech when handicapping this game, as the Red Raiders smothered Tim Miles’ unit to the tune of 21.7% shooting from behind the arc and a 21.2 turnover percentage.

But I consider that anomaly; Chris Beard’s group consistently ranks top 10 in KenPom’s Adjusted Defensive Efficiency.

Nebraska has adopted position-less basketball, and it’ll present the Tigers plenty of defensive issues. The Cornhuskers have yielded the fewest Points Per Possession (0.70 PPP) and lowest Effective Field Goal Percentage (35.7%) in the nation early this season.
