Let’s look at what the data says, and which of these teams is in a historically profitable spot.
Northwestern vs. Nebraska Betting Systems
Both Pro Systems like the value with Northwestern, which is a 7.5-point underdog as of Wednesday morning.
This system is very simple, yet effective. Home favorites coming off poor offensive performances are overvalued by the betting market.
Based on this data, poor offensive performances carry over into the next game, especially in situations where a team may be overvalued because it’s returning home and bettors “expect” a bounceback in scoring.
As a result, these teams are ripe for fading.
Bettors backing this trend have gone 258-177-4 (59.3%) ATS since 2005.

In heavily bet games expected to be lower scoring (totals of 54 or below), teams playing at least two consecutive road games are undervalued when playing conference opponents.
As we’ve seen across multiple sports, division or conference opponents are more familiar, and therefore result in closer games.
We’ve also noticed that home teams are overvalued in many spots as well, providing some reasoning to why this system has hit at almost a 62% rate.
