Cornhuskers 2021 Schedule
Nebraska Cornhuskers Football
Head coach Scott Frost is still looking for his first winning season in Lincoln after a 3-5 season in 2020. Oddsmakers have the Cornhuskers' season win total set at six games, which would be the best season for Frost so far if he’s able to lead them to that many victories.
With three top-300 recruits coming to campus this fall, following the six who joined the program in 2020, there’s room for optimism in the future, but it remains to be seen when these players are able to make an impact.

Nebraska Cornhuskers Point Spreads
While their overall record was 3-5 in 2020, the Cornhuskers were able to approach break even for spread bettors, posting a 4-4 record. With spread bets, underdog teams (plus odds) only have to lose by less than the spread to cover and win the bet. Favored teams (minus odds) have to win by more than the spread to pay off for their backers. Here’s an example:
- Nebraska +12 (-110)
- Iowa -12 (-110)
If the Cornhuskers lose, 26-20, they still cover the spread, since they lost by only six. Of course, winning the game outright as an underdog is always a cover as well. Iowa would need to win by 13 or more to cover, and if the winning margin was exactly 12, both teams would tie against-the-spread.
Nebraska Cornhuskers Over/Unders
With their 12th-ranked scoring offense in the Big Ten, the Cornhuskers paid off in a big way for under bettors in 2020, with seven of eight games going under the total. Over/unders, also known as totals, are bets on how many points are scored in a game.
Using the Iowa game as an example, let’s say sportsbooks set the total at 52. With the 26-20 final score, this is a win for under bets. If you bet on the over, you would need 53 or more points to be scored to win. Had the game finished at exactly 52, both the over and the under would “push,” which is a tie that sees the original bet returned.
Nebraska Cornhuskers Moneylines
Moneylines are another common college football bet. It works like a spread bet, but how much a team wins by doesn’t matter -- the winner of the game is the winner of the moneyline bet.
Moneyline odds are a bit confusing, but it helps if you think of them in $100 increments. If Nebraska is a +360 underdog against Iowa, a win for Nebraska would pay $100 moneyline bettors $360. If the Cornhuskers were favored at -360 odds, that bettor would need to risk $360 to win $100.
Nebraska Cornhuskers Props
RB Markese Stepp is transferring from USC to take over as the lead back for a Cornhuskers team that ran for over 200 yards per game last season. If you want to bet on a repeat performance on the ground, consider betting on his rushing yards proposition bets.
Proposition, or prop, bets are wagers on a player’s stat line at the end of the game, and they work like over/unders. Other Stepp props could include his rushing touchdowns or reception yards, and there’s props available for most skill position players.
Nebraska Cornhuskers Futures
The futures market isn’t kind to the Cornhuskers in 2021, giving them a 1-in-14 chance to win the Big Ten. Futures are bets on the entire season, and they're priced like moneylines or over/unders, depending on the bet. Other Cornhuskers futures include over/under team wins, odds to win the national title, and player awards markets.
