Nebraska vs Indiana Prediction & Pick

Don't look now, but Nebraska has now won three straight road games against ranked opponents dating back to the 2021-22 regular season. The Cornhuskers did their work around the rim (25-of-47 from two-point range) and held the Bluejays to a 25% shooting mark from beyond the arc on Sunday.

The bad news for Nebraska is it now has to face a team it has not beaten since 2019. Indiana is riding a 5-game home winning streak and has posted an average scoring margin of +31.1 at Assembly Hall this year. The Hoosiers are also shooting an impressive 56.9% at home this season (No. 8 in NCAA).

Indiana is in need of a bounce back win in Big Ten play and that is exactly what it gets on Wednesday.

Final Score Prediction: Nebraska: 60 | Indiana: 70

Nebraska vs Indiana Best Bet

The Cornhuskers know how to play up to the level of their opponent. They are 4-1 against the spread (ATS) in their last five road games and 5-0 ATS in their last five games against a Big Ten opponent. The emergence of players like Griesel and senior Derrick Walker give Nebraska a chance to compete.

While Indiana is 6-0 straight up in its last six games against Nebraska, only one of those wins came by at least 14 points. The Hoosiers have not beaten a Power Five opponent by more than 12 points this season, either. It's hard to trust Woddson's squad to cover a big spread until it proves it can do it.

Bet: Nebraska Cornhuskers +13.5 (-114)
