We should be in for another exciting night of NCAA basketball as the Nebraska Cornhuskers (15-13) hit the road to take on the No. 9 Michigan Wolverines (24-4). The Cornhuskers are still on the NCAA Tournament bubble, despite dropping their last two games. They are currently 12-point underdogs, according to FanDuel Sportsbook, so they'll need some luck to pull this one off. 


Here's what some experts from around the industry are predicting for this matchup.

Luke Warner, of "iSports Web," is expecting a strong showing from the home team tonight. Warner expects Michigan to come out hot after the Wolverines' recent defeat against their in-state rival, Michigan State. He's taking the Wolverines straight up and to cover the 12 points. 


Detroit Free Press

Orion Sang is expecting a narrow win from Michigan. Sang cites the Wolverines' lack of bench production as a problem, but he predicts the Wolverines will ultimately pull out the victory, 68-60.


Overall, all three highlighted predictions are siding with the Wolverines SU. However, the experts are split on the spread, with one taking the points for Nebraska and one laying the points for the Wolverines. And the third highlighted expert is calling for an even split right down the middle, with a 12-point spread push.
