LINCOLN, Neb. — ESPN’s football power index predicts that Nebraska will win about 5.5 games in 2017, and some Las Vegas odds released on Friday morning say nearly the same thing.
According to odds released by CG Technology, Nebraska’s over/under regular-season win total is 6. That means if you bet the “over,” the Huskers would have to win 7 or more.

Nebraska reporter Chris Heady made a poll of his own for you to vote on, but we want to figure why fans believe what they believe when it comes to the 2017 season.
ESPN has Nebraska’s wins at 5.5. This Vegas book has the Huskers at 6 wins.
The Huskers have exceeded Vegas expectations in three of the last five years — in the even-numbered years (2012, 2014, 2016). Nebraska went 9-3 last season after Vegas posted its over/under at 7.5 wins.
