Week 6 NCAA Football Vegas Odds & ATS Free Sports Picks: Wisconsin Badgers vs Nebraska Cornhuskers

Badgers: 4-0 (1-0 V)
Cornhuskers: 3-2 (2-1 H)
When: 8:00 PM ET, Saturday, October 7, 2017
Where: Memorial Stadium, Lincoln, Nebraska
TV: Big Ten Network

Although the final tally for the "Freedom Trophy" is a lopsided one, there has been no shortage of drama recently in the rivalry between Wisconsin and Nebraska. The 9th-ranked Badgers will attempt to seize early control of the Big Ten West division Saturday night when they visit Memorial Stadium in search of their fourth straight victory over the Cornhuskers.

Wisconsin, which is 5-1 in this series since Nebraska joined the Big Ten in 2011, used a go-ahead field goal in the game's final seconds to leave Lincoln with a 23-21 win in 2015, then escaped with a 23-17 triumph in overtime in Madison in 2016 after giving up a 10-point fourth-quarter advantage.

The Badgers nearly had to withstand another unlikely comeback in last Saturday's 33-24 triumph over Northwestern, as Wisconsin was in danger of losing a 21-point fourth-quarter lead before the defense forced a safety with less than a minute remaining.

Nebraska has silenced talk about third-year coach Mike Riley's job security with consecutive conference wins to take an early lead atop the West after a surprising home loss to Northern Illinois but enters the most difficult part of their schedule with No. 9 Ohio State set to visit next week.

Bovada has the Wisconsin listed as 11-points favorites and the game's total is sitting at 45½ according to MyBookie.ag

On the NCAA Football Moneyline odds at BetOnline Wisconsin are at -430.
