  • Opening point spread: Iowa -1.5
  • Opening moneyline: Iowa TBA/Nebraska TBA
  • Opening total: Over/Under 27 points scored
  • Time: Noon ET Friday (CBS)

UPDATE 10:45 A.M. ET FRIDAY: As kickoff approaches, the total is all the rage in this game. BetMGM opened at 27.5 Sunday night and steadily dropped all week, bottoming out this morning at a minuscule 24.5 (Over -115).

The Over is taking 62% of tickets/60% of money. By ticket count, Iowa-Nebraska is actually BetMGM's most-bet Over in the college football odds Week 13 market. Part of that is the historically low total, and part of that is due to being a Friday game, ahead of the bulk of the big Saturday matchups.

"The low total isn't deterring bettors. We are still taking way more Over money," BetMGM trader Christian Cipollini said.

As for the spread, Nebraska opened -1.5 at BetMGM. On Monday the line jumped the fence twice, first to Iowa -1.5, then back to Nebraska -1.5. The Huskers advanced to -2.5 Tuesday and -2.5 (-115) Thursday.

However, ticket count is 2.5/1 and money 2/1 on the underdog Hawkeyes.

UPDATE 2 P.M. ET MONDAY: Iowa (9-2 SU/5-5-1 ATS) continues to rack up wins and Unders. In Week 12, the Hawkeyes edged Illinois 15-13, failing to cover the 3-point spread. And of course, the game fell short of the 32.5 total. The Under is 9-2 for Iowa this season.

Nebraska (5-6 SU/4-6-1 ATS) is on a three-game skid and needs a win in the regular-season finale to earn a bowl bid. The Huskers fell to Wisconsin 24-17 in Week 12, pushing as 7-point road 'dogs.

Caesars already made the modest move to jump the fence on Iowa-Nebraska. The Hawkeyes opened -1.5 Sunday afternoon, went to -1 a few hours later, then this morning dipped to pick before flipping to Huskers -1.

The absurdly low total – or maybe it's not absurd at this point – opened at 27 and is already down to 26.5.
