College football betting expert John Hoben of, the premier provider of sports data, information, and analysis to the betting community, discusses this weekend's key NCAA Football matchup with CEO Thomas Jensen in anticipation of's full coverage of College Football Betting for Week 8.

The team lends an insight into what to look out for when researching for college football predictions, as well as where the "public's" money is going when the No. 5 Texas Longhorns travel to Lincoln to play the No. 17 Nebraska Cornhuskers in a key Big 12 Conference Match Up:

The Texas Longhorns vs. Nebraska Cornhuskers at Memorial Stadium on Saturday for a Noon kickoff (Eastern). The Cornhuskers won their 800th game in the program's history by defeating Kansas State 21-3, last Saturday, setting up a matchup of two of the four teams in college football history who have won at least 800 games. The Longhorns put their streak of 18-straight Big 12 wins on the line as they try to win their third consecutive game against Nebraska. Texas is the only Big 12 school that can claim a series lead over Nebraska, with a 6-4 advantage. Texas leads the series 5-1 since Big 12 play began in 1996.

"Texas opened as a 6.5 point favorite but the spread has moved to -7 as you can see on the Live Odds Board located at," stated Jensen. "Seven is a key number in football and the odds makers do not like coming off the number 7 so expect to see the price change rather than a line move. The Longhorns Quarterback Colt McCoy will need to play smart, like he did in Norman, when he steps into another hostile environment in Lincoln. The Cornhuskers don't stand a chance in my opinion!"

"The Huskers 2006 offense has shown the explosiveness and efficiency Head Coach Bill Callahan is seeking in Nebraska's version of the West Coast Offense," commented Hoben. In the latest NCAA rankings, Nebraska stacks up well nationally on offense. The Huskers rank ninth nationally in scoring offense (37.0 ppg) eighth in total offense (448.4 yap), 11th in rushing offense (207.7 ypg) and 28th in passing offense (240.7 yap). "Nebraska is one of just four teams in the nation to rank in the top 30 in rushing offense, passing offense, total offense and scoring offense, joining Louisville, California and Oregon," stated Hoben.
