‘Cats as Dogs

 

cats

We always talk about how the ‘Cats perform well as underdogs, and horribly as favorites. Looking back at our games thus far in 2018 and how we’ve performed against the spread, this has born itself out.

Game ‘Cats Underdogs? ‘Cats Cover? What Happened
@Purdue Yes

+1

Yes

NU 31 – PU 27

As a small underdog, the ‘Cats win outright

@Michigan State Yes

+11

NU 29 – MSU 19

Nebraska No

-3.5

NU 31 – UNL 31

‘Cats barely win in OT but don’t cover
@Rutgers No

-21

No

NU 18 – RU 15

‘Cats barely win on the road, never close to covering

Every game we’ve been favored? We haven’t covered the spread.  And we’re 2-2 outright.

Every game we’ve been an underdog? We’ve covered the spread. And we’re 2-1 outright.

Crazy enough we have a better record overall when we’re an underdog versus when we’re a favorite. You have to think we’ll be underdogs in our next three games against Wisconsin, Notre Dame and Iowa. Let’s hope this trend continues.
