In a difficult league, the Penn State Nittany Lions are performing well. They’re 7-6 overall and 2-3 in the Big Ten, which has no off nights. They lost to Ohio State and Michigan State in December, and they were beaten by Purdue 74-67 on Saturday as 10-point underdogs.

 

Their finest victory came as a 5 point underdog against Indiana in a 61-58 triumph. They also triumphed over Northwestern. They are placed No. 76 in the KenPom rankings, with an offensive efficiency of No. 74 and defensive efficiency of No. 87.

 

Last Saturday, the Nittany Lions lost 74-67 against Purdue, the No. 7 ranked team in the country.

Rutgers Scarlet Knights vs Penn State Nittany Lions. The NCAAB pick for this game is the Rutgers Scarlet Knights. I’m struggling to figure out why Penn State is the favorite in this matchup. It had to be because they are at home. After all, there is no need to bring Penn State here for basketball.

 

The home-court advantage may be diluted by the lack of a boisterous student section in the audience. Rutgers is simply a superior team all-around, and they are returning from a statement victory over Nebraska. Penn State boasts a landmark victory over Indiana and performed well against Purdue, but they also fell to UMass by 25 points.

 

In the previous five encounters between these two, the favorite is 4-0-1 against the spread. Rutgers will win to a predicted score of 67-64.
