Michigan State Spartans vs Penn State Nittany Lions 2/15/2022 Picks Predictions Previews

 

The #17 Michigan State Spartans will meet with the Penn State Nittany Lions in a Big Ten Conference clash in Bryce Jordan Center, University Park, PA, on Tuesday, February 15, 2022, at 6:30 PM (EST).

 

Michigan State had a strong start to the season, going 14-2 in its first 16 matches. Both of the losses were to clubs rated in the top ten. For the most part, Michigan State withstood the Big Ten’s rigors, losing only four of its 13 league matches.

 

Last week, the Spartans dropped consecutive games to Rutgers and then-No. 14 Wisconsin, but they rebounded with a 76-71 victory against Indiana on Saturday. Because they were 4-point underdogs, they were only able to cover the spread by a hair. Michigan State has a history of dominating Penn State, having won 13 of the previous 15 matchups.

 

The Spartans are rated No. 29 in KenPom’s adjusted offensive efficiency ratings heading into this matchup. They are on fire from beyond the arc, making 38.6 percent of their 3-point attempts. Michigan State also performs admirably in the charity stripe, completing 76.8% of its free-throw attempts.

 

The Spartans will be seeking to improve their turnover rate, which now ranks 292nd in the country. They’ll be up against a Penn State defense ranked 54th in adjusted efficiency.

 

  • The total went OVER in 10 of Michigan State’s last 15 matches.
  • The University of Michigan State Spartans is 5-2 ATS in their last 7 matches on the road.
  • Michigan State is 9-4 SU in their last 13 matches in the Big Ten Conference.

Michigan State Spartans vs Penn State Nittany Lions Predictions 2/15/2022

 

Penn State started conference play with a 3-3 record, but it was not able to maintain that record throughout the schedule.

 

The Nittany Lions embarked on a three-game winless skid towards the end of January before winning in double OT against Iowa. They lost three consecutive games against No. 11 Wisconsin, Michigan, and Minnesota, and were not able to capitalize on that success.

 

Penn State was defeated by Michigan State in the first encounter, falling by 16 points on the road in early December. After this match, the Nittany Lions have only one more rated opponent on their schedule.

 

They are significantly stronger defensively than offensively, with an adjusted defensive efficiency ranking of No. 129. Penn State is also having trouble with turnovers, ranking 224rd in the nation.

 

The Nittany Lions aren’t compensating for their lack of perimeter shooting, making only 33.5 percent of their 3-point attempts. They’ll be up against a Michigan State defense ranked 44th in adjusted efficiency.

 

  • The University of Penn State Nittany Lions is 8-3 ATS in their last 11 matches.
  • Penn State is 3-15 SU in their last 18 matches at home against Michigan State.
  • The Lions are 8-3 ATS in their last 11 matches in the Big Ten Conference.

#17 Michigan State Spartans vs Penn State Nittany Lions. The NCAAB pick for this game is the #17 Michigan State Spartans. On Tuesday night, I simply don’t trust Penn State to reveal Michigan State’s worst flaw. Although the Spartans battled with turnovers this season, Penn State ranks 354th in defensive turnover percentage.

 

Michigan State’s level did not fall on the road, as the Spartans captured five of their last seven games. From beyond the arc, the Spartans are red-hot and taking care of things at the charity stripe.

 

Penn State has a solid squad capable of winning games, but it struggled to do so this season. In their previous 18 home matches versus Michigan State, the Nittany Lions are 3-15. The #17 Michigan State Spartans win and cover ATS 68-64.
