Betting on the Penn State Nittany Lions (odds)

Record: 14-7 Overall/5-5 Conference

Penn State has been wildly inconsistent of late in terms of game results. The Nittany Lions have alternated wins with losses over their last five games, during which they have collected a 3-2 straight-up record. In their most recent outing, the Nittany Lions embarrassed the Michigan Wolverines in an 83-61 home win last Sunday. Jalen Pickett balled out big time in that game, scoring 25 on 10/17 shooting from the floor, while Seth Lundy contributed 22 points. Pickett, Lundy, and Andrew Funk are the three-punch combo of this Penn State team that is a top-30 team in the nation in adjusted offensive efficiency with 114.9 points per 100 possessions, per KenPom.

Penn State is 5-5 against the spread in its last 10 road games.

Betting on the Purdue Boilermakers (odds)

Record: 21-1 Overall/10-1 Conference

Purdue is undoubtedly the best team in the Big Ten at the moment, as the Boilermakers have already 10 wins against conference rivals this season. They have also defeated already Penn State this season, scoring a 76-63 victory over the Nittany Lions on Jan. 8. Zach Edey flexed his muscles in that game and scored 30 points to go with 13 rebounds. He is a tough matchup for Penn State, given his height, skill, and experience. The 7-4 junior is averaging 22.1 points and 13.0 rebounds per game this season for Purdue, which is also limiting opponents to only 60.3 points per contest.

Purdue is 3-2 against the spread in its last five meetings with the Nittany Lions.

Writer’s Prediction

Purdue wins, 72-64.
