Against The Spread Pick
Penn State gets a chance for a road win in the Big Ten, as they pay a visit to Lincoln, Nebraska for a match-up with the Cornhuskers at Pinnacle Bank Arena. The Nittany Lions have won six of the last 10 head-to-head meetings, but the Cornhuskers have had Penn State’s number in match-ups played at Pinnacle Bank Arena. The Nittany Lions have lost each of their last seven visits to Lincoln. Nebraska is 0-6 in their last six games, but they have made games tough on every team they have faced, and are 5-2 ATS in its last seven games. The Cornhuskers have had a tough season, and that is why even at home they should be avoided here. Take Penn State to cover -8.5.
Over Under Pick
Penn State has been held under 70 points in four of its last six games this season. Each of the last three head-to-head meetings has resulted in over totals. That includes their most recent clash, that saw Penn State score 95 points en route to a 166-point total. The last two games played at Pinnacle Bank Arena have been quite a bit lower totals, as those two games saw both teams score 76 points or fewer. At a total of 151 for this match-up, the under has to be the play.
