Against The Spread Pick
Penn State continues their road trip with a stop at Crisler Center in Ann Arbor, as they will look to win a second-straight game over a quality Big Ten opponent. Michigan returns home beat up, after three losses in their last four games. Playing at home has been the only good thing for the Wolverines this season as they are 0-5 on the road. The Nittany Lions are just 2-8 in the last 10 head-to-head meetings with the Wolverines. Penn State hasn’t fared well on the road against the spread either, with a 1-4 ATS record in their last five road games. Michigan is 18-2 in their last 20 games at home. Backing the Wolverines at home to cover 5.5 points is a must here.
Over Under Pick
The last 10 head-to-head meetings between the Nittany Lions and Wolverines have seen a flurry of points on the scoreboard. Penn State and Michigan are both within the top 40 in college basketball in scoring. Two of the last three meetings finished with totals greater than 128 points. With both teams being able to score the ball and both favoring the over in a majority of their last few games, taking an over 147.5 total is the smart play.
