Minnesota vs. Penn State,
02/08/2020 16:00 EDT,
Score: 77 - 83
Point Spread: -6/-110 Penn State
Penn State has won 5 straight games thanks to a tenacious style of hoops and blue collar play around the rim as they continue to scoop up rebounds at a high rate. Last time out they went into Michigan State and upset the mighty Spartans by a 75-70 count and are now directly eyeing the possibility of Big 10 championship. Im betting on early season low expectations to have now disappeared for this Nitanny Lions team to continue to play with purpose.
MINNESOTA is 4-19 ATS L/23 in road games after game - where they allowed a shooting pct. of 33% or less. Pitino is 8-21 ATS as a road underdog of 6 points or less or pick as the coach of MINNESOTA.
