BETTING TRENDS

Penn State is 5-0 ATS in their last 5 games.

Nittany Lions are 2-4 SU in their last 6 road games.

Maryland is 2-3 ATS in their last 5 games.

Terrapins are 1-5 SU in their last 6 home games.

 

Prediction

Penn State has been really competitive this season, and they even have a chance to come into the Xfinity Center and walk out winners. Maryland can't be trusted right now, so I like giving the Nittany Lions a shot as underdogs here.

Spot Penn State the points Monday night.

PICK: Penn State +2.5 (-110)
