Penn State Nittany Lions
The Nittany Lions are 2-3 this month, with both wins coming at home. They defeated Minnesota at home last time out, 67-46.
Penn State is 11-12 this season, with a 6-9 record in Big Ten play.
Micah Shresberry's team is averaging 65.2 points per game on 43.5% shooting, while allowing 64.7points per game. Jalen Pickett leads the team in scoring (13.2) and assists (4.2).
The Terrapins are 1-4 this month, with their lone win coming on the road at Nebraska last time out, 90-74.
Maryland is 12-14 this year, with a 4-11 record in Big Ten play.
Danny Manning’s team is averaging 70.8 points per game on 43.1% shooting, while allowing 70.5 points per game. Eric Ayala (14.6ppg, 4.6rpg) and Fatts Russell (14.1ppg, 4.3rpg, 3.8apg) give the Terps one of the best backcourts in the conference.
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.
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)
