There is one pick today
Take Penn State +3 spread (buy the half point) against Marquette for 3% of the bankroll.
There is no question that the Marquette Golden Eagles are one of the more offensively explosive teams in the country and their explosiveness was on full display in their most recent matchup where they dropped a season high, 101 points on the Oregon Ducks. As impressive as they were in their most recent contest, we don't expect them to have a repeat performance, especially not against a defensive minded Penn State team.
Marquette is a team that lives and die by the three-ball and we have seen at times that despite their proficiency on offense, they have the ability to go through long scoring droughts. When Marquette isn't scoring the basketball, it makes them an incredibly vulnerable team as they do not defend well at all. They prefer to get into a track meet and have struggled against some of the better defensive teams they have played against. The Nittany Lions play solid defense, defend the perimeter, and rebound the basketball. They are a tough matchup for Marquette tonight.
Th Nittany Lions haven't really gotten the respect that they deserve this season. This team has some impressive wins on their resume, including beating Ohio State three times, including winning in Columbus. They also just took out a very good Notre Dame team on the road and should be able to hold their own tonight. Penn State will also have the best player on the court in Tony Carr. Carr is a gamechanger and a true go-to player in the clutch for Penn State. He should be able to dominate a lackluster Marquette defense and we expect him to be the difference in this contest.
This should be an entertaining game to watch, but we won't be surprised when the Nittany Lions defense cause the Golden Eagles offense problems as Penn State goes on to win this game outright.
