The Big Red are 4-0 ATS in their last 4 games overall and 7-3 ATS in their last 10 Monday games. The Nittany Lions are 1-4 ATS in their last 5 games.

Cornell isn’t expected to do much this season, however, the Big Red have had some success early on offensively and do have an impressive win against a Colgate team that is the team to beat in the Patriot Conference this season. Penn State was able to pick up a nice win against St. Francis (BKN), however, this is team that looked awful against UMass and has really struggled with turnovers as they come into this one ranked just 345th in steals per game & 318th in turnover margin. Penn State is the better team, however, they don’t have much depth and as I think Cornell can keep this one close behind an offense that should have success against a Penn State team allowing opponents to shoot 42.7% from the field, I think the play here is to take the Big Red and the points.
