The Rutgers Scarlet Knights and Northwestern Wildcats face off on Tuesday in a college basketball showdown at Welsh-Ryan Arena. When these two teams faced off in February of 2021 it was Rutgers that won 64-50. 

Rutgers comes into this game with a 12-8 record overall and they have gone 7-12-1 against the spread. In the last game against Nebraska, Rutgers had a nice comeback in the second half and were able to win by two points. Rutgers is averaging 67 points while their defense is giving up 64.2 points per game. Ron Harper Jr has been the top player for Rutgers averaging 15.8 points while shooting 43.9 percent from the field and 42.6 percent from behind the three point line. There are three different players that are averaging at least 10 points per game. 

On the other side of this matchup is the Northwestern Wildcats who sit with a 9-10 record and they have gone 8-10 against the spread. In the last game against Illinois, Northwestern’s defense was strong giving up only 59 points, but their offense could only manage 56 points. The Wildcats are averaging 75.1 points while their defense is giving up 68.4 points per game. Forward Pete Nance has been the top player for Northwestern averaging 16.3 points while shooting 50.9 percent from the field and 44.6 percent from behind the three point line. In this game, Northwestern needs the offense to be good.

Rutgers is 1-7 against the spread in their last eight road games. Northwestern is 1-5 against the spread in their last six home games. The under is 5-1 in Rutgers last six games. The under is 4-0 in Rutgers last four games following an against the spread loss. The under is 4-1 in Northwestern’s last five games against a team with a winning straight up record. 

Rutgers is going to slow down the pace of this offense and that is going to lead to this game being lower scoring. It wouldn’t shock me if the winner of this game finishes right around 60 points, and the under is going to cash.
