Penn State is 8-2 ATS in their last 10 games and 6-1 ATS in their last 7 games following an ATS win. The under is 5-2 in Penn State’s last 7 games. Minnesota is 2-5 ATS in their last 7 Saturday games and 1-7-1 ATS in their last 9 home games. The over is 4-0 in Minnesota’s last 4 home games. The home team is 4-0 ATS in these two teams last 4 head to head meetings.
Minnesota is having a rough season and is one of the worst teams in the Big Ten, especially after giving Nebraska their first win of the season in their last game. Penn State has lost a few really close games, which means they are probably better than their record suggests. I am taking Penn State in this game because Minnesota is just not good.
