Rutgers Preview

The Rutgers Scarlet Knights are 13-6 (5-3) this season after they lost to Michigan State by a score of 70-57 in their last game. Rutgers shot 34.4% from the field and was +8 in rebounding margin in the loss. The Rutgers Scarlet Knights are averaging 70.2 points per game, 57.6 points against per game, 38.6 rebounds per game, and 15.2 assists per game. Cam Spencer has led the Scarlet Knights this season with 13.6 points per game, 3.7 assists per game, and 3.1 rebounds per game. Rutgers is shooting 42.7% from the field, 74% on free throws, and 31.5% on three pointers this year.


Penn State is 4-1 ATS in their last 5 Tuesday games and 8-2 ATS in their last 10 road games. The over is 5-1 in Penn State’s last 6 games. Rutgers is 5-1 ATS in their last 6 home games and 10-4 ATS in their last 14 Tuesday games. The over is 16-6 in Rutgers’ last 22 Tuesday games. The underdog is 5-1-1 ATS in these two teams last 7 head to head meetings.


Rutgers comes into this game after winning three of their last five games, while Penn State has won two of their last three games. Rutgers has been very good at home, while Penn State only has one road win this season. I believe the difference in this game will be the Rutgers defense (allowing 57.6 points per game), so I will take Rutgers at home.
