Penn State vs. Iowa Prediction

I’m taking Penn State and the points here. The Nittany Lions have been able to battle in some spots, and Iowa, while solid offensively at home, has definitely had some defensive flaws as well and they’re not a team I’m looking to lay big numbers with. Home court’s important in the Big Ten, but even I have my limits. Give me Penn State and the points.
