Penn State vs Nebraska -1
Nebraska is one of the best teams ATS (against the spread) this season, largely due to the disrespect they get from Vegas. The Cornhuskers are a very talented, very well put together team. In games where there has been a line, Nebraska is 21-7 ATS. They are one of the most profitable teams in the NCAA this season and their opponent, Penn State, has not been consistent on the road this season. It’s the last home game for Nebraska and last game of the season for both teams, expect this one to be close, but not close enough for Big Red to not cover. Penn State 68 Nebraska 72.
Illinois -.5 1st Half vs Rutgers
Illinois has been playing well lately and unfortunately it came at the end of the season. They have been playing solid team basketball and Leron Black has really showed he can be a versatile scorer. The Illini defense has also been stellar; the backcourt of Trent Frazier and Mark Alstork have been extremely effective at creating turnovers by pressuring the ball when it crosses half court. They should have more success today against a Rutgers team that has not played well in the first half of their past two games. The Scarlet Knights scored just 19 points against Maryland in the first half and followed that up with a 27 point first half performance against OSU. Illini lead 35-26 at half.
