The Nebraska Cornhuskers have been one of the worst Power 5 teams of the college basketball season, and with three games left on the regular-season schedule, they’re playing with no pride. Today, they face the Penn State Nittany Lions, who are on a big 67-60 win over Northwestern as they try to get the highest possible seed in the upcoming Big 10.
This will be the only regular meeting between the two teams this season.
Take a look at the odds for the game through WynnBET Sportsbook.
Like Indiana vs. Minnesota today, there is a big difference in the healing ability of both teams in this match. The Cornhuskers are ranked 347 in the country in terms of recovery rate, which is the 12th worst performance of all first-place teams. Nebraska won only 44.9% of the available bounces.
Penn State will have a big advantage in that area, as the Nittany Lions are 44th in recovery rate, accounting for £53.2%. They’ve been even better at this lately, as they’ve racked up 57.7% rebounds in their last three games, which is the eighth-best run in the nation for that span. .
Not only is Nebraska superior in counter-attacking ability, but Nebraska is also ranked 306th in defensive efficiency. They really are one of the worst teams in the Power 5 games.
It’s Penn State or nothing today.
Pick: Penn State -10.5
