ROGERS' 10* BIG TEN TOTAL 'COACH'S CORNER!' (THE BIG ONE!)
Michigan State vs. Penn State,
03/03/2020 19:00 EDT,
Score: 79 - 71
Total: -110/+144 Over
The set-up: Michigan State enters having won three straight, while Penn State enters off a road loss to Iowa. The Hawkeyes failed to cover for a fourth straight game and clearly the home side will be eager to return to form here. The Spartans have two players scoring in double figures and they average 75.7 PPG and they allow 64.4. Penn State also has two players scoring in double figures and it averages 75.4 PPG and it allows 67.4. Both teams play at a faster pace than the average NCAA tempo and I expect an all out war from start to finish.
The pick: Note as well that Michigan State has seen the total go over the number in seven of its last ten conference road games after a three-games or longer SU/ATS unbeaten streak. I think the Nittany Lions come out and push the pace and MSU will have to match that tempo. This number is a little low.
