Nittany Lions falls to Fighting Illini
Penn State lost 62-56 Tuesday night at home versus Illinois to drop to 20-6 overall 10-6 in the Big Ten Conference. The Nittany Lions trailed 30-26 at halftime and could not recover. Lamar Stevens led PSU with 13 points on 3-of-11 shooting plus 7-of-8 at the free throw line. He also registered nine rebounds, two steals and two blocked shots. Izaiah Brockington added 10 points, two assists and two steals off the bench.

The Hoosiers outscored the Golden Gophers 40-25 in the second half after trailing by three at the break. Trayce Jackson-Davis paced IU with career-highs of 27 points on 11-of-15 shooting plus 5-of-9 at the charity stripe to go with 16 rebounds and two blocked shots.

College Basketball Betting Trends
The road team is 1-4-1 ATS in the last six meetings. The Nittany Lions are 12-1 ATS in their last 13 February games.
The Hoosiers are 2-1 ATS in the last three meetings. Two of the last three meetings have gone under the total.
While this is a revenge spot for Penn State, it also beat the Hoosiers by a comfortable 15 at their place and are a bit salty after having their eight-game win streak snapped. Indiana has had an inconsistent year and are losers of five of their last seven straight up. I feel comfortable playing a Penn State team that gets after it defensively and totally had the Hoosiers out of sync not that long ago.
