Who We Like: The Nittany Lions come in banged up, with Mike Watkins out with a knee injury. Watkins averaged 12.1 points and 8.9 rebounds per game this season. That’s a big loss for Penn State, especially when it needs to cover 9.5 points against a respectable Temple squad. The Owls have managed six covers on the road this season and I expect them to be able to keep this game competitive. Penn State hasn’t played in nearly two weeks, which should leave them a little rusty to start. I think Temple can jump out to an early lead and use that to cover the spread down the stretch.
