Penn State vs. George Mason Pick

College Basketball Predictions: Penn State vs. George Mason 12/17/17

Can Penn State go on the road and cover a double-digit spread when it takes on George Mason today at 4PM ET?

According to oddsmakers at Bovada.lv, Penn State is favored on the road today, as the Nittany Lions are getting odds of -11.5 points against George Mason. The over/under total for the contest is listed at 144 points. Today’s game takes place from EagleBank Arena in Fairfax, Virginia.

Penn State is coming off a 74-54 win over George Washington last weekend to improve to 8-3 on the season. The Nittany Lions have alternated wins and losses over their last seven games. PSU is 5-3-1 against the spread, going just 1-2-1 ATS in their last four games. Penn State is putting up 78.7 points per game this season while allowing 66.4 per contest. Tony Carr is leading Penn State with 20 points, 5.1 rebounds and 4.4 assists per game. Lamar Stevens is adding 13.7 points and 6.5 rebounds per game.

George Mason is coming off a 74-51 loss to Georgia Southern this week. The Patriots are now 5-6 on the season after losing five of their last seven. George Mason is also just 3-5 against the spread, failing to cover in their last three games. The Patriots average 68.1 points per game on offense while allowing 71.8 per contest. Otis Livingston is leading the team with 14.8 points and 4.5 assists per game while Jaire Grayer is adding 13.7 points and 8.3 rebounds per contest.

Bet on Penn State vs. George Mason

Penn State has won four of its last five meetings with George Mason, but the Patriots have covered the spread in the last two encounters. Penn State is the better team, but I am not sure I am ready to give up so many points with the Nittany Lions quite yet. They are just 3-9-1 against the spread in their last 13 road games while George Mason is 4-1-1 ATS in their last 6 against Big Ten opponents. The public betting is backing Penn State on the road, but I am going to take the points.
