Ohio State is looking like the regular season Big Ten champs. They are a very good story but probably not the best team in the conference.
The same could be said of Penn State. The remaining games on their schedule are pretty tough though so they might sit on 18 wins heading into the conference tourney.
Ohio State Buckeyes
Ohio State got a huge win at Purdue last week and benefitted again when the Boilermakers lost at Michigan State. They just have to keep winning.
Keita Bates-Diop continues to lead the team in scoring and rebounding as part of his “finally” senior season. He is a great go to player with a varied arsenal.
Kam Williams has been out of the lineup due to suspension for over a week and we are not sure when he might be back. They have been winning without him but it does impact their depth.
Top teams have struggled on the road this season to this could be Ohio State’s turn. Curious to see how they handle the spot.
Penn State Nittany Lions
Penn State should be feeling good in this spot. They have won three in a row and upset Ohio State as a heavy dog earlier in the season, winning by three.
They are led by leading scorer Tony Carr but they have balanced scoring with 4 other scorers in double figures. That is what can make this team hard to tangle with.
The key to the road win was hot shooting by the Lions. They made an amazing 11 of 14 three pointers – that’s 79%. Tough to repeat but it shows what they are capable of.
Penn State does not have a ton inside but that shouldn’t hurt them much. This is a huge game as two wins over Ohio State would actually mean something.
CBB Betting Trends:
- OSU are 11-3 ATS in their last 14 vs. Big Ten.

- Under is 20-6 in OSU last 26 overall.
- Under is 11-4 in PSU last 15 home games.
Free Ohio State Buckeyes vs. Penn State Nittany Lions NCAAB Prediction:
Penn State is getting a lot of respect by being installed as the favourite. Perhaps too much.
I have not seen a lot of these teams but I would have to think there is motivation for OSU given they lost to Penn State earlier.
4* Free CBB Betting Pick: Ohio State ATS
The cushion is nice but I was going to pick the Buckeyes outright anyway.
NCAAB Free Score Prediction: Ohio State 79 – Penn State 72
