Penn State Nittany Lions
I would not say that Penn State has been awesome this year, but they have been decent. This is a team that really did not have all that high of expectations heading into the season.
The Nittany Lions last played on Tuesday, where they beat the Rutgers Scarlet Knights by a score of 66-49. They will be in for a much bigger challenge when they square off with a very good team in the Buckeyes.
This squad has already played some solid competition, but the results have not been there for them. That is going to eventually have to change before the year ends or they will just be a team stuck in the middle.
A lot of different guys stepped up for them on the offensive side in the win over the Scarlet Knights. The leading scorer was Sam Sessoms, who had 17 points and 6 assists. Also, John Harrar had 16 points and 6 rebounds.
Ohio State Buckeyes
Overall, Ohio State has had a good year, but they are not as good as some might have thought. There were folks that had this team as one of the better ones in the country and that simply is not the case right now.
The Buckeyes come into this contest with a record of 10-4. Based on the teams they have played, that win/loss mark is pretty good.
These guys lost to the Wisconsin Badgers on Thursday by a score of 78-68. Even a strong second half by them was not enough to overcome what the Badgers were able to do in the first half of the game. They will look to get off to a better start when they face off with the Nittany Lions.
I was not all that impressed with the way this crew played defense in their last game. I get that the Badgers are a good team, but they were getting way too many easy baskets.

Free Penn State Nittany Lions vs. Ohio State Buckeyes NCAAB Summary:
After a tough loss at the hands of the Badgers, the Buckeyes will look to get back on track when they host the Nittany Lions. Even though their opponent is not a huge threat, they could very much lose the game if they played like they did on their last game.
4* Free CBB Betting Pick: Ohio State ATS
The Nittany Lions will look for revenge in this game, as they have already lost to Ohio State one time. In order for them to go on the road and win this game, they will have to be much sharper than they were the last time they met.
I know that the Buckeyes have not exactly been great as of late, but I feel this is a game where they can get back on track, as I think that they match up well with a team like Penn State. I do not feel the Nittany Lions have the bodies to stop this crew on offense.
Once Ohio State gets into a groove, I think they will just be too much for this Penn State team to handle and I like them to cover this number.
Give me the Buckeyes laying the points at home here.
