Big Ten basketball sees the Rutgers Scarlet Knights on the road to take on the Minnesota Golden Gophers on Saturday, January 22nd.
The tip-off is set for 12:00 ET from Williams Arena.
The Golden Gophers started off as a 3.5 point favorite and that number is now down to 2. The total has gone from 127 to 129.
Rutgers Scarlet Knights
A lot of other teams in their conference may be getting more attention, but I have been pretty impressed by what Rutgers has done so far. Going into the season, I really was not sure what to expect out of this crew.
The Scarlet Knights got a win over the Iowa Hawkeyes on Wednesday by a score of 48-46. It was certainly not a pretty victory, but that does not matter when you get the job done.
When everything is said and done, I am not sure how far these guys will get, but maybe they could end up surprising some people.
As you can see by the number of points that they scored in their last outing, the offense was not exactly great, but the defense played quite well. It is no easy task to hold a team like Iowa to that few points.
Minnesota Golden Gophers
Similar to Rutgers, Minnesota may be flying under the radar a bit, but I thought they have played well so far and think they will only get better as the year goes on.
As of now, the Golden Gophers have a record of 10-5. I would not say they have played the most difficult schedule, but they have done what they have had to most of the time, which is what you really ask out of a team.
They last played on Sunday and lost to the Iowa Hawkeyes by a score of 81-71. They will look to get back on track on Saturday when they host Rutgers.
The main issue for them in their last loss is they fell behind early and were never able to dig themselves out of that hole, even though their performance was much better in the second half.
CBB Betting Trends:
- Rutgers is 5-1 ATS in their last 6 games.
- Rutgers is 4-2 ATS in their last 6 games against Minnesota.
- The total has gone under in 4 of Rutgers’ last 6 games.
- Minnesota is 1-5 ATS in their last 6 games.
- Minnesota is 0-5 ATS in their last 5 games at home.
- Minnesota is 1-4 SU in their last 5 games.
Free Rutgers Scarlet Knights vs. Minnesota Golden Gophers NCAAB Summary:
Minnesota will look to start playing better at home when they take on the Scarlet Knights. It is important for them that they play more of a complete game than they did in their last game.
4* Free CBB Betting Pick: Rutgers ATS
Although they got the victory in their last game, the offense for Rutgers is going to have to better in this ball game. It is not too often that you win ball games with as few points as they scored against Iowa.
I can see this game being tricky for the Golden Gophers. I feel that Rutgers matches up pretty well with them and I look for them to be in this game.
Minnesota has not been great at covering as of late and I feel that will continue on Saturday. Even with the small number, I do not love them laying it.
Give me the Scarlet Knights getting the 2 points here.
