Indiana vs Penn State Prediction

Penn State is known as a football school, but that is not the case this year. The Nittany Lions are almost a shoo-in at this point to make the big dance after two impressive wins over Illinois and Northwestern. This is a team that can shoot the three ball well and typically will play great on the defensive end. The star of this team is senior Jalen Pickett, who the Nittany Lions run their offense through.

Indiana, meanwhile, is looking to be in the Big Ten tournament championship game after not being in it for a long time. Indiana was seen as the preseason favorite to win the Big Ten, and even though they didn’t finish number one in the regular season, they have a great opportunity to win it all.

The Hoosiers are led by all-American big man Trayce Jackson-Davis who is a matchup nightmare for opposing teams. He has been one of the best players in the nation this season and is the main reason for the Hoosier's success. Indiana comes into this game as a three-point favorite.

I will be backing the Hoosiers tonight. I like this Penn State team a lot, and they are about to make us a lot of money on Sunday when we cash in the Nittany Lions to make the tournament, but this is a difficult spot for them tonight. They have no big that can handle Jackson Davis, and size will be a real issue for them in this game. Lastly, this is the third game in three days for Penn State, and I expect that to play a role tonight. Let’s cash in!
