TOM STRYKER’S FREE BASKETBALL SELECTION TUESDAY, FEBRUARY 9TH
#618 MICHIGAN ST (-3) over Penn St at 7 PM EST
Far from satisfied with a 9-7 SU overall mark including a dismal 3-7 SU tally in conference play, head coach Tom Izzo will do what he does best – beat Penn State. Under the direction of Coach Izzo, MSU owns a sensational 33-8 SU record including a profitable 16-5 ATS in its last 11 if the Green & White are priced as an underdog or a favorite of -8 or less.
Rest assured, Sparty will pay attention when the Nittany Lions visit. Back on February 4th, 2020, PSU (+8′) visited East Lansing and rocked State 75-70. Even though Michigan State avenged that blemish on March 3rd, 2020, the Spartans are not about to let Penn State win again on their home floor. There is a strong team trend that will help our cause too. Since February 23rd, 1991, MSU owns a stunning 74-15 SU and 57-32 ATS as a Big 10 host provided it takes the floor off the comforts of a home game. If the Spartans are running the court against a foe that arrives with confidence off a SU and ATS win, this team trend explodes to a highly profitable 36-8 SU and 30-14 ATS including an elite 16-3 SU and 15-4 ATS if State is priced as a single-digit favorite.
This is going to be a difficult spot for Penn State. On the Big 10 road competing against an opponent that scoots in off the comforts of a home game, the Nittany Lions have lost their growl suffering a feeble 14-60 SU and 29-45 ATS mark in their last 74 games. In this setting priced as an underdog, head coach Jim Ferry’s troops fall to a miserable 8-57 SU and 24-41 ATS including a horrible 2-15 SU and 4-13 ATS if they are priced short as a pup of +6.5 or less. Also, in their last 21 battles overall, the Lions hold a weak 8-13 SU and ATS mark including a jaw-dropping 0-10 ATS in this set if they hold a pointspread won/loss percentage greater than .500.
After not being able to play for 17 days, Penn State has participated in eight games in 19 days. Coach Ferry’s kids must be exhausted and they’ll simply run out of gas on this visit to the Breslin Center. The Spartans have some work to do in the conference and they haven’t forgotten about last year’s home loss to PSU. Take Michigan State. Thanks and best of luck, Tom.
