College Basketball Odds
Penn State -1

Nebraska is coming off an embarrassing home loss in the finale to Michigan. In that game the Cornhuskers got behind early and never really had a chance to get back in it as the Wolverines were knocking down shots and got up so much they just cruised to the victory.

Penn State has not had a good season, as evident with the Nittany Lions playing in this early contest of the tournament. The winner here will advance to take on fifth-seeded Michigan State.

Nebraska won the only meeting between these two teams in mid-February, 82-66. That game was played in Lincoln. Following that loss the Nittany Lions went on to lost four straight additional games.

Penn State has dropped five in a row, but they’re favored here. Nebraska has dropped four straight. That’s a lot of losses.
