College Basketball Betting Free Pick: Penn State Nittany Lions vs. Syracuse Orange

CBB FREE PICK: Penn State Nittany Lions vs. Syracuse Orange

#863 Penn State -2.5 (Friday, November 29 @ 7 pm EST)
After the opening day 48-34 loss at home to Virginia, Syracuse won four straight against basically cupcakes. Their first non-home game was Wednesday against Oklahoma State and the Orange looked awful, losing 86-72. The loss of point guard Jalen Carey has forced two freshmen and a sophomore to be the primary ballhandlers. Overall, Syracuse is the 321st rated team in experience per KenPom. This team will defend but has big stretches where they have trouble scoring.
Penn State is on the opposite side of the spectrum in multiple ways. First off, The Nittany Lions are 84th in experience with only one freshman getting any playing time. The senior combo of Mike Watkins and Lamar Stephens is the envy of most teams, while the five guard rotation all contain players in at least their second year with Penn State. Pat Chambers (54%ATS in the last four years) crew is off a loss to Oklahoma State that they basically gave away in the second half. Expect this experienced Penn State team to methodically grind out a comfortable win tonight against a mediocre Syracuse team that isn’t going to right this ship anytime soon, especially away from the Carrier Dome. Penn State -2.5 is the play.
