Linebacker Free Pick Cotton Bowl Memphis vs Penn State Odds Shark
Memphis Tigers vs Penn State Nittany Lions (PSU -7, O/U 59.5)
James Franklin and the Nittany Lions will square off with the Mike Norvell-less Memphis Tigers in the Cotton Bowl. Penn State will try to avoid its third loss in the last five games, while Memphis is looking for a signature program win to add to an already successful 12-win season. The Tigers offense has been one of the best in the country all season long, but they now will have to test their skills against a Big Ten defense without their primary play-caller.
Our model predicts Penn State will hold the Memphis offense in check, projecting a final score of 35.8 – 23.5 in favor of the Nittany Lions. With a projected margin of victory of over 12 points and Penn State currently listed as a 7-point favorite, we have a sizable edge on the Nittany Lions. Our model suggests a $103 wager on PENN STATE -7 for an average $100 bettor.
The Linebacker’s NCAAF picks are 327-278 ATS (54.0%) and 325-254 on OVER/UNDERs (56.1%) during the regular season, profiting +55.84 units, or $5,584 for an average $100 bettor.
