LOSS
YESTERDAY 10:11 PM

Michigan State has gone 7-1 ATS in its last eight home games and 10-3 ATS at home on the season. It has bounced back strong with three straight wins and covers after a three-game slide. Rutgers has covered its last three but has lost four of their last five and failed to cover two of those against top Big Ten teams. The Spartans don't mess around here, win by 20 or more. The Spartans' margin of victory at home this season is 24 points.

LOSS
YESTERDAY 9:56 PM

San Diego State has well of late, winning and covering seven of its last nine games. And the Aztecs beat Nevada twice last season, which is part of the reason I like Nevada to roll by double digits Wednesday. The Wolf Pack have won 10 straight and they're burying all the MWC teams covering large spreads in their last six games. Nevada is the top play here.

WIN
Tue 2/19

Rhode Island has won and covered the five meetings with VCU, including a 71-65 win four weeks ago. But Rhode Island has hit the skids since they last met, going 1-5 straight-up and ATS. The exact opposite has happened with VCU, which has won and covered its last six games, winning by an average of 13 ppg. For whatever it's worth, the favorite has covered the last eight meetings VCU is the play Tuesday.

WIN
Tue 2/19

The Huskers ended their seven-game losing streak by winning their last two at home, but they're on the road tonight. And they're 1-8 ATS in their last nine games. I've watched Penn State's last five games and I was impressed by the hustle, teamwork, defensive awareness and taking smart shots. It's 3-1-1 ATS over the last five which includes two narrow losses to Purdue, a tough loss but cover at Ohio State and an outright win against Michigan. I'm on Penn State.

PURDUE 48 @ IND 46

LOSS
Tue 2/19

Purdue has gone only 3-5 in true road games this season. But its record is misleading because the road struggles happened early in the season. The Boilermakers come into Indiana winning nine of their last 10 games overall (3-1 road) and the big dangling carrot in front of them is winning the Big Ten regular-season title. They'll tie Michigan and Michigan State with a win Tuesday and, down the stretch, Purdue has the much easier schedule of the three teams. Purdue gets the cover Tuesday.
