Most Bet on Sides - January 31: Dangerous Play on Penn State

It's the quiet before the storm with one of the year's biggest betting events, the Super Bowl, taking place Sunday.


We still have plenty of wagering action ahead of the big game.

Purdue was seeing heavy 81% of the action as a -7 favorite on the road at Penn State.

This one is primarily coming off the -7.5, even -8 at some books.

Penn State has lost their last seven games overall and are destined for the trash heap of Men's College Basketball this season.   The last three games, however, they have covered within the current spread.

Sagarin suggests this line is on the money at 7.5 but we do have to factor in the desperation the Nittany Lions are feeling for a win here at home.

Over the last three meetings these teams have played within eight points.

We have Penn State just barely covering at +7.5 (still available some books), likely losing by 6.   We are giving them a 57% chance of covering the spread.

Elsewhere, Real Madrid was seeing decent action.

The Bucks-Raptors game was seeing nice volume but action was mostly even.
