Meanwhile, Penn State also played a contest with a lot of turnovers (25) and won 85-64 over the Syracuse Orange. Penn State’s success was spearheaded by the efforts of F Mike Watkins, who posted a double-double on 16 boards and 15 points in addition to four blocks, and F Lamar Stevens, who had 20 points in addition to seven boards.
The Demon Deacons are the clear underdogs, so they’re hoping it’s the size of the fight that determines this one. They are currently four for four against the spread in their most recent games, however, a trend bettors might want to take into account.
Penn State’s win lifted them to 6-1 while Wake Forest’s defeat dropped them down to 5-3. We’ll see if the Nittany Lions can repeat their recent success or if Wake bounces back and reverse their fortune.
