Odds Subject to Change

The Gophers hit the road as 5.5-point underdogs with a total set at 139.5. Minnesota opened at 6.5-point underdogs, while the total started out at 138.

Minnesota slides in on a two-game losing streak, dropping each of the past two at Purdue and at home against Maryland by an average of 16.5 points per game. They're also in the thros of a 1-4 SU/ATS skid. One of the most consistent things about the Gophers has been their work on totals, hitting the 'under' in seven of the past eight outings.

The last time the Gophers were an underdog of 5.5 points, they won outright against Michigan on Jan. 16, blowing the doors off the Wolverines by a 75-57 score, their only victory in the past five.

The Scarlet Knights are on a three-game heater, and they have covered each of the past three outings, too. The win streak comes on the heels of a five-game losing streak and 0-4 ATS slide, as it is has been a season of ups and downs for Rutgers to date.

Rutgers embarrassed Michigan State on Jan. 28 in their most recent showing at the RAC, winning 67-37 as four-point favorites as the 'under' (141.5) cashed. The 'under' is on a 4-1 run for the Scarlet Knights, and the under is 6-2 across the past eight for Rutgers.
