Will OVER Continue To Cash When Minnesota Opens Big Ten Play?

The Minnesota Golden Gophers have proven they belong among the nation’s upper echelon through the early days of this season thanks to their high-powered offense. Minnesota is 19th in the nation in points per game and, 13th in rebounds and 27th in assists – leading them to going OVER in six of their seven games with a listed total. However, will the Gophers be able to keep that up against a staunch Rutgers Scarlet Knights’ defense Sunday?

Shark Bites
  • Rutgers is 4-21 SU in their last 25 road games.
  • Minnesota is 5-2 ATS in their last 7 games at home.
  • Minnesota is 6-1 SU in their 7 games vs Rutgers since the Scarlet Knights joined the Big Ten.

Though Minnesota’s offense has been rolling, their defense still has some exploitable holes. The Gophers lost to Miami’s four-guard lineup in their most recent game, thanks largely to the Hurricanes’ speed in the pick-and-roll game. Jordan Murphy, who is one of the top five players in the Big Ten, is averaging 21.5 points and 12.5 rebounds per game.

Rutgers has spent most of the season beating up on some downright bad competition but their defense held up in their first real test vs Florida State in their most recent outing. The issue, which is not a surprise, was the Scarlet Knights lackluster offense. The squad is averaging just 73.7 points while shooting 42.7% from the field and 26.2% from three-point range.
