It's the marquee game of the week and perhaps the most important game of the season thus far: Penn State vs. Ohio State.  One of these two teams will walk away with their first loss of the season.

The Line Move

Action was 76% on Penn State.  The line has wobbled between 4.5 and 5, mostly -4.5 favoring Ohio State.  CIrca has gone as high as 5.5 and dropped back to -4.5 Friday evening.  This now suggests books are looking to get more action on Ohio State to balance out the money, and thus making the Buckeyes less of an attractive play as earlier in the week.

#7 Penn State takes on #3 Ohio State in one of the biggest games of the season! These Big Ten Rivals are both undefeated coming into this high stakes showdown. Ohio State is a short home favorite by the NCAA football odds, but will they be the winning NCAAF pick for this game?

They'll go over the best value college football odds available and betting trends and share their College Football expert predictions, CFB picks, and best bets.

Segars notes that the Nittany Lions have covered six of the last seven games against the Buckeyes.

"Penn State 6-0 Against The Spread this season and they basically had two weeks to prep for this one."

Sagarin says the number should be Ohio State -4.5.  This one is right on the money.
