Penn State vs. Ohio State College Football Betting Odds (Free Pick)

Penn State Nittany Lions

Penn State vs. Ohio State betting odds opened at Penn State -2 ½ as the road favorite. At press time Tuesday the line had moved down to -2 at some online sports books.

In this series, the home team has gone 8-2 since 1998. Ohio State has not lost at home over that period of time. Furthermore, The Buckeyes are 7-3 against the Nittany Lions. Ohio State is also 6-4 Against The Spread over this same period of time.

Now it's not as if the Buckeyes are suddenly a bad team. Their record is 7-1 Straight Up while Penn State is 8-0.

The Buckeyes have not been very good Against The Spread, though perhaps that will change now that they are a +2 home underdog. They are 1-7 ATS in their last 8 games following a SU win of more than 20 points and 0-5 ATS in their last 5 home games vs. a team with a winning road record. Brutal!

Ohio State's one loss this season was pretty brutal as well. The offense was limited to 207 total yards as the quarterbacks were sacked five times and Todd Boeckman turned it over three times in a humiliating loss at the Coliseum against USC in a 35-3 dismantling.

The Buckeyes win against Michigan State last week was the best game of the season for the Ohio State defensive line.

Penn State's 46-17 win over Michigan on Saturday erased a nine-game, 12-year losing streak against the Wolverines. For a quarter, it looked as though that streak might continue; Michigan led 17-7 and was moving the ball at will with inside running. But some adjustments by the defense and seven consecutive scores by Penn State's balanced offense kept the Nittany Lions undefeated.

"It was good that it happened early instead of late," Penn State wide receiver Derrick Williams said of the Nittany Lions' sluggish start, which included a shotgun snap over Daryll Clark's head on the first play from scrimmage and a field-goal attempt that bounced off the right upright.

Now, Penn State will look to end another painful streak - seven straight losses at Ohio Stadium, where the Nittany Lions will meet No. 10 Ohio State on Saturday. The Nittany Lions hope they learned something from the slow start against Michigan.

"You need a game like that, where things just don't go your way all the time," Penn State coach Joe Paterno said. "Everything we've done has been so easy."
