#7 Penn State at #3 Ohio State Odds, Trends and Prediction in Week 8


Week 8 College Football Odds: #7 Penn State at #3 Ohio State. Over the course of a season, every team in college football has a game or two on their schedule that stands out when compared to the rest. | MyBookie Sportsbook | 2023 College Football Betting | Regular Season: August 26 to December 9 | : Tuesday, October 17 to Saturday, October 21, 2023


As we get into the thick of the conference schedules, we see those types of games coming on a regular basis. This is one of them, with both of these teams coming in with a perfect record as they loom to win the Big Ten East Division and potentially secure a spot in the playoffs. Ohio State has the edge in terms of the rankings right now, but the fact of the matter is that there is very little between these teams at the moment, which is something that you can see by looking at the odds for this one. The Buckeyes have home field advantage and are currently in as a 4-point favorite. The O/U for this one is set at 47.

Why bet on the Penn State Nittany Lions

Penn State comes into this game sitting at 6-0 on the season, and while they have been very good to this point, this is far and away a tougher matchup than anything else they have faced to this point. All you can do, though, is play what the schedule gives you, which the Nittany Lions have done very well, looking solid on both sides of the football. Penn State is now on a run that has seen them win 7 in a row against teams from the Big Ten, but the flipside of that is that they are 0-6 SU in their last 6 meetings with the Buckeyes. While they haven’t been able to cover the spread in 6 of their last 7 against the Buckeyes, plus they are on a run of 7 straight games where they have covered. In road games, the Nittany Lions have seen the OVER hit in 7 of their last 8.

Why bet on the Ohio State Buckeyes

It has now been 2 straight seasons without playoff football for the Buckeyes, which is not a good thing for a team that is expected to be there every year. They are always in the hunt, though, with their final game of the season against the Michigan Wolverines very often the one that decides who is in or out. That matchup looms large, but the Buckeyes have some hard work ahead of them if that upcoming game is to be as meaningful as they would hope. It starts this weekend with an absolutely huge game that could serve as a Conference Championship elimination game. Ohio State has dominated Penn State of late, as we mentioned above, and they have also been great at home, winning 16 of their last 17 in their own building. They are also 12-2-1 ATS in their last 15 games played in the month of October. The OVER has hit in 7 of their last 9 games versus teams in the East Division.

College Football Expert Pick and Series Prediction

This is a matchup that is far and away the biggest one on the schedule this weekend. I expect this to be a close game that might well come down to who gets the ball last. I think the Buckeyes edge it, with the OVER the bet that I really like here.
