Last week, the Wolverines (2-4 SU, 1-5 ATS) were stunned at home 13-10 by a Toledo Rockets team that snapped Michigan’s unblemished 24-0 record against MAC teams. Meanwhile, the Nittany Lions continued their winning ways by crushing Wisconsin in Camp Randall 48-7, their largest win ever against the Badgers.
The Wolverines are in danger of having their first losing season in over 40 years in the opening campaign of Rich Rodriguez’s tenure as the leader of the maize and blue. Their college football betting loss against Toledo, a team which got beaten at home by lowly Florida International, has left the Michigan faithful antsy about the new coach’s scheme.
Again, both QBs Steven Threet and Nick Sheridan struggled, only throwing for 120 yards combined while throwing three interceptions combined. The Michigan defense also couldn’t stop Toledo WR Nick Moore who ended up with 20 grabs for 162 yards on the day.
The Wolverines have only played one road game on the year; a game that saw them fall by a 35-17 final count at Notre Dame ultimately failing to cover the NCAA wagering line. Penn State (6-0 SU, 4-1-1 ATS) has certainly looked like the team to beat in the Big 10 this year, winning all its games by at least two scores.
QB Daryll Clark has been tremendously accurate, completing 64.4% of his passes for 1360 yards and 10 touchdowns against just two interceptions. Clark currently is commanding the Big 10’s top offense that’s averaged 45.3 PPG to date.
With these numbers, it should come as no surprise to NCAA betting fans that four of Penn State’s six games have gone over the ‘total’ per the closing college football betting odds. The NCAA odds have the Nittany Lions currently sitting as lofty 23.5-point home favorites in this Big 10 battle with a total of 47.5.
