Last Saturday, the Boilermakers could only manage one touchdown in a 20-6 loss at home to Penn State, which was just enough to push the point spread per the closing NCAA football betting lines. Meanwhile, the Buckeyes have won three straight games after the disaster against USC in mid-September and once again are looking like the Big 10 favorites.
Last week, the Boilermaker offense struggled against a stout Nittany Lions defense, which ultimately saw them churn out their lowest point and yardage totals of the season. However, if it wasn’t for a missed extra point, they would have been able to cover the 14 point spread for college football betting fans.
QB Curtis Painter only completed 13-of-22 passes for 112 yards and an interception and was benched in the fourth quarter of the game due to poor play. For a team that is used to high scoring affairs, it is somewhat surprising that three of the Boilermakers’ four games have gone under the ‘total’ by the final college football wagering odds this season.
The Buckeyes offense has looked rejuvenated under super freshman QB Terrelle Pryor and his last minute touchdown run sealed the NCAA gambling win for Ohio State backers last weekend.
The return of RB Chris “Beanie” Wells has also greatly helped improve the Buckeyes offense we saw struggle at USC, rushing for 168 yards and a touchdown on 22 carries against a solid Wisconsin defense. Pryor and Wells’ performance were huge factors in the Buckeyes win allowing them to overcome the four fumbles they coughed up in the game.
The Buckeyes win against the Badgers last week also marked the first time they were able to cover the NCAA football odds this season. Currently, the college football gambling lines have the Buckeyes installed as 19-point home favorites with a ‘total’ of 44.5 points.
