NCAA Football Wagering: PSU Nittany Lions vs. UW Badgers

Penn State (6-0 SU, 3-1-1 ATS) travels to Madison for a lack-luster Big Ten NCAA football wagering contest with the (3-2 SU, 2-3 ATS) Wisconsin Badgers.

Kickoff from Camp Randall is slated for 8:00 ET. Entering last Saturday’s showdown with Purdue, Penn State was averaging 50-points in its first five wins this season; the Boilermakers weren’t impressed.

Joe Tiller’s Purdue squad was determined to stop the PSU scoring machine led by QB Daryll Clark and triple-threat Sr. Derrick Williams, and that’s exactly what they did - Penn State was held to just 20-points in week-six, however, Purdue only managed a late fourth quarter touchdown run, and Joe Paterno escaped West Lafayette with a 20-6 victory; the 378th of his storied career.

The Nittany Lions out-gained Purdue 422-241 on total offense, led by So. RB Evan Royster, who ran for 141-yards and a TD, leaving NCAA football betting fans to scratch their heads as Penn State drew even with the college football betting line of 14-points.

If you look at last Saturday’s box score between Wisconsin and the visiting Buckeyes of Ohio State, everything seems even: total yards, turnovers, time of possession... everything except the final score, 20-17, which again, displeased the Badgers just as it did college football betting followers.

With 1:08 left in the game, Fr. QB Terrell Pryor scampered across the goal-line from 11-yards out, giving OSU its second lead in the fourth-quarter, one they would not relinquish despite Wisconsin’s late efforts behind Sr. QB Allen Evridge.

Aside from dropping its second straight contest, both in conference and against the NCAA odds, perhaps the worst aspect Wisconsin had to face last week, was seeing the nation’s second longest home winning streak (16-games) get snapped.

Now the Badgers find themselves in a deep, 0-2 hole in the Big Ten standings, and outside of the AP Top 25 poll for the first time this season. Wisconsin looks to build another dominant streak at home this weekend, and hand Penn State, a 5-point favorite, its first loss of 2008.
