Beaver Stadium is bracing for a shootout this Saturday. Two of the countries highest scoring offenses go head-to-head when No. 9 Penn State hosts No. 4 Ohio State.
The college football Week 5 line favors the Buckeyes by a field goal to beat the Nittany Lions. But there is much more on the line. A chance to play for a conference title and even a potential College Football Playoff berth.
Ohio State vs Penn State Line & Pick College Football Week 5
Why Bet On Ohio State
Ohio State (4-0, 1-0 Big Ten) is 4-0 SU and 3-1 ATS this season. The Buckeyes have been favored by at least 35 points in three of its four games this season. So why should you bet on OSU when the betting line is 3-points?
OSU is third in the nation in total offense. The Buckeyes are averaging 54.5 points per game that included a 77-point eruption in Week 1 versus Oregon State.
Why Bet On Penn State
Penn State (4-0, 1-0 Big Ten) is no offensive slouch either, averaging 55.5 points per game. In the last two games, PSU scored a combined 126-points.
The James Franklin coached Nittany Lions are 2-3 straight up and 3-2 against the spread when getting points at Beaver Stadium. Moreover, the Penn State is 2-0 in their last two games as home dogs.
Ohio State vs Penn State Pick Week 5
Do you remember a game with two more high-scoring offenses going head-to-head? I don’t. The over/under line for this game stands at 70.5.
The game total has gone over in nine of Ohio State’s last 12 Big Ten conference games. Combine that with Penn State’s game total going over in six of its last seven Big Ten conference games and I am betting the over.
