Bet The Pittsburgh Panthers Spread at +6 Because…
They didn’t look very good defensively, but Pittsburgh managed to get past Penn State on Saturday in its high-scoring 42-39 win over the Nittany Lions in a contest that renewed their once longstanding rivalry against Penn State.
Beloved running back James Conner ran for 117 yards and one touchdown and caught another touchdown pass in the win while and senior Ryan Lewis picked off Penn State quarterback Trace McSorley in the end zone with just over a minute left in regulation to secure the win. Panthers quarterback Nathan Peterman completed 11 of 15 pass attempts for 91 yards with three touchdowns. Defensively, Pittsburgh is allowing 23 points and 289 yards per game.
Bet The Oklahoma State Cowboys Spread at -6 Because…
Oklahoma State was on the wrong end of a heartbreaking 30-27 loss to Central Michigan that came on the game’s final play.
A misinterpreted rule (who cares?) extended the game when Oklahoma State quarterback Mason Rudolph threw away the ball on fourth down as the clock expired. The play backfired after the officials conferred and assessed an intentional grounding penalty and gave Central Michigan another play.
Corey Willis scored the winning touchdown after grabbing a lateral from Jesse Kroll at the Oklahoma State 12-yard line and fighting his way into the end zone.
"That’s a tough one. Just so everyone knows, I was the one who called the passing play," said OSU coach Mike Gundy.
Rudolph completed 27 of 43 pass attempts for 286 yards with two touchdowns and one interception. Defensively, Oklahoma State is allowing just 18.5 points and 310.5 yards per game.
Expert Pick & Final Score Prediction
I have no idea why Oklahoma State is a 6.5-point favorite against a Pittsburgh team that matches up very well against them.
With the Panthers going 6-2 ATS in their last eight road games and the Cowboys going just 3-8 ATS in their last 11 games following a ATS loss and 1-5 ATS in their last 6 games overall, I like Pittsburgh to cover the spread in a narrow loss, while pushing the Cowboys for the outright win.
Pittsburgh has massive girth on both, their offensive and defensive lines and could give the Oklahoma State’s once-vaunted rushing attack problems in this matchup while James Conner gives Oklahoma State’s defense fits
