College Football Betting Preview
Penn State (6-0) at Wisconsin (3-2)
Saturday, 8:00 pm Eastern – ESPN
SBG Global Opening Line: Penn State – 5 , Total 47
The Wisconsin Badgers will try and avoid starting 0-3 in the Big 10 as they host 6th ranked Penn State on Saturday night. To get the win the Badgers will have to slow down the Big Ten’s best offense. The Nittany Lions are averaging almost 500 yards per game, 9th best in the nation. They are scoring 44.8 points per game which ranks 7th in the country. Quarterback Daryll Clark has thrown 9 touchdowns with only one interception this season while running back Evan Royster has eight touchdowns this season.
“They’re a great team and they have a great quarterback, a great corps of receivers that can run,” Wisconsin cornerback Allen Langford said. “They have a great tight end and two good running backs … so they’re definitely going to be a difficult task.”
SBG Global reports that early College Football betting has the public taking Penn State on the Road.
The Badgers have not had much luck this season, losing 27-25 at Michigan and then last week 20-17 to Ohio State. “The expectations are high on this team, and we’d like them to be high,” Wisconsin coach Bret Bielema said. “And we’re five points away from being a 5-0 football team. We’ve got a tremendous challenge on our hands and an opportunity to right the ship.”
