Penn State Nittany Lions vs Wisconsin Badgers Betting Picks, Predictions,Odds & Lines

The Penn State Nittany Lions lost a lot of games this past season. They hope to do better next time by playing in Madison. The Wisconsin defense will be hard to beat. It was one of the best in the country last season.

People are betting on a game with not many points. This means that the total is low and is now 50. Wisconsin scored UNDER the total in each of its final four games last year. They had an average of 29 points in those games.

Notes On The Penn State Nittany Lions

The Nittany Lions have won 15 of their last 16 games in September. But they don’t always start with a hard game on the road. Penn State is about to start the season against a ranked team and it is also going to visit a Big Ten school. It hasn’t done this since 1994, except for last year when there was no conference.

This tough defense makes it hard for the Nittany Lions to play a game on the road. They have had three offensive coordinators in five years. Luckily, they now have Mike Yurcich as their new coach. He has led teams to score at least 40 points in more than half of their games since 2013.

Still, it is hard to not think about some problems that Penn State can have with their new attack. This is especially true if the fifth year senior quarterback Kyle Clifford does not stop making turnovers.Penn State’s offense has not been very good lately. They have gone UNDER in five of their last six games when they were the underdog, and three straight times are a road dog.

Notes On The Wisconsin Badgers

Wisconsin’s running game was not well last season. They were only in the Top 8 of the Big 10 and in 62nd place out of all teams. That is not as good as they used to be. But this year, they hope that their veteran offensive line will open up holes for Jalen Berger and company. Berger had 301 yards and 2 touchdowns in 4 games.

Improving the production on the ground would also help sophomore quarterback Graham Mertz. He had a good ratio of touchdowns to interceptions in his first two games, but not so much after that. The team was 4-0 when they did not have any turnovers, and 0-3 when they did.

Wisconsin has a good defense. They gave up less than 300 yards per game in 2020. Eight starters are returning from the defense, including Jack Sanborn and Leo Chenal, both of whom are very skilled linebackers. The defensive coordinator is also back for another year.

College Football Betting Pick & Prediction: Penn State +4.5

If you like betting on games, then you should bet on the Penn State Lions. It is difficult to tell what will happen. The Badgers have a good defense, but they do not know how their offense will work. On the other side, Penn State’s offense is good and they are ready for Week 1 of the season.

In the past four games between Penn State and Wisconsin, three of them were decided by seven points or less. If you are happy with slightly lower wages, go for Pennsylvania State who is playing as 7 point underdogs.


I think the Badgers will play good defense. But I also think they will have a hard time moving the ball around and running it on the other team. The under is a good bet for me because it has been in five of six recent games between these two teams. The Badgers will try hard to control the clock. Last year, they had the ball for a lot of time in their games. Penn State is ninth on this list.
