It is the last regular season game of the season for both of these Big 10 teams. The Nittany Lions are three-point road college football betting favorites in this game against the Spartans.
NCAA football betting has Penn State at 9-2 overall and that is a disappointing record since the Nittany Lions were expected to challenge for a Big 10 title. Michigan State is 6-5 and probably headed to a college football betting bowl game regardless of what they do in this game. This has been a close series through the years as Penn State leads 13-12-1.
Penn State is averaging 28.5 points per game this NCAA football betting season. Daryll Clark has completed 61.1 percent of his passes for 2,477 yards and 19 touchdowns but he has thrown 10 interceptions. Evan Royster has rushed for 990 yards and six touchdowns. Penn State is giving up only 11.6 points per NCAA football betting game.
This NCAA football betting game could be high scoring considering Michigan State is averaging 31 points per game. Kirk Cousins has thrown for 2,305 yards and 17 touchdowns this NCAA football betting season. The problem for the Spartans is a defense that is allowing 23.5 points per game.
Penn State has been solid on the road laying NCAA football betting points. The Nittany Lions are 7-1-1 vs. the NCAA football betting odds in their last 9 games as a road favorite. The concern is that Penn State is 1-5 ATS in their last 6 games in November. The Nittany Lions are 2-5 in their last 7 NCAA football betting meetings at Michigan State.
Michigan State has not been a good home team in NCAA football betting. The Spartans are 10-21 in their last 31 college football betting home games. They are a poor dog too as they are 1-5 ATS in their last 6 games as an underdog.
Four of the last five Penn State games have gone under the NCAA football betting total. On the road though, Penn State has gone over in four of their last five. Nine of the last twelve Michigan State home college football betting games have gone under. In this series, 10 of the last 13 have gone over.
