The Nittany Lions are not a great team but they are decent and they should have no trouble on Saturday in college football betting against Kent State.
Penn State is not going to win anything of substance as long as Joe Paterno is still their head coach. He should have retired many years ago and anyone that watches Penn State should realize that fact. Paterno was once a very good football coach but that was a decade ago. The Nittany Lions are simply not a Top 25 team.
Penn State Laying Three Touchdowns – The Nittany Lions are laying 21 points at sbg global.com. That sounds like a lot considering the Nittany Lions offense has been rotten this season. Running back Evan Royster has only 72 yards on 20 carries this season. Wide receiver Graham Zug has not even caught a pass this season. True freshman quarterback Rob Bolden has completed 33 of 58 passes for 383 yards and two TDs but he also has thrown three interceptions. Penn State turned it over four times in the loss to Alabama.
Why is Penn State Ranked? The Nittany Lions are still ranked #20 in the USA Today coaches’ poll. What a joke. The Nittany Lions are not a team that should be ranked at all. They have a freshman quarterback, a coach who has no idea what he is doing and an average defense.
Penn State Can Cover this Week – Now that we have ripped how rotten Penn State is, they still are not a bad bet this week in NCAA online betting. Kent State is a weak MAC team that Penn State should be able to run over. Paterno can yell at his team and they should play hard against an inferior opponent. The Nittany Lions won’t need much coaching after last week and they shouldn’t need much of a game plan. Their talent should win out. That doesn’t mean they are a guarantee to cover though. Kent State is 8-2-1 ATS in their last 11 games overall but they are 0-4 ATS in their last 4 vs. the Big Ten.
