Penn State Opens as a Slim Betting Favorite Over Michigan State

With Michigan State coming off one of the worse beatdowns of the college football season in a 56-7 loss to Ohio State, it’ll be interesting to see just what team comes out against Penn State.

Circa Sports has set Penn State as a one-point favorite in a 3:30 p.m. game at Spartan Stadium in East Lansing, Michigan on Saturday. The over/under has been set at 53.5 points between two teams that excel in contrasting areas on offensive and defense.

DraftKings Sportsbook is higher on Michigan State than Penn State, setting the Spartans as a 1.5-point favorite. A bet against the spread for PSU holds -120 odds while the same bet for MSU holds +100 odds. The over/under is set at 53 points, with both options holding -110 odds.

Michigan State is 7-3-1 against the spread this season, failing to cover in losses to Ohio State and Purdue over the past three weeks. Penn State is 7-4 against the spread, failing to cover in three of four losses this season.

Penn State is 16-17-1 against Michigan State all-time, the first meeting coming in 1914. PSU has won two of the last three meetings, including a 39-24 win at Beaver Stadium last year, but MSU is 5-3 dating back to 2010.
