Penn State football is still more than three months away from kicking off its 2024 season.

But it’s never too early to talk about betting.

Before mid-May, a betting outlet has set a high win total for PSU.

Circa Sports has set the over/under at 10.

This shouldn’t come as a surprise for Penn State fans.

In the past eight seasons, Penn State has finished the regular season 10-2 five times and ended the overall season 11-2 four times, with last year being the lone exception due to the team’s Peach Bowl loss to Ole Miss. Penn State’s one of six Power Four teams with the O/U set in the double digits. The others are Georgia (10 1/2),  Notre Dame (10), Ohio State (10 1/2), Oregon (10 1/2) and Texas (10 and 1/2).

Of those teams, Ohio State’s the only one Penn State has on its regular season schedule, with that game set for Nov. 2 in Beaver Stadium.

Here’s what the o/u looks like for the rest of Penn State’s opponents:

West Virginia: 6 1/2

Illinois: 5  1/2

UCLA: 5 1/2

USC: 7 1/2

Wisconsin: 6 1/2

Washington: 7

Purdue: 4

Minnesota: 5 

Maryland: 6 1/2

Based on that metric, Penn State’s toughest regular season game is at USC Oct. 19.

That game will be one to watch for a number of reasons.

For one, it pits two of college football’s most storied programs against each other inside one of college football’s most famous settings, Los Angelous Memorial Coliseum (better known as (“The Coliseum”). But more importantly, it will be the first time Penn State and USC play since the latter joined the Big Ten prior to this season.

But before Penn State can focus on USC or anyone else, it must beat West Virginia Week 1.
