Penn State simply can’t solve Ohio State. The Nittany Lions (+17) fell to the Buckeyes 33-24, losing their third straight game. Penn State has only beaten Ohio State once since 2016. However, although Penn State can’t beat the Buckeyes, they often cover the point spread against them. In their last five matchups, Penn State has covered four times.

After starting the season 5-0, Penn State was +3000 win the College Football National Championship. Now, at 5-3, their odds are +50,000. Their odds for a Big Ten Championship were +500, now they are +50,000.

Maryland (5-3 overall, 2-3 Big Ten) hosts Penn State on Saturday afternoon and the Terrapins will be double-digit home underdogs. Sports betting apps have the Nittany Lions as 11-point favorites.
