Buckeyes vs. Nittany Lions Breakdown and Betting Odds

Ohio State vs. Penn State is always a heated Big 10 rivalry but even more so in 2022 as the Buckeyes come in ranked 2nd in the country with an undefeated 7-0 record and the Nittany Lions are ranked 13th with a 6-1 record.

The Buckeyes are 15.5-point favorites, and the over/under is set at 61.

Ohio State Overview

Ohio State has averaged 49.5 points per game through seven weeks. In the Week 1 Notre Dame game, the Buckeyes scored 21 points but have not looked back since, scoring between 45 and 77 points in the following six games.

Quarterback C.J. Stroud has a talented corps of wide receivers to work with, led by Emeka Egbuka, Marvin Harrison Jr., and Julian Fleming have been consistent playmakers.

Penn State Overview

The Nittany Lions’ only loss came at The Big House to Michigan; otherwise, they have played well in 2022. Quarterback Sean Clifford is the reigning Big 10 Offensive Player of the Week for leading the team on a second-half surge against Minnesota. Penn State has averaged 33.4 points per game.

Except for the Michigan game, PSU has leaned on its impressive running duo of Nick Singleton and Kaytron Allen who have collectively scored nine touchdowns.

Free Pick: Over 61

Ohio State is the favorite, but a homefield advantage could come into play at a packed Beaver Stadium. PSU fans could not attend this game the last time it was played here in 2020 because of COVID-19. Expect an evenly matched game so long as Penn State’s offense can keep pace with Ohio State’s offensive scoring. Regardless, these teams will score over 61 points on the day.
