NCAA College Football Betting Odds Preview: Penn State. The Nittany Lions have relied on a top-ten defense to make it to 3-1, but will need a much-improved effort from their offense to knock off a ranked opponent. Penn State was nearly completely shut out by the Crimson Tide in their only College Football Picks loss of the college football betting season, and while they have put out at least 22 points in all three of their wins, none have come against teams from bigger conferences. Quarterback Robert Bolden has thrown for 823 yards and three touchdowns, but has also tossed five interceptions and never registered a completion percentage higher than 69. With the freshman signal-caller continuing to struggle, head coach Joe Paterno will turn to the running game to pick up the slack, focusing on star running back Evan Royster. Despite only once topping 40 yards, that accomplishment was in his last game, when the freshman rushed for 187 yards. With an averaged of over 5.5 yards per carry on the season, Royster will be the key to the Nittany Lions clinching a crucial road win. Get a $25 Free Play when you sign-up at BetOnline.

While the Nittany Lions rank eighth in the nation on defense, the Hawkeyes rank fifth, and have allowed one score or fewer in three of their four games. Quarterback Rob Stanzi is throwing nines, as the senior has tossed 99 attempts for 999 yards and nine touchdowns through four games. What’s even more impressive about his play is that Stanzi has thrown just one interception over that time, avoiding the crucial mistakes that cost teams big games. As long as the Hawkeyes can avoid turnovers, they should be able to clinch a crucial home game this Saturday.
