Saturday Setup: Penn State Odds

Without question, the biggest story in college football and in sports is the Penn State scandal, which could definitely have an effect on the betting aspect of the game as well.

 

In this Saturday College Football Wagering Setup we’ll go into some details on that game and some other important injury and weather news around the world of college football betting.

Penn State in turmoil

Shockwaves have been flooding through the Penn State program all week amongst one of the biggest scandals in sports history, and as a result, the Nittany Lions will be without coaches Joe Paterno and Mike McQueary on the sidelines this week. It’s hard to imagine that Penn State’s players will be able to focus. Nebraska is a 3.5-point road favorite at Bovada.

Army’s two top rushers out Saturday

Already without their starting quarterback and second leading rusher Trent Steelman, Army lost their leading rusher, Raymond Maples, in practice this week to an undisclosed injury. With both of Army’s top rushers out, offense will likely be difficult to come by this week. Rutgers is a 7-point favorite at 5Dimes, and the game will be played at Yankee Stadium.

San Jose State at Utah State likely to see snow

While many bettors might skip over a game like San Jose State at Utah State, it’s worth taking a closer look at this week with the forecast predicting snow. With a fairly high total currently set at 54 at BetOnline, the UNDER could definitely be worth a play if it does indeed snow Saturday. It also doesn’t hurt that five of the last six games between these two teams have gone UNDER the total.

Connor Shaw cleared to play against Florida

After last week’s loss against Arkansas, South Carolina no longer controls their own destiny in the SEC East, but they can put the pressure on Georgia with a win over Florida this week. Connor Shaw suffered a concussion in the Arkansas game, but he has been cleared to play and will start Saturday, which is great news for the Gamecocks’ offense. South Carolina is a 3-point favorite at TopBet.
