Why Penn State can cover

Penn State opened the season with a win and coverage as the 3.5-point favorite at Purdue, but the 35-31 final caught no attention. The same cannot be said after the Nittany Lions beat Auburn in a 41-12 away win last week and improved to 3-0 this season. It was a well-rounded performance from Penn State as quarterback Sean Clifford threw for 178 yards while running back Nicholas Singleton threw for 124 yards and two touchdowns on just 10 carries.

The Nittany Lions struggled along the offensive line last season, but those issues appear to have been rectified in the offseason. They averaged 6.3 yards per carry against Auburn and should be just as successful against an underpowered Central Michigan team. Penn State has won and marked in 14 of its last 20 games while also marking in five straight games against MAC opponents.

Why Central Michigan Can Cover

Central Michigan is no stranger to this level of competition, having beaten No. 12 Oklahoma State back in Week 1. The Chippewas hung around in that game, putting up 44 points and covering the 20.5-point spread in a 58-44 defeat off. They covered the spread again last week, dominating Bucknell from start to finish in a 41-0 blowout.

Sophomore quarterback Daniel Richardson has been one of the nation’s best passers so far this season, throwing for 909 yards and seven touchdowns. It will be difficult for Penn State to fully focus on this game after their big win last week and a conference game against Northwestern next week. Central Michigan has covered the spread in eight of its last 11 road games and is poised to cover the big number again on Saturday.
