Point spread dropping in UM vs. PSU
Despite public bettors backing Michigan, the line for the Wolverines' game versus Penn State today at 12:00PM ET continues to move in favor of the Nittany Lions.
Our College Football Public Betting page shows that 61% of public bettors are currently backing Michigan to cover the spread versus Penn State, which is currently a 3.5-point home favorite according to oddsmakers from online sports book Mybookie.ag.
The Wolverines opened as a 5.5-point favorite earlier in the week but by Wednesday the line had dropped to 4.5 at some sports books. By Saturday night, the line was down to 3.5 and it would appear to have settled at that spot.
