College Football Betting Trends
The Bulls have hit the over in four straight games in September and in four straight following a win.
The Nittany Lions have hit the over in seven straight non-conference games and in 11 of its last 14 games following a win.
Penn State proved last week that its going to try and score as much as it can. The Nittany Lions didn’t need to put up 79 points last week, but did anyway. Buffalo is a better defensive team, but the Bulls are likely to struggle with Penn State’s offense as well. The total is being set pretty low for a team that is out to put up big numbers. Buffalo should be able to manufacture some scoring drives to help hit the over while Penn State goes over 40 points.
