Penn State Football vs. WVU Pick:

West Virginia has only beaten Penn State Football nine times in the 59-game history. Penn State last matched up against West Virginia in 1992!

The over-50 is a possibility of a good bet. However, it is the first game of the season, so teams might start slowly.

I would lean on Penn State -20.5 as they could cakewalk this game by three touchdowns.

Prediction: Penn State 45  West Virginia 17

Big Ten Pick of the Week

Northwestern (+6.5) vs. Rutgers: Noon, CBS

Look, Northwestern has had quite the offseason, not in a good way.

This game is like when Penn State went through dark times, and the team rallied against each other and won some games.

I would not be surprised if Northwestern covered the spread and beat Rutgers outright.
