Alabama vs. Penn State Preview and Pick
In one of the Marquee games of the weekend, two proud, historic programs hook up to do battle when the Alabama Crimson Tide visit State College to take on the Penn State Nittany Lions. Alabama opened as a -10.5 favorite at 5 Dimes and bettors picked off the 10.5's and 10's as they took the home dog Penn State, dropping the line to -9.5 at most shops as of Tuesday.
This is a revenge game for Penn State as they were spanked last year by Bama, 24-3, all without star running back Mark Ingram, who now plays on Sundays. Whether or not Penn State can get that revenge remains to be seen. Last year they weren't able to compete with the upper class. They were beaten soundly by Bama, Ohio State and Iowa, their toughest opponents, with their wins coming against lower to middle class teams on their way to a 7-6 season.
Alabama on the other hand, lined them up and knocked them down once again, with the exception of losses to South Carolina, LSU and National Champ Auburn, all close games. While they are once again loaded and retained most of their key starters, they did lose their top 3 playmakers from the offense, QB McElroy, RB Ingram and WR Julio Jones.
Both teams opened their seasons a week ago and romped as expected with Alabama taking out Kent State 48-7 and Penn State taking out Indiana State 41-7. Both Penn State and Alabama complete dominated, as expected, nicely setting up this weeks showdown.
Long time readers of Bettorsworld already know which way we're going to go here. Give us a little revenge, a very generous spot, a home crowd of 100,000+ to go along with a world class college football program and coach and are only question is, "where do we sign"? It's a set of circumstances that, if played 100 times, we're confident we'll get 55 wins or so from.
As of this early week writing, this is NOT a key release. We still have plenty of questions we need answered concerning Penn State and we'll likely get many of those answers by the time halftime rolls around Saturday. Specifically, Penn State comes into this one with big question marks on both lines, not where you want to have a weakness when you're facing the tide.
For now, an opinion only on Penn State and only at +10 or more. If anything changes, we'll let you know, so be sure to sign up for our newsletter!
