I'm going to the NCAAF bets this week, with a big 10 matchup with Penn State traveling to Rutgers.
A couple with a story as they are a rivalry game with the two teams fighting in the past and this year after many years they will play again and return to the same conference now. Of course, Penn is a historic and powerful school, but the punishments in the last two years have cost him and have it down.
Rutgers has been significantly improved lately, with 3 bowl games and three consecutive 9 + winning seasons. The key to this year's Rutgers is qb Gary Nova, a talent player who has started well this season with the support of a good running back and a team of talented receivers. His offensive line is experienced and well knit as well.
Penn State also has a good qb, although Nova has no experience with a strong hand. So far, Penn has not shown anything in the run game, though his offensive line does not seem so tied to the team becoming one-dimensional and supporting only the hand of qb. The rival defenses have so far been seen with qb having already dropped 4 picks this year. 2-0 is Penn, but far from convincing appearances, the expiration has won the UCF, and blatantly against the weak Akron. Already Penn is -5 on net. turnovers, worrying the stacks as he goes to his first difficult away game.
RUtgers made another win last week by reaching 2-0 without getting a great performance, but I think he was looking at today's game better, coming from a great double at Washington State. The two teams are not huge on the cards, and Penn's light favorite. it probably has more to do with the heavy jersey than the reality. It is quite likely to be a close match and in such a match I always look to get points even if you become the underdog. Best line at + 3.5 @ Bet365, with the value in 1.86.
