Any thoughts? I think Penn can cover with the points, but I've already been called crazy for saying so.

Yeah I like Ohio State Penn State hasn't covered since Claxton got injured and it really hasn't been close. THat game they dind't cover by 20 indiana they did manage a push and the other 2 games didn't cover by 21 and 10. Since the 2 home games were by 21 and 20 looks like the lines arent adjusting to claxton being out as I think Ohio State will cover this.

Ridge, I'm with nayrb ... Penn State hasn't scored 50 points in either of the two games since Claxton went down. If they hit 50 tonight at home they have to hold Ohio State under 60 to cover. I don;t think they can do that. Just one man's opinion ...

theres value at 7,8 maybe 9 but think about it , ohio st dosent care about winning by double digits on the road,, im personally going to put like a dollar on the under and 50 cent on ohio st , psu cant score at practice let alone against a tough osu team this game stays way under the total but if that were going to happen i would be a legend i just cant money on psu if your going to take a doggie tonight go with alabama should be a fast paced game bama looks good and should be a loud crowd .

Agree really like the under, in games w/o claxton they have really slowed the game pace down and this is the only chance they have of beating ohio state as well.

Penn State historically plays OSU well, especially at home. Everybody is on OSU. Big Ten road wins are tough regardless. Take the points.

Past history is one thing, Jay, but recent history says without claxton, PSU is a very bad team. I like Ohio State but the comments about the Under are well-taken. I think I'll make a play that way as well. If Penn State competes is will be at very slow tempo. Good Luck to you Jay.

Ohio St. and Under would be your best bet.

You all make good sense and bumstead I do follow your picks as you are a good capper but I am a local down here and as bad as PSU looks now without Claxton they have had a few tough games on the road and some shooters in a funk. These guys are bound to break out and I honestly feel the over is one of the best plays on the board. Best of luck on whatever direction you end up on.

There is no rational thinking in taking Penn St. They have absolutely gone in the tank with claxton's injury. Purdue, who had not put back to back road wins within the big ten in 5 years, had the Lions up by over 30 points on the road! If you choose to play this game, I don't see how you can throw your $$ towards Penn St. They need to show they can compete B4 I would spend my $$ their way. GL with all your picks.
