Penn State Football’s 2022 Season Betting Lines

Today’s the day, folks.

After 243 long days, Penn State football is finally back with a prime-time matchup against Purdue at Ross-Ade Stadium.

With the season almost underway, early betting lines are available for six of Penn State’s twelve games. Here are the game spreads that are currently available on FanDuel Sportsbook:

  • September 1: Penn State (-3.5) at Purdue
  • September 17: Penn State (-2.5) at Auburn
  • October 15: Penn State (+6.5) at Michigan
  • October 22: Minnesota at Penn State (-9.5)
  • October 29: Ohio State at Penn State (+13.5)
  • November 26: Michigan State at Penn State (-6.5)

Most notably, the Nittany Lions are currently a 9.5-point favorite in their White Out duel with Minnesota and then 13.5-point underdogs just one week later against Ohio State. Thursday night, Penn State is a 3.5-point favorite over Purdue and has 5/9 odds to win the game outright.

The futures market isn’t too bullish on the Nittany Lions. Penn State’s win total is set to 8.0, with over paying out 2/3 and 5/4 for the under. The odds for winning it all aren’t too great, either, as the Nittany Lions are 100/1 to go the distance and win a national title this season. Here are the odds for different winning milestones this season:

  • More Than 10 Games: 3/1
  • Big Ten East Division: 8/1
  • Big Ten Conference: 13/1 (DraftKings Sportsbook)
  • National Championship: 100/1

Ohio State and Michigan both lie ahead of Penn State for odds of winning the Big Ten East with each team at 1/3 and 6/1, respectively. Wisconsin has the same 100/1 odds to win the national title as the Nittany Lions.

On an interesting note, DraftKings Sportsbook has a Pennsylvania college football special, putting Penn State and Pitt against each other for head-to-head wins. Both teams have the same 10/11 odds to earn more wins than the other. The special is only available for bettors inside the Commonwealth.

For the Heisman Trophy, Sean Clifford has 120/1 odds to win, and wide receiver Parker Washington is set at 200/1. Former Penn State quarterback and current Kentucky starter Will Levis has 100/1 odds to win the trophy.
