No. 22 Penn State Opens As Three-Point Betting Favorite Against Auburn

Penn State football fans, get those sportsbooks ready.

The No. 22 Nittany Lions opened as a three-point road favorite over SEC foe Auburn, according to Oddsshark. Although both teams are 2-0, the Tigers host Penn State after sputtering against San Jose State and only narrowly escaping with a victory.

The over/under is set at 49 points, and the over has hit in both of the Nittany Lions’ first two games. Last year, Penn State and Auburn went under the points total at Beaver Stadium.

While Penn State is undefeated against the spread, Auburn is 0-2. Last year, Penn State covered the five-point number in its 28-20 White Out victory over the Tigers.

Penn State also enters Saturday’s matchup in the AP Top 25 Poll, checking in at No. 22 after being unranked since last November. Auburn received just four votes in the latest poll.

The showdown is set to kick off at 3:30 p.m. at Jordan-Hare Stadium and will be broadcast on CBS.
