No. 9 Penn State Football Opens As 11.5-Point Favorite Over Maryland

Another game is projected in favor of Penn State football.

After an hard-fought 33-24 victory against Indiana in their last time out, the Nittany Lions have failed to cover the spread twice in a row for the first time this season, lowering its record against the spread to 6-2.

However, the back-and-forth game hit the over, set at 44.5 points, making the Nittany Lions 5-3 this season in the over-under battle.

This week, the Nittany Lions will hit the road in a matchup against the Maryland Terrapins as their regular season begins to wind down. FanDuel currently has the spread set at 11.5 points in favor of Penn State football, with an over-under of 50.5 points as well.

So far this season, Maryland has a less-than-stellar 3-5 record against the spread, while also registering a measly 4-4 on the over/under.

In their last nine matchups, the Nittany Lions are 7-2 head-to-head and 6-3 against the spread.

The Penn State—Maryland matchup will kick off at 3:30 p.m. in College Park, Maryland, and will be broadcast on FOX.
