Betting Tips For Ohio Penn State - Ohio Rolls Over Ill-Prepared Penn State Team

Posted by Blake Frazier on 8/30/2012 7:13:35 PM

The Penn State football program will never be the same after the events of this most recent off-season. As Penn State tries to recover from the loss of 10 players to transfers as a result of the scandals, it finds itself in no condition to win a football game. That is evident when the Ohio Bobcats come to town and trample Penn State.

Why Ohio Will Win

The tidal wave of revelations and legal proceedings against past leaders of the Penn State football program that began in November of 2011 became all-consuming for the current Penn State players. The situation deteriorated quickly and it eventually claimed the health of the team's former iconic head coach, Joe Paterno. The college football betting websites were reporting that Paterno's dying concerns were about the tattered condition of the Penn State football program he had loved so much.

The aftermath of the summer's scandal devastated the Nittany Lions on the field and in the minds of every player in the locker room. Ohio is last year's winner of the Mid-American Conference East Division title. This is a team with a significant amount of returning players that know how to win big games. This is football, and the Ohio players don't mean anything personal by it, but they know that Penn State is ripe for the picking.

Why Penn State Will Win

Many Penn State supporters will say that only 10 players transferred as part of the fallout of the scandal. The betting sites know that Penn State will miss running back Silas Redd as he has moved on to USC. But most of the Penn State offense has remained intact through the scandal, and it is an offense that can put up points.

Penn State is famous for its defense, and that defense has also largely remained intact. The team did lose a couple of promising linebacker prospects, but the returning linebackers are still in place. This is still a team capable of winning a football game when it wants to.

Who Will Win

Ohio will be intimidated by Penn State at the opening kickoff, but the lack of cohesion that Penn State will display in this first game will give Ohio confidence. Penn State will improve as the season goes on and the team will make a good showing of itself. But the raw emotion and chaotic nature of the team heading into this first game will be its undoing. It may almost be better if this game was not at home for Penn State. But it is being played in Penn State's stadium, and the team will not be able to focus.

Pick: Ohio
