No. 10 Penn State at No. 5 Michigan (12 p.m. ET Saturday, FOX)
How many total points will be scored in the game?
When these Big Ten rivals faced each other last season, the final score was Michigan over Penn State, 21-17. That game ended with a point total of 38.
However, the Wolverines’ point total in four of their six games this year has hit or exceeded 58. The total amount of points scored by both teams combined in Penn State games this year has hit or exceeded 47 four times.
At FOX Bet, the over/under for this game is 51.5
So we’re taking the average of 47 and 58 to pick the total points scored. Ride with me here.
52-54 points scored
Which team will have the most solo tackles, and how many will they have?
This one was easy. Michigan at home should be electric on defense. Look for them to rack up the stats on the defensive side of the football.
Which team will have the longest punt, and how long will it be?
Let’s show the Nittany Lions a little love here. Penn State punter, don’t let us down.
Penn State, 47 yards
Which team will have the longest play, and how long will that play be?
Imagine Blake Corum running almost the length of the field and into the end zone for 6 or the Wolverines’ special teams returning a punt for a TD. Expect big plays with a chance at the College Football Playoff still in play for both teams.
Which team will have the longest field goal, and how long will it be?
Kickers get a bad rap. Sure, they only have one job, but it’s stressful. However, we trust the Penn State kicker to deliver a winner here.
Penn State, 48-49 yards
Which team will win, and by how many points?
At FOX Bet, Michigan is favored by 7 points.
When the Wolverines are 6- to 8-point favorites under coach Jim Harbaugh, they’ve gone 4-2 straight up (SU) and 3-2-1 against the spread (ATS). Penn State, on the other hand, is 3-5 SU and 2-6 ATS against Michigan under coach James Franklin.
We like Michigan to win and cover.
Michigan by 8-9 points
