College Football Week 3 Game Of The Week: Penn State Vs. Auburn

  • The Penn State Nittany Lions have -115 odds to cover the 6.0-point spread against the Auburn Tigers.
  • The total for the game is set at 53.0 points with the UNDER being a -115 betting favorite.

STATE COLLEGE, Pa. - The Penn State Nittany Lions will host the Auburn Tigers in a Whiteout on Saturday night with a meeting between two ranked teams. Both programs enter the game with a 2-0 record.

Betting The Spread

The Penn State Nittany Lions are 2-0 ATS this season but the same can be said about the Auburn Tigers. Auburn has won their last two games by scores of 60-10 and 62-0 but have done so against Akron and Alabama State. Online gambling sites expect a different result against their first formidable opponent.

Penn State Vs. Auburn Spread Odds

  • Penn State Nittany Lions -6.0 -115
  • Auburn Tigers +6.0 -105

Not only will Auburn be playing their first Power 5 team with Penn State, but they’ll be doing so in one of the toughest environments in college football in form of the Whiteout.

Auburn has looked good, however, it’s tough to tell if it will transfer over against respectable football teams. Penn State already has a ranked win and will be playing with a serious home-field advantage. It should be enough for PSU to be able to cover the spread.

Betting The Total: 53.0 Points

Despite Auburn putting up 60+ points in both of their games this season, college football betting sites have set the total at a lesser number.

Penn State Vs. Auburn Total Odds

  • OVER 53.0 -105
  • UNDER 53.0 -115

The Penn State defense has allowed an average of 11.5 points per game while Auburn’s defense has allowed just 5.0 points per game. Scoring could very likely be at a premium in this game, as Auburn is allowing just 182 yards per game which is the third-best in the NCAA. It’s tough to see either team having a great offensive performance. This matchup has all the makings of a low-scoring affair.

The game will be broadcast live on ABC on Saturday at 7:30 p.m. EST.
