Pick: Michigan -4.5 (-110)
Saturday afternoon takes us to one of the most important matchups of the entire college football regular season. As Michigan heads to Happy Valley to play Penn State in this week 11 matchup and the winner of this game would keep themselves in the running to win the Big Ten East division title. Both of these teams are enjoying pretty successful seasons and both of them will be looking to grab a massive victory here on Saturday afternoon as they head into their final two regular season games over the next two weeks. The winner of this game would also put themselves in a position for a possible spot in the college football playoffs, or a bowl bid to a major New Year’s Six bowl game as well.
Michigan is off to an absolutely incredible start this season as they will be looking for their third consecutive college football playoff appearance at the end of the regular season. It’ll be interesting to see how they handle this game with all the off the field drama surrounding their program at the moment as they get their first real test of the season on the road against Penn State here on Saturday afternoon. They come into this game, riding a nine game winning streak and they will be looking to take one step closer to completing their second consecutive undefeated season as well.
A victory in this game established them in first place of the Big Ten East division only a couple of weeks before their showdown with Ohio State who will likely also be undefeated heading into that game and the winner of that game will pretty much clinch their spot in the college football playoffs this season. Michigan has been playing solid football throughout their first nine games of the season and they will be looking for another quality performance here on Saturday and their first road test of the year as they look overcome Penn State and essentially take Penn State out of the running for both the Big Ten conference championship game and the playoff race as well.

Penn State has had a pretty solid season up at this point of the year and they will be looking for that marquee victory here on Saturday afternoon at home against Michigan. They came up a few weeks ago against Ohio State and now they will be looking for that statement. Victory here, and this one on Saturday afternoon as they look to keep themselves in the college football playoff race as well as the Big Ten division title race and potentially secure themselves a spot in the Big Ten conference championship game as well. Penn State is currently undefeated at home this season and they will be looking to uphold their undefeated record at Beaver Stadium with another victory here on Saturday afternoon.
This will be their second tough test of the season and redshirt freshman quarterback Drew Allar will be looking to live up to the hype and get a massive victory at home for Penn State over Michigan here in this one on Saturday afternoon. They have been a pretty consistent football team throughout the last several seasons, but the two hurdles they have been unable to overcome or both Ohio State and Michigan and they will be looking to take down one of those hurdles with a quality performance here in this one. A victory for Penn State would at least clinch them a spot in the New Year’s Bowl potentially as long as they don’t slip up over the last few games of the season.
Betting trends to consider in this matchup:
- Michigan is 3-0 on the road this season
- Penn State is 1-1 against ranked opponents
- Penn State is 0-1 as an underdog this season
I expect this to be a close and competitive game here on Saturday afternoon. These two teams are two of the top three teams in the Big Ten conference and they will both be looking for a crucial victory here on Saturday. With a win both of them look to keep themselves in the hunt for the college football playoffs and a potential spot in the Big Ten Conference championship game. I expect this to be a back and forth game but in the end I look for Michigan to come out on top against the Nittany Lions of Penn State.As always, get our VIP Pick Free Tonight by Clicking Here!
