Central Michigan at Penn State - 9/24/22 College Football Picks and Prediction

Click Here for the Latest Odds

The Central Michigan Chippewas and Penn State Nittany Lions face off on Saturday in a Week 4 college football showdown at Beaver Stadium. 

Central Michigan has gotten out to a slow start to the season and they sit with a 1-2 record. The only win came in the last game against Bucknell and the offense was strong scoring 41 points on the way to the victory. In the first game of the season against Oklahoma State, Central Michigan scored 44 points, but the defense gave up 58, and that led to the loss. The Chippewas offense has been fine averaging 36.3 points per game. Unde center for Central Michigan is Daniel Richardson and he completed 15 of his 32 passes for 198 yards, two touchdowns, and one interception. 

On the other side of this matchup is Penn State who sit with a perfect 3-0 record and they have looked dominant. They have wins over Purdue, Ohio, and Auburn, and in the last game, they looked dominant. Penn State went on the road and beat Auburn 41-12. Sean Clifford completed 14 of his 19 passes for 178 yards. Nick Singleton also rushed 10 times for 124 yards and two touchdowns. The Auburn defense also had two interceptions. Penn State’s defense is giving up only 17.67 points per game which is quite impressive considering the level of competition they have played so far this season. 

Penn State is 5-0 against the spread in their last five games against the MAC. The over is 4-0 in Penn State’s last four games in September. The under is 6-0 in Nittany Lion's last 6 home games vs. a team with a losing road record.

Central Michigan’s offense has been solid this season, but I expect they are going to really struggle to move the ball against the Penn State defense. The Chippewas also gave up 58 points to Oklahoma State and I expect Penn State is going to score at least that many in this game. Penn State is going to win this game in blowout fashion. Back Penn State to come away with a cover of the spread. 

The pick in this article is the opinion of the writer, not a PickDawgz site consensus.
