Penn State is 4-1 against the spread in their last five games overall. Ohio State is 1-4 against the spread in their last five games against a team with a losing straight up record. The under is 7-1 in Penn State’s last eight games overall. The under is 4-1 in Penn State’s last five games played on a neutral site. 

Penn State knows if they want a chance in this game they need to keep the pace slow, and I expect they are going to really slow down the pace. Look for Ohio State to be fine playing that pace, and that is going to lead to this game staying under the total. Back the under.
