Good teams win. Great teams cover.

Penn State opens this week as a 17-point favorite against visiting Pittsburgh.

The Nittany Lions 2-0 against the spread this year and 2-1 against the spread versus Pitt since the series was renewed in 2016.

Last week the Nittany Lions covered late after a sluggish start against Buffalo under the lights.

Pitt is 1-1 straight up and 1-1 against the spread this year, with a win and cover against Ohio this past Saturday.
