The Rutgers Scarlet Knights (2-4) and Penn State Nittany Lions (5-1), both aim to win their first consecutive winning streak in 2020. Both teams celebrated victories last week.

Rutgers halted a streak of four consecutive games of bad luck by defeating Purdue, 37-30. This was in a game which did not have the start of quarterback Noah Vedral.

The Nittany Lions won their first game against Michigan. However, they face a much tougher task against a team who, unlike the soulless Wolverines and is motivated and has heart.

The all-time series was 28-2 for Penn State, which has won 13 consecutive games against Rutgers. Greg Schiano, the head coach, downplayed any talk of rivalry because it was a one-sided story.

Schiano said Tuesday that “I don’t believe you can make an opponent.” “If we played well enough here against Penn State for several years it would be a natural rival – bordering states, all that. Rutgers is not yet a threat to Penn State. We can do it.

Quarterback Sean Clifford was back in the starting XI last Wednesday and returned with his best game of the season. He completed 61%, for 236 yards victory.

Clifford particularly remembers that it was the first time he didn’t turn the ball in the season. Keeping that streak going against Rutgers will be critical. Rutgers has lost eleven games this season, good for fifth in the conference.

After Devyn Ford missed the Michigan game because of a family member’s death, the Nittany Lions will be casting their spell on him this week. However, the unfortunate circumstances could have cost him a spot due to the arrival of Keyvone Lee.

Lee was ranked as one of the Big Ten’s worst rush offenses. He led the Nittany Lions who carried the ball 22x for 134 yards and a touchdown.

The seven Rutgers linebackers will be a tough opponent. Olakunle Fatukasi is the linebacker, leading the conference in tackles. Mohamed Toure is the do-it all playmaker (three sacks), nine tackles for loss, and two forced turnovers).

The line moved from a 9-point underdog to +11 since the beginning of the week. This makes me believe Vedral’s current status is questionable after he missed the Purdue game due to an unspecified injury. Schiano didn’t provide an update or a timeline, but said that Vedral will return to the middle of the match when he’s fully healthy.

Vedral accompanied the team to West Lafayette (Ind.) and participated in warm-up exercises. However, the television broadcast showed that Vedral grimaced while he threw a ball. The Scarlet Knights replaced him with Art Sitkowski, a former four-star recruit. Art Sitkowski is a mix of Johnny Langan and twofold threat Johnny Langan, who runs packages.

As Penn State’s strength has stalled this season’s run, our pick would be better served if Vedral was below the center. This category is where the Nittany Lions limit their opponents to less than four yards per carry.

However, the Penn State Run defense has been leaky lately. Michigan is able to average over six yards per attempt, while Michigan surrenders six quick touchdowns in its last two games.

The Scarlet Knights’ defense is the weakest in conference. They allow 35 points per match, but they are second behind the line. Rutgers is also ranked fifth in Big Ten forced sales. This could be an indicator of bad weather.

Tips and analysis for betting

With 54.5 points, I currently control the entire set. Penn State and Rutgers are both in the bottom third of conference defense. However, weather will play a role with gusts of 16 to 27 mph, and almost 90 percent chance for rain by kickoff.

Our PRO predictions have Rutgers at +1.5. This is a slightly higher number than +0.3 when Clifford’s revenue-hungry defense against the Scarlet Knights may force him to make poor decisions in poor circumstances, as he did during most of the season.

Selection: Rutgers +11.5.
