BEST BET Penn St over NORTH­WEST­ERN by 3

Playbook Football (Midweek Alert) - - 2-minute Handicap -

Not only do the Nit­tany Lions find them­selves in the wrong para­graph in this week’s SMART BOX, they’re also not a fan ‘fa­vorite’ of this week’s MID­WEEK ALERT as their yards (370) did not match their point pro­duc­tion (see the RES cat­e­gory – a for­mu­lated Re-Score of the game based strictly on ac­tual yardage gained and al­lowed) for the fourth time this sea­son in their 31-point win over In­di­ana last Satur­day. They did con­vert two early turnovers into TDs but that might not be the case this week as the Lions are 0-6 ATS away with con­fer­ence re­venge. In fact, the Wild­cats have up­set the Lions in each of the past two meet­ings, so they will not be in­ti­mated by these ‘5-0 Fat Cats.’ How could they be with the Square and Alert join­ing forces and com­ing to their aid – not to men­tion our data­base which notes North­west­ern’s 4-1 ATS Game Five log and 7-3 ATS mark after meet­ing Wisky, as well as Penn State’s 3-10 ATS record as fa­vorites be­fore danc­ing with the Wolver­ines. Even our NCAA Coaches League wants a piece of the ac­tion, not­ing Wild­cats’ HC Pat Fitzger­ald is 14-4 ATS as a dog of more than 7 points off a loss while sav­ing the best for last in the form of THE CLINCHER: PSU is 3-10-2 ATS away un­der James Franklin, in­clud­ing 1-7 SU and 0-7-1 AT against foes that al­low less than 26 PPG.
