2010 College Football Picks: Penn State Nittany Lions

by Thomas Jensen on Saturday, September 4th, 2010

2010 College Football Picks Penn State Nittany: After another successful year in Happy Valley, head coach Joe Paterno will have a roster full of talent returning at the skill positions to make another run in the Big Ten. The 2010 College Football Picks Experts at internet sportsbook SBGGLOBAL.com have the Penn State Nittany Lions listed at +2100 odds to win the 2011 BCS National Championship Title Game.

The one exception to making the run in the Big Ten is the hole left by the departure of starting quarterback Daryll Clark. Breaking in a new quarterback should be less of a task with the depth chart the Nittany Lions possess going into this season. The 2010 College Football Picks Experts at internet sportsbook SBGGLOBAL.com have the Penn State Nittany Lions listed as the favorite at +600 odds to win the Big Ten.

Penn State scored 45 offensive touchdowns last season. Of those touchdowns, Darrly Clark was responsible for 31 of them, which was 67% of the offensive production. He threw for 24 touchdowns and ran for an additional seven scores. The 2010 College Football Picks Experts at internet sportsbook SBGGLOBAL.com have the Penn State Nittany Lions -110 odds to win OVER 8.5 games during this season.

The 2010 Nittany Lions could be a potential sleeper team in the Big Ten. While it's hard to imagine them sneaking up on anyone, the fact is that they lost a ton of offensive production with the loss of their leader Clark. If the offensive line can stay sturdy, there is no reason to believe that Evan Royster won't have another monster year. The loss of the linebackers and Jared Odrick hurts, but it is still Penn State and the cupboard is not bare on the defensive side oof the ball. D'Anton Lynn anchors a defense that returns seven starters from an 11 win team. With a good recruiting class on its way in to town (ranked 11th by ESPN and 12th by rivals) the Nittany Lions are poised to stay among the top tier of the Big Ten. It is very conceivable that another 10 or 11 win season is possible. Look for them in a bowl game this winter although a BCS game is probably a bit too ambitious.
