From his work, you will quickly realize that he loves looking at games from an analytical and numbers perspective and hopes to provide you with that same perspective in his articles.

Jason Radowitz is 5-1 in his College GameDay Game of the Week Best Bets. 

LSU won by 14 last week. We had -13.5. WINNER!! So yeah, we’re 5-1 since I started this College GameDay Best Bets routine. It’s been a fun ride. This week 16 Michigan is traveling to 7 Penn State for the GameDay Game.  

Michigan Wolverines Preview

Michigan was a 24 point favorite against Illinois. They won the game 42-25 in a game they should’ve won a little easier than that. The game was close in the second half of the game until Michigan escaped. The downfall of Michigan seems to be getting closer. This is a HUGE game for Michigan for plenty of reasons.

Shea Patterson has been far from excellent this season. He’s thrown for 1246 yards in six games. Michigan will look to establish the run against a Penn State team that will watch their fans white out the field under the bright lights.

We talk about Jim Harbaugh and how he can’t beat Ohio State. But one thing he doesn’t struggle to do? Beat Penn State. He’s won 3 of 4 against Penn State and Penn State’s James Franklin is 1-4 against Michigan.

Penn State Nittany Lions Preview

Penn State held off Iowa last week winning 17-12. Their defense has been ridiculously good. They’ve allowed no more than 13 points a game. Penn State’s offense struggled against Iowa’s defense. Iowa and Michigan are pretty similar in defenses.

Penn State’s defense is going to have to force Patterson to throw the ball. Michigan wouldn’t mind either if the game becomes a “which quarterback does better game.” Penn State’s Clifford threw for just 117 yards against Iowa completing just 50 passes. This was his worst performance of probably his career in terms of passing yards. He had five straight games of 200 yards passing before that.

Pick

It’s a nine point spread. Michigan is expected to lose by two scores. I’m not sure I agree with that. Iowa is very similar to both of these teams.

Michigan beat Iowa 10-3 (One score game.) Penn State beat Iowa 17-12 (one score game.)

This one will be a one score game too. And probably low scoring.
