Penn State 2023: Over/Under 9.5 Wins?

It’s that time of the year when oddsmakers release their win total projections for each team.

The win totals mainly represent two things: how the oddsmakers expect a team to do that season ,

and how they compare to the other teams across the conference and country.

For the most part, the win total projections are fairly accurate. It’s rare that oddsmakers are way off with their numbers.

So with that in mind, Penn State sits at 9.5 projected wins coming off their 11-2 and Rose Bowl championship season.

Considering where the program is right now, how much talent is inside the building and the momentum of a successful last season,

 it would be extremely disappointing to not finish with double-digit wins and go over this number.

Last year oddsmakers set the number at 8.5 wins. Penn State smashed that number and went way over.

 In 2021, the number was 7.5 and the Nittany Lions finished with seven wins.

The 2020 year is ignored due to COVID, but they also went over the number in 2019, winning 11 games when the preseason number was 7.5.

To go over the number in back to back years, let’s take a look at the schedule and see how Penn State can get into double digit wins.
