Rutgers has lost five straight coming into today to fall to 13-16 on the season and 2-14 in the Big Ten. The Scarlet Knights have covered in their last two games to move to 11-11-1 against the spread on the season. Rutgers is averaging 65.3 points per game on offense while allowing 67.1 on defense. At home, the Knights put up 69.5 on offense while allowing just 64.5 on defense. Corey Sanders is averaging 13.1 points per game to lead the team while Nigel Johnson and Deshawn Freeman also score in double figures.

Bet on Maryland vs. Rutgers

Maryland has been struggling but giving up just 5 points at Rutgers seems too little. The Knights are only 3-5-1 against the spread on the season and face a Maryland team that has gone 9-2-1 against the spread on the road. Maryland did have a slip up at Penn State a while back, but still has consistently won on the road against poor teams. I expect the same today.
