Maryland on a slide
Maryland is on a three-game losing streak following a 52-10 loss at Minnesota last weekend. The Terrapins are now 3-5 on the season, 1-4 in the Big Ten, 4-4 against the spread and 5-3 with the over.
The Terps are putting up 32.4 points and 403.4 yards per game on offense this season while allowing 29 points and 424.9 yards per game on defense. Tyrrell Pigrome has been the starting QB this year, but has dealt with a lot of injuries and is questionable to play today due to a leg injury. Josh Jackson has filled in for him and thrown for 968 yards and 10 touchdowns. Pigrome has 642 passing yards and three scores. Javon Leake is the team’s leading rusher with 543 yards and seven touchdowns. Dontay Demus Jr. is the leading receiver with 31 catches for 487 yards and four touchdowns.
Michigan dominates ND
Michigan picked up a rare win over a top-10 opponent last weekend when the Wolverines ran over Notre Dame, 45-14. Michigan is now 6-2 on the season, 3-2 in the Big Ten, 4-4 against the spread and 6-2 with the over.
The Wolverines have one of the top defenses in the nation, allowing just 18.4 points and 271.9 yards per game this year. Jordan Glasgow is leading the defense with 55 tackles and four sacks. Offensively, Michigan is putting up 31 points and 397.8 yards per game. The Wolverines are led by Shea Patterson, who has thrown for 1,622 yards and 11 touchdowns. He also has five rushing touchdowns. Zach Charbonnet is leading the ground attack with 531 yards and nine touchdowns while Ronnie Bell has 25 receptions for 441 yards.
College Football Betting Trends
Maryland is 4-1 against the spread in their last five home games, but 7-17 ATS in their last 24 against a winning team.
The Wolverines are 5-2 against the spread in their last seven following a cover, but just 2-8 ATS in their last 10 road games.
Michigan has won and covered the spread in four straight against Maryland, winning all four games by at least 21 points. The Wolverines seem to have found their spark on offense over their last six quarters and that should carry over on the road against a bad Maryland team. The Wolverines already beat up on bad teams as is, but should be out to make a statement now that they know they can beat a good team. The Michigan defense shouldn’t have any trouble with a struggling Maryland offense either. I expect the Wolverines to dominate.
