Spartans Try To Get Back on Track Against Maryland

Maryland Terrapins vs. Michigan State Spartans Betting Information, Odds and Picks

At the beginning of the season, Maryland ripped off four consecutive wins.  Gamblers took notice.  All of a sudden, coach Mike Locksley was being mentioned as a potential coach of the year.  But veteran gamblers have seen this College football betting movie before.  And when Iowa came to visit Maryland on a Friday night, it was no surprise that the Hawkeyes scored a 51-14 payout.  Subsequently, Maryland lost four of its next five games.  Thus, gamblers show no demand for the Terrapins.  Meanwhile, Michigan State ran out of gas at Purdue last week, suffering their first loss.

Maryland Terrapins at Michigan State Spartans CashBet Odds Analysis

Following their 4-0 start, Maryland abused the online sportsbook trust of gamblers.  And it’s doubtful that the Terrapins will win anyone back the rest of the season.  Counter to that is a Michigan State team that has won over the masses.  Most important of all, the Spartans have shown good value and consistency.

Maryland Fails to Clinch Bowl

Last week Maryland lost to Penn State 31-14 as 10-point home dogs.  The game went under the Betting on college football total of 56.5.  As a result, Maryland is 5-4 straight up, 3-6 against the spread, and 4-5 over/under.  Maryland ranks 45th for total offense and 73rd for scoring offense.  Defensively, the Terrapins rank 85th overall and 97th for points allowed.

Of great concern was that Maryland could have earned a signature win and a bowl berth.  Instead, they got neither by fading late.

Spartans Will Fight to Redeem Themselves

Last week, Michigan State lost at Purdue 40-29 as 2.5-point favorites.  The Spartans and Boilermakers game went over the bet on NCAAF total of 53.5.  Michigan State has a record of 8-1 straight up, 6-1-2 against the spread, and 5-4 over/under.

Aidan O’Connell matched his career-high by throwing three touchdown passes.  Including one on a reverse, flea-flicker screen pass to Jackson Anthrop.  And then Purdue toppled a Big Ten giant for the second time this season.

Michigan State stumbled despite another strong showing by Kenneth Walker III.  To show, Walker had 23 carries for 146 yards and one score. And the Spartans had plenty of problems defending O’Connell, trickery aside.
