Preview

The Maryland Terrapins continue on the road and will visit the #14 Penn State Nittany Lions at the Beaver Stadium on Saturday afternoon. These teams faced each other last season and the Nittany Lions took the win 31-14 on the road and covered the spread as -10 pts favorites.

 

Penn State Nittany Lions

The Nittany Lions get here with a 7-2 record and are 4-1 at home so far this season ranking 3rd in the Big 10 Confefrence. In their last game, they beat the Indiana Hoosiers 45-14 on the road. Allen ran for 86 yards and a season-high three scores, Singleton added 73 yards rushing and another touchdown. Penn State's victory isn't likely to make waves in this week's rankings, but if the Nittany Lions close the season with three wins against unranked teams they could make it back into the top 10.

Sean Clifford has 2045 passing yards in 162 of 257 completions with 16 touchdowns and 7 interceptions. Nicholas Singleton leads in rushing yards with 679 yards in 112 carries and 8 touchdowns while P. Washington has 597 receiving yards in 45 receptions and 2 touchdown.   

 

Maryland Terrapins

The Terrapins are 6-3 overall and are 2-2 on the road so far this season ranking 4th in the Big 10 Conference. In their last game on the road, they lost 23-10 against Wisconsin. The Terps squandered an opportunity to earn their fourth conference win, which would have matched their highest total since joining the Big Ten in 2014.

Taulia Tagovailoa has 2078 passing yards in 181 of 259 completions with 14 touchdowns and 6 interceptions. Roman Hemby leads in rushing yards with 747 yards in 121 carries and 7 touchdowns while Rakim Jarret has 376 receiving yards in 34 receptions and 3 touchdowns. 

 

BETTING TRENDS

Maryland are 8-3 SU in their last 11 games.

Maryland are 1-5 ATS in their last 6 games against Penn State.

Maryland are 1-6 SU in their last 7 games against Penn State.

Maryland are 3-7 ATS in their last 10 games on the road.

Penn State are 6-3 ATS in their last 9 games.

The total has gone OVER in 4 of Penn State's last 5 games.

Penn State are 7-2 SU in their last 9 games.

The total has gone UNDER in 5 of Penn State's last 6 games against Maryland.

 

Prediction

The Nittany Lions have been great offensively this season and have scored over 30 points in 7 of their first 9 games while allowing 21.1 points per game. The Terrapins have been pretty good as well but they struggled in their last game against Wisconsin tough defense. I expect Taulia Tagovailoa to be better on this game and help the offense to explode and keep this game close enough to cover the spread. Maryland has lost by more than 10 points only once so far. 

PICK: Maryland +10.5 (-110)
