Bet on Maryland +13.0 Because…
The Terrapins just finished getting smacked around 62-3 last week by the Ohio State Buckeyes which was the exact same result the Cornhuskers had just one week earlier. At this time of the year in these College Football circumstances, these 2 teams are closer than a 14-point difference head-to-head.
“There’s a lot to play for our guys in this season,” first year Maryland head coach DJ Durkin said. “We’ve had some really good moments in this season. There have been some great things that have gone on. … We just have to focus back in on what we’ve done to be successful and how we’ve done it. I think our guys will do that.”
Maryland just had Michigan and Ohio State in consecutive games which is about as bad as it can get, so it can only get better. The Terrapins are also getting the Huskers after they know they have blown their chances at a National Championship, and believe me when I say these spoiled brats let the fire in their soul dim because of what they don’t have anymore.
Bet on Nebraska -13.0 Because…
The Cornhuskers have done better than actually thought this year, and after 2 exhausting weeks getting beat by the Wisconsin Badgers and destroyed by the Ohio State Buckeyes they squeaked by Minnesota last week. This is a team that will close out the end of the season with a fury as the college football betting point spread shows this week.
Nebraska is uncharacteristically better on defense this year than on offense, and that is NOT good news for Maryland. Since the Terrapins sorry rushing offense is 113th and their overall offense is 96th, I don’t think there is any chance of Maryland being in this game by halftime.
“We are playing a Maryland team that runs a spread offense, a lot of zone read stuff. They’re the third-ranked running team in the conference,” second year Cornhusker coach Mike Riley said, adding the defense is particularly wary of wide receivers Levern Jacobs and DJ Moore.
Maryland Vs Nebraska ATS Pick
FIRE on the first half line giving up the points and taking the Nebraska Cornhuskers for your college football betting! This game will be over by halftime, because I don’t see how Maryland is going to score unless the Huskers turn into babies because they can’t challenge anybody for national supremacy.
Nebraska will probably score 1 or 2 touchdowns just with the defense this week, because the Maryland Terrapins are not even vaguely strong in the places they could possibly penetrate this Cornhusker defense.
