Why Bet The Maryland Terrapins To Beat The Buckeyes
Maryland will break opposing defenses’ wills by rushing the ball right down their throats. In week one, Texas was victimized when the Terrapins rushed for 238 yards in a 51-41 road win. Minnesota was their latest victim. The Golden Gophers gave up 262 rushing yards in a 31-24 Maryland win.
The Terrapins have rushed for 934 yards heading into week 6 because of their committed to run the football every weekend. Ten different players have run the football, but none as successful as Junior RB Ty Johnson. Last week, he posted 130 yards and a touchdown on 18 carries against Minnesota. He’s averaging 8.9 yards per carry this season. Johnson isn’t a one-hit wonder. In 2016 he averaged 9.1 yards per carry.
Why Bet The Ohio State Buckeyes To Beat The Terrapins
Ohio State is getting tired of hearing how Penn State is the team to beat in the Big Ten. Beating the Terrapins and doing so by more than just covering the 31-point Week 6 college football betting spread.
The Buckeyes have outscored Army, UNLV and Rutgers 148 to 28 in their last three games since losing to Oklahoma in Columbus. Senior QB JT Barrett has been outstanding in those wins. He completed 70.5% of his passes while throwing ten touchdowns and zero picks. He is hungry to take Penn State down a notch now, but that will have to wait two weeks.
If You Still Can’t Decide Who To Bet On
- Buckeyes are 40-19-2 ATS in their last 61 games after allowing less than 275 total yards in their previous game.
- The Buckeyes are 1-6 ATS in its last seven games at home.
- Terrapins are 4-1 ATS in their last 5 games as a road underdog of 0.5-3.0.
Maryland Vs. Ohio State Week 6 Betting Analysis
Maryland will have its hands full trying to slow down Ohio State, which is No. 5 in the country in total offense (564.8 yards per game) and 11th in scoring (42.6 points per game). Making it worse, the Terrapins could find moving the football a difficult task as well. The Buckeyes are No. 16 in the nation in scoring defense (16 points per game).
The 31-point betting spread sounds insurmountable, but not for a red-hot Buckeyes team.
