As you are betting college football on Saturday you will notice a key game in the ACC as Maryland hosts Florida State in a matchup that can be seen on ABC television. You might not have even been aware of Maryland but they are in control of their own destiny and can win the ACC Atlantic Division with wins against Florida State and NC State. The Terrapins are home underdogs though in college football betting online as they host the Seminoles.
Florida State -4.5 at Sbg global
The Seminoles are laying points in this contest on the road. Florida State still has the marquee name and Maryland is not getting much respect. The Terrapins are a good team though and very capable of winning this game outright.
One reason the Seminoles are getting respect is quarterback Christian Ponder who is expected to return for this game. The Seminoles are a much better team with Ponder under center as he is one of the top quarterbacks in the country. Florida State won last week against Clemson but it sure wasn’t because of their offense. Without Ponder the Seminoles really struggle to move the ball so his return is critical for Florida State’s chances in this game.
Maryland can win the ACC Atlantic Division if they win this week against Florida State and next week against NC State. The Seminoles win the division if they win and if NC State loses either at North Carolina or at Maryland. The Coastal Division is almost assuredly going to be won by Virginia Tech as they need either a win against Miami or a win against Virginia to clinch the division.
