The NCAA football betting underdogs Maryland Terrapins allowed 59 points last week, and will face an Ohio State Buckeyes team that scored 62 in their previous outing. Here are the online sportsbook odds for the game on Saturday, November 12th at Maryland Stadium in College Park:
Ohio State -28½ (-110) 57½ (-110) -7000
Maryland +28½ (-110) 57½ (-110) +3000
The Buckeyes (8-1) scored their most points ever against a top 10 team and gave the Nebraska Cornhuskers their most disproportionate loss since 2004. QB J.T. Barrett finished 26 of 38 for 290 yards with four TD passes, two of which went to running back Curtis Samuel, who had 137 yards on eight catches. Damon Webb and Malik Hooker each returned an interception for a score.
The Terrapins (5-4) couldn’t find a way to effectively attack or defend against the Michigan Wolverines. Maryland missed field goals, drove to the Michigan 1 just to lose 10 yards on two plays and a penalty in the second quarter, was one yard short of a score at the end of the first half, and failed to convert a trio of fourth downs. Starting QB Perry Hills was hit hard on and had to leave the game. It has not been determined whether he will be able to start against the Buckeyes. Caleb Rowe – who went 12 of 23 with three interceptions – could get the nod from head coach Durkin.
Ohio State has won 11 of their last 12 games on the road. Barrett has completed 64.5% of his passes for 1965 yards with 21 touchdowns and four picks. Samuel and Noah Brown have a total of 999 receiving yards and 12 touchdowns. Dontre Wilson has 23 catches. The Buckeyes rushing attack is averaging 268.5 yards per game. Mike Weber has run for 842 yards and seven TDs. Ohio State is yielding 13.8 points and 284.3 yards per game. Raekwon McMillan has 54 tackles, Tyquan Lewis has five sacks, and Malik Hooker has five picks. NCAA football betting-wise, OSU is 41-18-1 against the spread in their last 60 games on the road, and 1-4 against the spread in their last five games overall. Ohio State had been struggled on offense as of late, but their routing of Nebraska might have announced a return to their touchdown-happy ways.
Maryland has not defeated a nationally-ranked team since 2010. Hills has completed 67.4% of his passes for 1143 yards, 10 touchdowns and three interceptions. D.J. Moore and Teldrick Morgan have 808 combined receiving yards and eight touchdowns. Levern Jacobs has 30 catches. The Terrapins are averaging 232.6 rushing yards per game. Ty Johnson has run for 635 yards and four touchdowns. Maryland is giving up 27.2 points and 430.2 yards per game. Shane Cockerille has 79 tackles, Jesse Aniebonam has 5½ sacks, and Alvin Hill has two interceptions. UMD is, in NCAA football betting terms, 13-6 against the spread in their last 19 games after an SU loss, and 1-4 against the spread in their last five games overall.
