The Maryland Terrapins need a victory here after losing three of their last four games. The Maryland Terrapins have won five of their last eight home games. Josh Jackson is completing 51.1 percent of his passes for 968 yards, 10 touchdowns and four interceptions. Jackson has 15 touchdown passes dating back to last season. Dontay Demus Jr. and Darryl Jones have combined for 522 receiving yards and three touchdowns while Chigoziem Okonkwo has 11 receptions. The Maryland Terrapins ground game is averaging 212.8 yards per contest, and Javon Leake leads the way with 341 yards and five touchdowns. Defensively, Maryland is allowing 24.3 points and 395.8 yards per game. Ayinde Eley leads the Maryland Terrapins with 46 tackles, Keandre Jones has 5.5 sacks and Jordan Mosley has one interception.

The Hoosiers are 4-10 ATS in their last 14 games following a ATS win, 3-9 ATS in their last 12 road games and 4-1 ATS in their last 5 games overall. The Terrapins are 6-2 ATS in their last 8 home games, 2-5 ATS in their last 7 conference games and 2-6 ATS vs. a team with a winning record. The over is 4-0 in the last 4 meetings. The over is 8-3 in Terrapins last 11 games in October. The under is 6-2 in Hoosiers last 8 games overall.

The Maryland Terrapins have not been able to build on their success after the win over Syracuse, and now they're dealing with another quarterback injury to Josh Jackson. The Indiana Hoosiers aren't the team I'm running to the window to bet on as a favorite on the road, but they're the far and away more consistent team and have health on their side. Maryland is fragile and not a team I'm backing without a reliable option at QB. Give me the Hoosiers by a touchdown.
