The Maryland Terrapins and Michigan State Spartans face off on Saturday in a Big Ten showdown at Spartan Stadium. When these two teams faced off in 2019, Michigan State came away with the 19-16 victory.
The Maryland Terrapins come into this game with a 5-4 record overall but they are coming off another loss in their last game. Maryland could only manage 14 points against Penn State, and that wasn’t enough. Maryland is averaging 27.6 points while their defense is giving up 30.4 points per game. Under center for Maryland is Taulia Tagovailoa and he has thrown for 2,755 yards, 18 touchdowns, and nine interceptions. In this game, if Maryland wants to come away with a victory, the offense is going to need to be better.
On the other side of this matchup is the Michigan State Spartans who sit with an 8-1 record but the one loss came in their last game against Purdue. The defense struggled giving up 40 points and that led to the 11 point defeat. There was some concern that it was going to be a let down spot and it happened. Michigan State is averaging 34 points while the defense is giving up 22.7 points per game. Under center for Michigan State is Payton Thorne and he has thrown for 2,173 yards, 17 touchdowns, and seven interceptions. Kenneth Walker might be the top running back in the country and he has put up 1,330 yards and 15 touchdowns.
Maryland is 7-19 against the spread in their last 26 conference games. Michigan State is 6-1-2 against the spread in their last nine games overall. The under is 6-1 in Maryland’s last seven road games. The over is 8-2 in Michigan State’s last games on grass. The under is 6-0 in the last six meetings.
Michigan State lost against Purdue but this is a good bounce-back spot for them. Maryland is going to struggle to score, and they have no one to slow down Walker. Look for Michigan State to score at least 35 points, and that will be enough for a cover of the spread.
