The Maryland Terrapins and Rutgers Scarlet Knights face off on Saturday in a college football showdown at SHI Stadium. When these two teams faced off in 2020 it was Rutgers that came away with the 27-24. 

The Maryland Terrapins need a win in this game to become bowl eligible. Maryland comes into this game with a 5-6 record overall and they have gone 3-8 against the spread. Maryland has lost three games in a row and in the last game against the Michigan Wolverines they lost 59-18. Maryland is averaging 26.1 points while their defense is giving up 33.9 points per game. Under center for Maryland is Taulia Tagovailoa is under center for Maryland and he has thrown for 3,283 yards, 21 touchdowns, and 11 interceptions. 

On the other side of this matchup is the Rutgers Scarlet Knights who sit with a 5-6 record overall and they have gone 6-5 against the spread. The biggest issue for Rutgers has been their inconsistency and in the last game against Penn State they lost 28-0. Two games ago Rutgers beat Indiana 38-3 and the big question is what team will be showing up in this game. Rutgers is averaging 20.9 points while their defense is giving up 23.2 points per game. Under center for Rutgers is Noah Verdel who has thrown for 1,681 yards, seven touchdowns, and five interceptions.

Maryland is 0-7 against the spread in their last seven games overall,. Maryland is 0-6 against the spread in their last six games following a straight up loss of more than 20 points. The under is 5-0 in Rutgers last five games following an against-the-spread loss. The under is 4-0 in Rutgers last four games following a straight up win. 

The winner of this game will get a bowl berth which puts a lot on the line for each of the teams. I really don’t trust either of these quarterbacks, but I do trust Tagovailoa a little more. This is going to be a lower-scoring game and Maryland will cover the spread.  I also like the under to cash with ease.
