The Rutgers Scarlet Knights and Maryland Terrapins face off on Saturday in a college football showdown at Byrd Stadium. When these two teams faced off in 2021 it was Maryland that secured the 40-16 victory. 

Rutgers comes into this game with a 4-7 record and they have gone 5-5-1 against the spread. Rutgers offense has been a problem heading into this game and in the last game against Penn State they were defeated 55-10. Quarterback Gavin Wimsatt completed 10 of his 29 passes for 122 yards, one touchdown, and one interception. Rutgers is averaging 19 points while their defense is giving up 28.5 points per game. The offense is ranked 119th in college football. One issue for this team is they haven’t found consistent quarterback play. In this game whoever starts under center is going to need to find a way to get the offense going. If the offense struggles it's going to be a long games. 

On the other side of this matchup is Maryland who sits with a 6-5 record and they have gone 5-6 against the spread. In the last game against Ohio State, Maryland was competitive, but they ended up losing 43-30. Taulia Tagovailoa had a big game completing 18 of his 30 passes for 241 yards and a touchdown. Maryland is averaging 28.5 points while their defense is giving up 26.3 points per game. There are eight different receivers that have finished with at least 180 receiving yards. 

Rutgers is 11-4-1 against the spread in their last 16 road games. Maryland is 3-7 against the spread in their last 10 home games. Rutgers is 2-5 against the spread in their last seven games against Marlyand. The under is 4-1 in the last five meetings in Maryland. 

This Maryland team can score, but this Rutgers offense is bad and without a good quarterback that isn’t going to change here. Look for Maryland to get over their season average of 28.5 and I think they get over the point mark. Rutgers isn’t going to keep up, and the Terrapins will cover the spread. This is one of the most plays on the entire board. 

The pick in this article is the opinion of the writer, not a PickDawgz site consensus.
