College Football Lines: Maryland vs. West Virginia

College Football OddsSaturday, September 17

Maryland over West Virginia by 6

The meeting between the West Virginia Mountaineers and the Maryland Terrapins si this Saturday at Byrd Stadium.

The current pay per head betting line is Terrapins listed as 1-point favorites against the Mountaineers, and the total is sitting at 53½.

Danny O’Brien and the Maryland offense looked good – though their uniforms did not – in their season-opening win over Miami. In fact, according to BSN Sports, “you couldn’t even ‘pay’ Miami players to wear those outfi ts.”

What does look good (and SMART) is the Terp’s 12-day respite. They’ll certainly need it as the Mountaineers are 10-2 ATS away before back-to-back homers, not to mention a perfect 4-0 SU and ATS in this series since 2005.

First-year head coach Randy Edsall will also be battling a nasty 0-6 ATS Game Two log as well as a 0-4ATS mark in the second game of three straight home contests. Yes, the trends all point to West Virginia but the handicappers warns otherwise and we’ll heed that advice.

One more word of caution: watch this line. Should the Hillbillies turn to chalk, they own a 0-9 ATS log as Game Three favorites of less than 10 points.

Whatever the case (pick, plus or minus), it’s venom over denim this afternoon in College Park as the Terps exact some revenge.
