Free College Football Picks - Maryland's Upward Trend Continues At Penn State

Maryland Terrapins Get Ready To Take The Field

With Maryland on the up and up, expert capper Ian Cameron advises you that they are not yet reached their peak. This Saturday the Terrapins face Penn State and they carry a lot of betting value.

Maryland Terrapins vs  Penn State Nittany Lions

The Maryland Terrapins are the program trending upward and the Penn State Nittany Lions are the program trending downward and we are left with a reasonable and cheap price to back the team on the rise here in a price range where a win should cash us a ticket on Maryland. Maryland is 4-0 SU this season and is coming off a dominating 50-7 win. Maryland has found their footing offensively with a much improved and more comfortable Perry Hills at QB and a terrific ground attack led by RB Ty Johnson and Lorenzo Harrison who have combined for a staggering 6.5 yards per carry average and now go up against a banged up and injury-riddled Penn State defense that is dealing with cluster injuries especially at LB which have really hurt this defense which has allowed an alarming 4.9 yards per rush and over 200 rushing yards per game and the ability for Maryland to stay balanced offensively should help them. 

On the flip side, Penn State’s offense has been erratic with their new look uptempo scheme not putting together a consistent 60 minute performance to this point. Maryland’s defense has improved and responded positively to the coaching of DJ Durkin and the new schemes on that side of the football. Penn State escaped with a 31-30 win last year against a much worse Maryland team at the end of the dismal Randy Edsall but were outgained in total yards 466-363 and benefited from a +2 turnover margin. Penn State was fortunate to win that game and I think the luck runs out here in this game. Maryland is on the rise, Penn State is on the decline and I’ll make Maryland my College Football Play Of The Week.
