Maryland got off to an unexpected 4-2 start this season, beating teams like Temple and conference rivals Wake Forest and Virginia, but things have gone south for the team in recent weeks.
The Terrapins enter today’s game with a 4-5 record after losing three straight to North Carolina State, Boston College, and Georgia Tech. Injuries have played a huge role in the team’s demise as they have played four different quarterbacks out of necessity.
A fourth consecutive setback seems a foregone conclusion with Clemson on tap; the only question is how bad the Terrapins will take it on the chin.
The Tigers are one of the least talked about one loss teams around, and much of that has to do with the watered down conference they play in; however, this team should not be dismissed.
Clemson, for the most part, has done what good teams are supposed to do to inferior competition, which is pound it into the turf. The Tigers are outscoring their opposition 36.7 to 23.7, and those numbers include a 49-37 loss at Florida State. Clemson is averaging 45.6 points per game over its last five games (all wins); it won those contests by an average of 23.4 points per game.
These teams have split the last 10 meetings between them, but Clemson has won and covered in the last two skirmishes. Maryland had covered in four consecutive games as a road dog at Clemson until losing 31-7 (14.5 point dog) at Memorial Stadium in October of 2010.
Free Pick: Take Maryland +31. The Terrapins offense is horrible, but their defense usually keeps them hanging around. Clemson should win by double digits, but Maryland will slip inside the number.
Maryland at Clemson College Football Odds:
Maryland Terrapins +31 (-110), Over 55.5 (-110)
