Maryland vs Penn State Prediction & College Football Odds for Week 10

by Ryan BurksNovember 5, 2021
  • Maryland gives Penn State a real battle on Saturday afternoon
  • Nittany Lions are able to snap a rough three-game losing streak
  • Defenses dominate to keep the total amount of points to under 50.

The Penn State Nittany Lions head to Maryland on Saturday needing a win in the worst way. Maryland comes into this game with some momentum and that should set up for a terrific matchup.

Penn State has now lost three straight games and they have completely fallen out of the title race in the Big Ten Conference. The Nittany Lions are hoping to get things turned around by picking up a road win.

Maryland had lost three straight games before picking up an impressive win over Indiana a week ago. The Terrapins can make a serious statement by beating Penn State and moving to 5-3 on the season.

Betting Odds & Lines for This Game

Maryland vs Penn State Prediction: Spread

A month ago, Penn State looked like one of the best teams in college football. Things have changed in a hurry, and now the Nittany Lions are struggling just to win a football game.

Crazy things happen on the road in the Big Ten Conference, and Maryland is coming into this game with some momentum. Penn State is still the more talented team, but it’s hard to see them beating anyone by at least 10 points.

Taking the points is the right play in this game.

  • Free Prediction: Maryland Terrapins +10.0

Maryland vs Penn State Prediction: MoneyLine

Penn State should be good enough to snap its three-game losing streak in this game, but that doesn’t mean that it will come easy. Maryland is a team that gives up more than 30 points per game, but they can also score well.

When looking to make a moneyline bet in this game then the best play is to look at the Maryland Terrapins at +320. There is plenty of value with that bet, and this conference has produced some pretty surprising upsets so far this season.

Even though Penn State is likely going to win, taking a flyer on Maryland at +320 is a smart play here.

Maryland vs Penn State Prediction: Total

Penn State is one of the better defensive teams in the Big Ten Conference, and that unit has still played well during this losing streak. Maryland does not have a good defense, but they are facing a Penn State offense that has been struggling to score.

The weather is starting to turn a bit colder, and that usually affects the betting total as well. Penn State is going to try to win this game with its defense and this will be a game won by the field position battle.

Penn State should be able to win this game by scoring just 28 points, and that will keep the betting total to under 56 total points.

  • Free Prediction: Under 55.5
