Things got a bit dicey for Maryland last week as they almost lost to Delaware at home, in the end surviving 14-7. This has to be a concern for the Terps as Delaware is in a rebuilding year, and Maryland could do nothing against them. They have serious QB issues as neither Steffy nor Portis looked capable of leading the team, forcing Maryland to run almost exclusively a ground attack. But, it led to only 14 points. It has been noted over the years that when D-1 teams play poorly against lower division teams they are poor bets the next time out. MTSU had their chances last week vs. Troy, creating multiple turnovers but failing to cash in for points. They had first and goal inside the 5 twice, failing to score a single point. In the end, this is lots of wood for a Maryland offense that could muster just 14 at home vs. a lower division team and now must play on the road vs. an opponent that will be eager to face a BCS conference foe. I think this is an overlay, and will grab the points here.
