Michigan vs Maryland 2019 College Football Week 10 Spread & Prediction

Why Bet On Michigan?

There are a handful of good reasons to back Michigan in this contest. First, the Wolverines are coming off an emphatic 45-1 blowout over a nationally-ranked Notre Dame squad in what was undoubtedly their best performance of the season. Then, there’s the fact that Michigan has won four straight in this rivalry including a 42-21win at home last season as a 17.5-point favorite. Another great reason to back Michigan is the fact that the Wolverines are ranked an impressive 16th in points allowed (18.4 ppg) while also ranking a stellar sixth against the pass.

Why Bet On Maryland?

Despite the fact that Maryland has lost three straight and four of their last five, ther are a couple of good reasons to back the Terps in this Big Ten battle. Maryland has covered the chalk in three of their four home games this season and the terrapins put up a healthy 32.4 points per game to rank 47th nationally in scoring. Maryland also ranks an encouraging 55th against the run and the Terps will be highly motivated after suffering an embarrassing 52-10 blowout loss at Minnesota last weekend. Last but not least, Maryland has gone 4-1 ATS in their last 5 home games.

Michigan vs Maryland Expert Analysis and Prediction

While Maryland is playing at home and has gone 9-4 ATS in their last 13 games following a straight up loss of more than 20 points, Michigan is a perfect 4-0 ATS in their last 4 meetings and 5-2 ATS in their last 7 games following a ATS win. Last weekend’s stunning rout over Notre Dame, combined with Maryland’s pitiful effort against Minnesota means the handwriting is on the wall for this week 10 matchup. Michigan is the better team in all three phases and they’re riding high right now. I like the Wolverines to get the huge win and ATS cover in this one!
