Week 10 of the college football season sees the Penn State Nittany Lions taking on the Maryland Terrapins.
Penn State is coming off of a loss and Maryland is coming off of a win.
The Nittany Lions opened up as 11.5 point favorites and that number is now down to 10. The total has stayed right around 55.5, but I have seen some that are a bit lower.
Penn State Nittany Lions
For a while now, Penn State has been a good football team, but they have not been able to get over the hump and be an elite team. 2021 is another one of those years.
The Nittany Lions covered as 19.5 point dogs to the Ohio State Buckeyes, but they did lose 33-24. They hung in there for a while, but eventually, the better team figured things out.
Sean Clifford was 35/52 for 361 yards with 1 touchdown and 1 pick. He was not the reason why his team lost. I look for him to have another strong day when going against this Maryland defense.
The running game never got going against the Buckeyes. They did a very good job of defending it. The leading receiver was Jahan Dotson who had 11 receptions for 127 yards on the day.
The defense has been a big strength of this team. Even though they gave up some points/yards to Buckeyes, I did not think the unit played poorly. It is just very hard to slow down one of the best offenses in the country.
A lot of other teams in the Big Ten are getting talked about, but Maryland is quietly having a decent season. They are not setting the world on fire, but they are better than they have been in past years.
The Terps beat the Indiana Hoosiers last week by a score of 38-35. They will be in for a much bigger challenge on Saturday when they go against Penn State.
Taulia Tagovailoa was 26/40 for 419 yards with 2 touchdowns in the win last week. I do not think things will come as easy this week when he has to face that Penn State defense.
For as good as the offense was against the Hoosiers, the running game was not the reason why. Saturday was about the receivers. Carlos Carriere and Rakim Jarrett both had big days.
The defense is still a big question mark for this team. Even if they play well, they will likely give up a decent amount of points to Penn State. I would be surprised if the Nittany Lions do not have success on that side of the ball.

I look for Penn State to take control of this game early on and not look back.

4* Free Week 10 NCAA Betting Pick:
I would be surprised if this game turns out to be competitive. Even though the two teams have the same record, I still feel Penn State is the much better team.
The Maryland defense is simply not a good one. I look for Sean Clifford to get the offense humming early and often. It would be a bad look for them if they cannot score at will against the Terrapins.
Maryland may have some success on offense, but I do not see them doing what they did last week to Indiana. Overall, I just do not think this will be a very close game.
Give me Penn State at -10 here.
