Mary­land over BOWL­ING GREEN by 17

Playbook Football (Midweek Alert) - - Page 8 1.800.playbook -

Mary­land is com­ing off an emo­tional 34-29 win over Texas as 12-point dogs, while the Fal­cons were over­whelmed at Ore­gon, 58-34, in Mario Cris­to­bal’s de­but with the Ducks. The Terps are one of 1,235 teams to win a CFB game SU as a dou­ble-digit un­der­dog and sur­pris­ingly, those same teams are 96-65-2 ATS as dou­ble-digit chalk in fol­low-up con­tests. The Ter­rap­ins coughed up a 24-7 lead to the Longhorns, but forced three turnovers in the last 6 min­utes to pull the up­set. On the flip side, Bowl­ing Green jumped out to a 10-0 lead over the Ducks, but that early ad­van­tage drifted away after Ore­gon scored 30 points in an elec­tric sec­ond quar­ter. BGSU is com­ing off a dis­ap­point­ing 2-10 cam­paign un­der HC Mike Jinks and the slump­ing Fal­cons are just in their last eight games as home dogs ( last sea­son). They’re also 0-3 SUATS against the Big Ten the last two sea­sons, los­ing by an av­er­age score of 55-9. It’s hard to like num­bers like those.
