Big Ten Betting Odds
Although Minnesota got beat down by Michigan last week, the top sportsbooks believe that they will have an easy time this week in Maryland. Minnesota opened as 17.5 point favorites and that number has skyrocketed. The Golden Gophers are now 20.5 point favorites and over 55 percent of the betting public is willing to lay that number with Minnesota. This is not a surprise as the gophers have talent on offense and will be hard to slow down.
RASHOD BATEMAN IS A PROBLEM💪

Like Minnesota, Maryland had a rather ugly loss in the first week of Big Ten action. They lost 43-3 and they have little reason to be optimistic this season. Taulia Tagovailoa started at QB for Maryland, but his outing was a disaster. He had just 94 yards on the day and had three interceptions. They have been a bad bet when getting points as the Terrapins are 8-20 ATS in their last 28 games as an underdog.
Minnesota vs Maryland predictions
Minnesota is mad and focused and that is not a good sign for a Maryland team that is just not good. The Terrapins defense has big issues with gap assignments on defense. They allowed over 300 yards on the ground to Northwestern and they will have a bigger problem slowing down the Gophers. The Gophers have superstars all over the field to include Reshod Bateman who will have a field day against Maryland. The Golden Gophers are 17-5-4 ATS in their last 26 games following a loss against the spread and they are 8-3 ATS in their last 11 games overall. Minnesota will put on a scoring clinic and take down the Terrapins.
