NCAA Football: Boston College at Wake Forest Jeremy Brevard-USA TODAY Sports

Maryland football’s Quick Lane Bowl matchup against Boston College has always looked like an evenly matched game, but Vegas is still giving a slight edge to the Terps.

The Terps opened as one-point underdogs, and but now they’re favored by 2.5, according to Oddsshark.

Both teams finished the season with 6-6 records, and Boston College is only one spot behind Maryland in S&P+ at No. 88. S&P+ says each team has a 50 percent chance of winning and gives Maryland the edge by 0.1 points.

The game’s over-under is 45, which isn’t particularly high, or shocking. Neither team possesses a high-powered offense, so we could be in for a low-scoring affair.

The Terps take on the Eagles on Dec. 26 at Ford Field in Detroit, Mich.
