After winning outright as 14-point home underdogs against Texas to start its season, Maryland football is heavily favored to move to 2-0 this coming weekend. The Terps are currently 16-point favorites to take down Bowling Green on Saturday, according to OddsShark.
Maryland opened at -14, but the line has shifted two points in its favor since then. Bowling Green opened its 2018 campaign with a 58-24 loss at then-No. 24 Oregon. We’ll have more on the Falcons as this week continues.
The Terps were 7.5-point favorites over the Falcons when the squads met in 2015. Bowling Green scored 42 points in the second half to win 48-27.
