Maryland – Minnesota Match Prediction | 26-10-2019 15:30

The Gophers have been consistent, scoring at least 34 points in their last five games. Minnesotas defense is legit, but Marylands isnt. That would have these two going under. They have allowed just 31 points combined over their last three though, so Maryland may have trouble scoring. I would expect the Gophers to win in a similar style as it has in recent weeks, maybe a 42-10-type score. These two have hit the over in their last two meetings, with Maryland leading the way. This time, Minnesota will need to lead the way if the over is going to hit.

College Football Championship Odds

Look for Minnesota quarterback Conor Rhoda to feed Johnson the ball early and often, leading to a couple of scores that loosen up the Maryland defensive front. This was largely a result of the Blue Raiders' defensepaying extra attention to him in order to force Minnesota's rushing attack to make the necessary plays. Maryland can't afford to key on Johnson, and it doesn't look like the Terrapins have anyone who can consistently hang with one of the most underrated receivers in the Big Ten for an entire game. After two monster games where he totaled 10 catches for 268 yards and two scores to start the year, Johnson was relatively quiet against Middle Tennessee in Week 3. It worked for the Gophers, as both Rodney Smith and Kobe McCrary eclipsed the 100-yard mark en route to a blowout victory.

Fleck. The Minnesota offense should be able to move the ball against the Terps consistently. Maryland could be a promising team, but the injuries at quarterback have really hampered their ability. I dont see a third-string QB having a lot of success on the road against this defense. Minnesota has looked better with each game as the defense is getting better and the offense seems to be working into the new system of P.J. I like the Gophers to cover with relative ease.

Looking him in the eyes across the line of scrimmage will be Winfield one of the best safeties in college football. The Terrapins' quarterback will need to be at his best against an underrated Gopher defense if Maryland is going to come away with the win. The two of them will be making reads based on what they see from the other all day. The winning of that chess match ultimately gives their team a huge advantage. Ty Johnson may be Maryland's most exciting player, but Hill is the straw that stirs the drink.
