The Maryland Terrapins look for their first Big Ten victory to snap a five-game losing streak. Perry Hills is completing 52.3 percent of his passes for 738 yards, seven touchdowns and 10 interceptions. Hills has thrown six picks in his last two games. Levern Jacobs and D.J. Moore have combined for 494 receiving yards and four touchdowns while Taivon Jacobs has 11 receptions. The Maryland Terrapins ground game is averaging 184.2 yards per contest, and Brandon Ross leads the way with 520 yards and three touchdowns. Defensively, Maryland is allowing 33.8 points and 425.3 yards per game. Jermaine Carter, Jr. leads the Terps with 72 tackles, Sean Davis has two interceptions and Yannick Ngakoue has 10 sacks. Damian Prince is questionable.
The Badgers are 6-2 ATS vs. a team with a losing record and 1-4 ATS in their last 5 road games. The Terrapins are 3-11 ATS in their last 14 games following a ATS win and 10-2 ATS in their last 12 games following a S.U. loss.
Getting this line just under two touchdowns makes the Wisconsin Badgers my play here. Wisconsin has one of the top defenses in the country and should be able to hold a banged up Maryland team almost scorless. This could get ugly for the Terps.
