Rutgers is 5-0 ATS in their last 5 games following an ATS loss and 4-0 ATS in their last 4 road games while the under is 6-0 in their last 6 games in December. Maryland is 1-5 ATS in their last 6 games on turf and 3-13 ATS in their last 16 games following a bye week while the under is 5-1 in their last 6 games overall.
This is a tough one to call as Rutgers is struggling mightily, but Maryland’s only had one game in the last month and didn’t look good in that game. Instead of trying to figure out a side in this one, I’m going to side with the under. I just envision this being a sloppy game with a lot of running the football and a ton of missed plays from both sides that keep this one under the number.
