After losing the opener of a six-year stretch during which the Big Ten foes meet every season, the Maryland Terrapins posted back-to-back victories over the Minnesota Golden Gophers to take a 3-1 lead in the all-time series. Minnesota bounced back in a big way last year, cruising to a 52-10 triumph at home. The Golden Gophers attempt to make it two in a row when they visit the Terrapins on Friday. Kickoff from Capital One Field at Maryland Stadium is set for 7:30 p.m. ET. Minnesota (0-1) began its 2020 eight-game schedule exclusively against conference opponents with a 49-24 home loss to Michigan on Saturday. 

Maryland (0-1) also came up empty in its season opener as it was outgained 537-207 in a 43-3 setback at Northwestern. The Golden Gophers are 20-point favorites in the latest Minnesota vs. Maryland odds from William Hill, while the over-under for total points scored is 61. Before making any Maryland vs. Minnesota picks, check out the college football predictions from the SportsLine Projection Model.

The SportsLine Projection Model simulates every FBS college football game 10,000 times. Over the past four-plus years, the proprietary computer model has generated a stunning profit of almost $4,000 for $100 players on its top-rated college football picks against the spread. It is a sizzling 29-19 on top-rated picks through seven weeks of the 2020 college football season, returning nearly $500 in profit already. Anyone who has followed it has seen huge returns.

Now, the model has set its sights on Minnesota vs. Maryland. You can visit SportsLine now to see the picks. Here are the college football odds from William Hill and trends for Maryland vs. Minnesota:

  • Minnesota vs. Maryland spread: Golden Gophers -20
  • Minnesota vs. Maryland over-under: 61 points
  • Minnesota vs. Maryland money line: Golden Gophers -1100, Terrapins +700
  • MIN: The Golden Gophers are 10-1 against the spread in their last 11 games following a double-digit home loss
  • MD: The Terrapins are 1-5 ATS in their last six overall contests

Why Minnesota can cover

The Golden Gophers used a dominant ground attack to roll past the Terrapins last season, rushing for 321 yards and four touchdowns in the rout. Treyson Potts ran four times for 42 yards and a score, but Mohamed Ibrahim was limited to 37 yards on seven carries and did not find the end zone. However, the junior should have much more success this time around.

Ibrahim was a workhorse against Michigan last weekend, running the ball 26 times for 140 yards and a pair of touchdowns. It was the seventh career 100-yard performance for the native of Baltimore, who also caught four passes for 17 yards. Tanner Morgan completed only 12 passes in last year’s victory over Maryland, but two were for touchdowns. 

Why Maryland can cover

Taulia Tagovailoa’s second impression almost has to be better than his first, as he completed only 14 of his 25 pass attempts against Northwestern for 94 yards while throwing three interceptions in his debut with the Terrapins. It was the first career start for the Hawaiian, who saw action in only three games with Alabama last season. Tagovailoa was 9-of-12 for 100 yards with one touchdown pass in those contests.

The Terrapins have performed well in home openers of late, winning 19 of their last 21. They are facing a Big Ten rival in their initial home game for the first time but are 2-0 against conference foes in that span, defeating North Carolina in 2001 and Miami in 2011 while members of the ACC. Maryland has a 3-2 edge over Minnesota in the all-time series, including a 42-13 victory on Sept. 22, 2018 in the last meeting at home.

How to make Minnesota vs. Maryland picks

SportsLine’s model is leaning under on the total, while neither team produces a 100-yard rusher or receiver in the simulations. It also has generated an against-the-spread pick that cashes in 60 percent of simulations. You can only get the pick at SportsLine

So who wins Minnesota vs. Maryland? And which side of the spread hits 60 percent of the time? Visit SportsLine now to see which side of the Maryland vs. Minnesota spread to back, all from the advanced model that is up nearly $4,000 on its top-rated college football spread picks, and find out.
