Mayo Bowl Maryland vs NC State Prediction and Odds 2022
Our Mayo Bowl prediction is from The Duel's official Maryland vs NC State betting preview.
These former ACC rivals have matched up more than 70 times, but this is the first time since 2013. Maryland scored at least 27 points in every game this season except a pair of early November road games at Wisconsin (23-10) and Penn State (30-0). Terps QB Taulia Tagovailoa has passed for 2,787 yards this season with 17 TD passes. However, Maryland allowed a Big Ten high 39 sacks this season.
The questionable quarterback situation for NC State makes it tougher to determine how to play this game. NC State scored 22 or less points in six of their last eight games with top QB Devin Leary missing most those games and MJ Morris starting more. But Ben Finley started the last two games and passed for 472 yards. The linemaker has adjusted the total downward and this is the lowest total in a Maryland game this season.
NC State has the ACC's top-rated pass efficiency defense. The Wolfpack do allow 233 passing yards per game at 6.8 yards per pass, and Maryland's pass defense state profile is slightly better allowing 219 YPG and 6.3 yards per pass.
