Maryland vs Penn State Prediction & Pick

This is a conference rivalry that Penn State has simply dominated over the years. The Nittany Lions are 41-3-1 straight up in 45 head-to-head matchups against the Terrapins. Four of the last five meetings between these two teams has resulted in a double-digit win for head coach James Franklin.

Seeing a different result on Saturday would be surprising. The Terrapins are allowing the fourth-most passing yards in the Big Ten (239.7), so look for quarterback Sean Clifford to perform well. After all, he picked apart Maryland's secondary to the tune of 363 passing yards and 3 touchdowns in 2021.

Final Score Prediction: Maryland: 20 | Penn State: 34

Maryland vs Penn State Best Bet

Clifford has a chance to ball out through the air, but the duo of Allen and Singleton could have a huge day as well. Penn State is averaging a reliable 4.6 yards per carry this season (T-No. 41 in FBS) and now faces a Maryland defense that allowed 280 rushing yards to Wisconsin in its most recent game.

There is a notable edge in this game. Not only is Maryland 1-5 straight up in its last six games against Penn State, but it is also 1-5 against the spread (ATS) during that span. The Terrapins are 3-7 ATS in their last 10 road games, too, while the Nittany Lions are 6-3 ATS in their last nine games overall.
