Howard Bison vs. Maryland Terrapins - 8/31/19 Free CFB Pick
The time has come once again where college football fans all over the globe are ready to kick off another season – Welcome to the beginning of a new College Football campaign. On Saturday, August 31st the first week of college football picks will begin as Pickswise, the home of free College Football Picks dives into the winning picks of Howard Bison vs. Maryland Terrapins.
Against The Spread Pick
The Howard Bison from NCAA’s FCS level pays a visit to Maryland’s Byrd Stadium to kick-off their respective 2019 seasons. The Terps will look to improve on a 5-7 season from last season with new head coach Mike Locksley along with QB transfer Josh Jackson who was a two-year starter at Virginia Tech. Howard has done well against the spread in their last six games where they were able to cover in five of those six. The Bison faced two FBS teams last season and were able to cover the spread against the Ohio Bobcats in a 38-32 loss. Maryland is 2-4 ATS in their last six games, have lost four straight games heading into this season. The Terps are 4-1 ATS in their last five games at home. Anthony MacFarland should have a big game in the backfield for Maryland, in route to a win and the Terps covering the spread.
Over Under Pick
The last time Howard and Maryland faced-off Terps were able to get a 52-13 victory coming up just about a point shy of an over total. The total has gone over in four of Howard’s last six games. The over-under for this match-up is 65.5 and that looks reachable as the talent gap definitely favors the Terps along with the possibility of Maryland scoring a big win to kick-of the season. However I think this game will be pretty one-sided, and the Terps will put up some points, but come up short of the 65.5 total. The under is a slight lean here.
