Syracuse vs. Maryland, 09/07/2019 12:00 EDT, Score: 20 - 63

Money Line: +101 Syracuse

Sportsbook: PinnacleSports

Result: Loss

*4 Star Play on Syracuse Moneyline* The Maryland Terrapins were a team with a lot of question marks heading into the season. The Terrapins demolished Howard last week, but I think this is an overreaction in the betting market.

Syracuse is a program on the rise under Dino Babers. The thing that has impressed me the most with Syracuse in recent seasons is their improvement on the defensive end. The Orange have an excellent secondary that should be able to take away a lot of Maryland's success in the passing attack. The Syracuse pass rush is strong as well and Maryland's offensive line is a weakness.

While Dungey being gone hurts the Syracuse offense, they have a deep group of running backs and I think they'll be able to run the ball here on Maryland.

I think Syracuse is the better team here by a decent margin, but the market has swung this one heavily toward Maryland because of their beatdown of Howard last week.

Take Syracuse.
