GAME OF THE WEEK (CFB): MIKE'S TOP RATED SATURDAY TOTAL
Syracuse vs. Maryland,
09/07/2019 12:00 EDT,
Score: 20 - 63
Total: -106/+57½ Over
Both teams opened the season with a shutout win, but I expect points to come fast an easy on both ends of the field in this clash.
The No. 22 Syracuse Orange are coming off a 24-0 shutout of Liberty, but here they'll face a Maryland offense that amassed 623 yards and hung 79 points in their rout of Howard. Terps QB Josh Jackson threw four touchdowns and the team scrambled for 317 yards on the ground with five scores.
As for Cuse quarterback Tommy DeVito, he struggled against the Flames completing just 17-of-35 passes for 176 yards with two picks, but he simply has to come up with a better outing here.
Neither defense was put to the test last week, but that will definitely not be the case here. The contrast for how this game is likely to play out might come as a shock for the defenses, and they might find themselves ill-prepared.
10* play on OVER.
