Play Maryland Terrapins -1.

Syracuse opened with a 24-0 win at Liberty. The Flames beat up on bad teams last year but had trouble scoring in step up games against Army, North Texas, Virginia and Auburn averaging 11 points per game. Syracuse broke in a first year starter at quarterback in Tommy Davito with three first year starters on the offensive line and he completed only 17 of 35 passes for 176 yards and two touchdowns. That is a major concern as the Orange plays back to back road games battling a Maryland team that showed great improvement last season on both sides of the football. Syracuse 4-8 straight up on the road past three seasons. Terrapins posted home wins to Texas and Minnesota last year and put a scare at home to Ohio St losing 52-51 as a +14 point underdog. Head coach Mike Locksley has four seasons as offensive coordinator in Maryland and was the offensive coordinator at Alabama the past two seasons. Junior quarterback Josh Jackson had a good debut as he transferred over from Virginia Tech. The distractions are gone from last year. They pounded an FCS school at home in Howard. Run game was strong for Maryland last year with 5.7 yards per run and their lead back returned this season. Maryland has been a fast start team going 6-2 straight up and against the spread the past three Septembers.
