The Ohio State football team welcomes Maryland this weekend into the Shoe. It’s a matchup of two undefeated teams, yet Maryland is somehow not ranked. They certainly would be after this week if they can pull off the major upset and beat the Buckeyes.
It should be another good test for this Ohio State defense that has played great so far this year. It’s also a game that has some juicy lines for those interested in placing some bets on this game. There are a few I took myself. There are some really good lines up there on FanDuel.
One of those is the spread itself. The Buckeyes are currently a 19.5-point favorite at -115 odds. I think Ohio State is going to be able to cover that this week because Maryland’s defense isn’t that good and Kyle McCord has all kinds of confidence after having that game-winning drive against Notre Dame.
Another line I like is the over/under for Emeka Egbuka receiving yards. Teams have been loading up on Marvin Harrison Jr., so that has allowed Egbuka to get a lot of touches. His number is 75.5, and the over is listed at -114 odds. That’s pretty enticing to take.
TreVeyon Henderson’s rushing total sits at 75.5. With him being healthy this season, he has been the featured back. The over is available at -114 odds. I expect Henderson to easily clear that number coming off another nice game against the Fighting Irish.
If you’re looking for something with plus odds, Chip Trayanum as an anytime touchdown scorer is enticing. Those odds sit at +160. Anytime the Buckeyes get close to the goal line, he is their go-to back. He’s been getting all of those touchdowns.
If you parlay all four of those bets together, you get +1117 odds. That’s a pretty fun bet if you’re an Ohio State football fan if you ask me!
