NCAA Football Betting: Cal Golden Bears vs. Maryland Terrapins

The Golden Bears look to continue their dominance against the NCAA lines when they travel to College Park for an NCAA football betting game against the Terrapins.

The Golden Bears offense has been extremely impressive in its first two games, being the only school to have scored over 100 points against I-A opponents at this point of the season. On the other side of the field, the Terrapins’ offense will try to perform better than the 14 PPG they average after playing FCS Delaware and Middle Tennessee State.

California started 2007 strong, opening the season 5-0 and reaching #2 in the polls before an injury to QB Nate Longshore led to a shocking home loss to Oregon State from which the Bears never recovered, losing six of their last eight. The offense has been outstanding so far, but last week the Bears got a big assist from their defense in the 66-3 spanking of Washington State.

The Bears defense held the Cougars to 157 total yards and a paltry nine first downs while forcing four turnovers in a dominating performance. The offense has been the reason why the Bears have been profitable for college football betting fans so far this season, covering both their spreads and playing their first two games over the ‘total’ per the NCAA odds.

Last week, the Terps suffered a stunning 24-14 loss to lowly Middle Tennessee State where the NCAA betting lines closed with them installed as 12.5-point road favorites. QB Chris Turner was less than impressive for UM completing just 13-of-28 passes for 207 yards with a TD:INT ratio of 1:3.

The defense wasn’t much better as it surrendered over 400 total yards. The Terrapins haven’t been good, even in terms of college football betting the last four seasons, as they haven’t posted a winning ATS mark since 2003. Currently, the NCAA wagering line has the Golden Bears tabbed as 14-point road favorites with a game ‘total’ of 48.

You can disagree over whether you prefer the Golden Bears or the Terrapins, but there is no disagreement that Sportsbook is where you need to go for all your NCAA football wagering in 2008.
