The Maryland Terrapins will be led on offense by Senior quarterback C.J. Brown for their 2014-15 College Football Picks game at Wisconsin. The Maryland Terrapins were picked to finish in the middle of the pack in the Big 10 East division and so far that is where they are. Maryland has the talent to compete with the lower tier teams in the Conference, but they need a few more recruiting classes to step it up vs. Teams like Wisconsin, Michigan State and Ohio State.Thekey to a Maryland win is to play ball control on offense and they must be able to win the battle up front against a massive Wisconsin offensive line.
The 2014-15 Wisconsin Badgers beat Illinois 38-28 at home last week, the Badgers defense allowed way to many points. Wisconsin is only 1-5 Against The Spread their 6 College Football games this season and have dropped their last 2 ATS.

Their lone Against The Spread cover was vs. Bowling Green of the Mid American Conference. Wisconsin will be led on offense by Junior quarterback Joel Stave for their game vs. Maryland. The Wisconsin Badgers returned 7 starters on offense, but only 3 on defense and that is the reason this team is so soft on that side of the football. Wisconsin was picked to win the Big 10 West division. It looked very promising in their season opener vs. Oklahoma State, but the Badgers fell apart in the 4th quarter. The key to a Wisconsin win is to run the football at least 70% of the game with All American running back Melvin Gordon.
