VEGAS BET OF THE NIGHT SATURDAY 10/8

After a great Friday, here comes Saturday!


Purdue at Maryland

Maryland -3.0 / -145 / 59


Defensively, Purdue allows 214 yards per game in the air (54th FBS) and 316 yards overall (27th FBS). Offensively, they are averaging 32.8 points per game and 286.8 yards passing yards per game. Despite these numbers, Purdue lost at home to Penn State 35-31, barely beat FAU 28-26 at home, went on the road to Syracuse and lost 32-29 (East Coast). And against Minnesota it was 10-10 in the 3rd quarter before they pulled away thanks to Minnesota's six turnovers. So, upsetting Minnesota 20-10 on the road last week as 9-point dogs seems big, but was it? . Maryland is coming off a 27-13 home win over Michigan State and is 1-1 in the Big Ten East. Maryland is 4-1 overall this season. Maryland scheduled cream puffs at home in the first two games of the season. They beat Buffalo 31-10, then Charlotte 56-21, then they faced SMU at home and won 34-27. They went on the road to Michigan and played extremely tough, losing 34-27 as a 17-point road dogs. On October 1, they were at home and beat the Michigan State Spartans by 14 points (27-13) AND held MSU to no points in the second half. Maryland QB, Taulia Tagovailoa, threw for 314 yards with one TD and also ran for a TD. Tagovailoa went 32 of 41 and moved ahead of Boomer Esiason for third place on Maryland's career list in yards passing. Offensively, Maryland ranks 23rd FBS in total offense (478.4ypg) and 18th FBS in passing yards per game (175ypg)

Who did TCU play on the road and who did Kansas play at home? I think this tells a story on how things play out. Both teams have a common Opponent Iowa State. Kansas played a strong defensive game and TCU was blown out by Iowa State. TCU went on the road and played weak opponents, Colorado 0-5, SMU 2-3. Kansas played average teams Duke 4-1 and West Virginia 2-3 When a home team is playing an evenly matched team statistically, take the points. In this case Kansas gets points.

Liberty at UMass

Liberty -24.5 / -3500 / 49.5


UMass Amherst says the timing is sheer coincidence. But the fact that the athletic department’s first “Pride Day'' will take place when the Liberty University football team is in town on October 8 is receiving some scrutiny. Liberty is the Jerry Falwell-founded Christian school in Lynchburg, Va., that explicitly prohibits and imposes stiff punishments for statements and behaviors associated with LGBTQ+ lifestyles Since 2018 UMass is 4-9 at home vs FBS competition with wins coming over UConn, Akron, Charlotte and Liberty 62-59 Liberty comes into this matchup with UMass (1-4) just a point away from being unbeaten this season.
