The Maryland Terrapins are on the outside looking in in both of the major polls, and they host a team that is in the top 20 of both this weekend in the West Virginia Mountaineers. But the oddsmakers must have seen something they liked from the Terps in their first game because the Terps are reportedly favorites in that contest now.
West Virginia opened-3 at Maryland. Now Maryland is a one point favorite at home.
I personally prefer to play the underdog role, and it seems like Randy Edsall might have that personality as well, but we'll have to see how the Terps handle being the "favorite" in this one. But based on the rankings, I think coach Edsall might still be able to find some bulletin board material.
