College Football Odds, Towson Vs. Maryland: Terps 25 1/2 Point Favorites Against FCS Towson

Licking their wounds from a shocking 31 point loss to Temple, the Maryland football team has as good an opportunity as they'll have all season to end a losing streak. The Towson Tigers make the short drive down to College Park on Saturday for what is likely the biggest game in their program's history.  As of Thursday evening, the Terrapins were favored by 25 1/2 points over the Tigers.

That's certainly on the low end for a spread between a major BCS school and an FCS school that's still in the process of building a program in the NCAA's second-tier division. After losing by 31 last week in a game in which they were favored by 10, it's certainly understandable that the oddsmakers are hesitant to set a wide spread, even if it's a glaring mismatch of talent and resources.  The over/under is set at 55 1/2.  With Ronnie Tyler and Quintin McCree back this week, Terps fans are looking for Danny O'Brien to light it up against the cupcake opponent, and surpass that over/under with little contribution from the Tigers offense.

Kickoff is set for 3:30 as the Terps look to end their two game losing streak and get back to .500.
