Undefeated Wolverines Look to End ATS Slide- November 5, 2016

Unbeaten straight up in their past 10 overall, the Michigan Wolverines will try to end a two-game against the spread losing streak at Michigan Stadium on Saturday afternoon, when they host the Maryland Terrapins in a Week 10 college football betting matchup.

– Shark Bites
  • Michigan is 8-2 ATS in its last 10 games after consecutive ATS losses.
  • The total has gone OVER in nine of Michigan’s last 10 games against teams with winning records.
  • Maryland is 3-11 SU in its last 14 games against its conference.

The 8-0 Wolverines remained one of just five undefeated teams in the nation with last week’s 32-23 win over archrival Michigan State, but failed to cover as 23.5-point road chalk to fall to 1-3 ATS in their past four. Michigan has also struggled to pay out at the sportsbooks at home, going 1-3 ATS in their past four, but has held visitors to 14 or fewer points in five of six this season.

The Terrapins are coming off a 42-36 loss in Indiana as 3.5-point underdogs, dropping them to 1-3 SU and ATS in their past four, including a pair of outright losses as betting chalk. Maryland is winless SU in 16 outings as underdogs by 20 or more points, dating back to 1997, but have covered in each of their past three.

Michigan handed the Terrapins a 28-0 beating last season as 13.5-point road chalk, but dropped a 23-16 decision to Maryland at The Big House two years ago, failing to cover as six-point favorites in the first meeting between the two teams since 1990.
