Maryland Terps Betting Odds

The Maryland Terps betting odds for the 2011-2012 came in at 15/1 to win the ACC Conference. 

The team will have a new head coach in Connecticut’s former head coach Randy Edsall.

Blake Frazier of BetOnline.com says this was a wise decision:

“The biggest reason to recommend Edsall is that he lifted Connecticut from the Football Championship Subdivision (formerly Division I-AA) to a Big East championship during his tenure in New England. Now Edsall inherits a team that has failed to threaten for ACC hardware since 2003.”

Quarterback Danny O’Brien is capable of catapulting this team under the guidance of Edsall.  As a freshman last season, O’Brien racked up 2,438 passing yards and 22 touchdowns.

 

Frazier says: 

“The big source of intrigue in College Park surrounds the way in which O’Brien will (or won’t) mesh with incoming offensive coordinator Gary Crowton, who is seeking a fresh start after an up-and-down stay at LSU that ended disastrously. Crowton might allow O’Brien to air it out this year, but Maryland must replace its leading receivers from 2010, Torrey Smith and Adrian Cannon. The jobs will likely fall to Ronnie Tyler and redshirt freshman Adrian Coxson.”

Defensively, the Terrapins return a lot of experienced talent, but there is still plenty of work to do and a new defensive coordinator taking over following the departure of Don Brown.

In the end, it could be the schedule that does Maryland in. The Terps open at home against Miami. They then get a week off to prepare for Big East favorite West Virginia. October features Clemson and then a trip to Florida State. The game against Notre Dame will be hard to win. The Terps then finish the season on the road at N.C. State.

“All things considered, seven or eight wins should be the ceiling, not the floor.”

Clemson +1450
