If you are making some Music City Bowl betting picks for this game then you are going to have to really focus on what each team has been doing well. Both teams are facing NCAAF injuries ahead of this matchup, and neither team is going to be at full strength for this game.
Maryland should be able to hit on some big plays in this one, but they are also going to struggle to get stops on the other side of the ball. This should actually be one of the better games on the NCAAF schedule on Saturday, but the final result is not going to be that close.
Auburn just has so many weapons on offense, and that team is eventually going to pull away and get the big win. Take the Auburn Tigers -6.5 and also take the over 47.5 total points as there will be plenty of points scored in this matchup.

Music City Bowl Betting Preview
Tigers Ready to Run
This Auburn roster is not nearly as complete as it has been in recent years, and that has impacted the overall team stats. Auburn just hasn’t been able to find a star quarterback that is able to take over a game, but this team will be attacking Maryland on the ground.
The Tigers are averaging 198.4 rushing yards per game, and Auburn likes to spread the football around when handing it off. Jarquez Hunter leads the way with 865 rushing yards this season, but a ton of Tigers players are going to be touching the ball in this game.
The Auburn defense was solid for most of the season, but this team famously gave up some huge plays when it mattered most. Auburn will need the secondary to step up against a Maryland team that will have no problem throwing the ball down the field.
Maryland Struggling to Get Stops
The Maryland schedule was not easy to deal with this season as they are in a loaded Big Ten East Division. Maryland was actually able to challenge some of the top teams in that league, but they are in this game because they just weren’t able to win those big games.
Maryland is always going to be a team that is buried in the middle of the NCAAF standings in the Big Ten East Division, but that doesn’t mean that they can’t compete. This team was capable of scoring close to 30 points per game this season, but it might take an even better effort in this matchup.
One way to give the defense a chance to have success in this game is to run the football, but the Terrapins average just 108 yards per game on the ground. Maryland has had some success throwing the football, but they are facing a good secondary in this matchup.
