I don’t see this one playing out as a shootout. Both offenses should be good this year, but neither will have the identity of wanting to turn games into a shootout. CMU’s primary deficiencies on defense are along the front seven, while the offense’s ground-heavy attack will find more resistance than it’s used to against the Pokes.

Maryland -23.5 (-110)
Maryland could have one of the most dangerous offenses in college football this season. Led by QB Taulia Tagovailoa and one of the best wide receiver groups in the country, this unit will be tough to slow down. They open 2022 against a Buffalo squad that ranked 93rd in scoring and total defense in 2021. And the Bulls offense won’t have enough firepower to keep up.

Cedric Mullins o1.5 total bases (+110)
Cedric Mullins, Baltimore’s most reliable offensive option since the beginning of 2021, has racked up 195 total bases in 123 games this year and has been on fire in August, slashing .315/.380/.506. The lefty-swinging outfielder also mashes sinkers to the tune of a .333 batting average this year, which happens to be Guardians hurler Cal Quantrill’s bread and butter. Grab the Over on Mullins’ total bases prop tonight.

Justin Dunn u4.5 strikeouts (-160)
Reds starter Justin Dunn might have a rough day ahead of him against the hot-hitting Cardinals. St. Louis is one of the best teams at making consistent contact and avoiding punchouts, posting an 18% strikeout rate over the last 30 days (third in MLB). This doesn’t bode well for Dunn, who lasted just 11 outs in his lone start at hitter-friendly Great American Ballpark this season.
Josh Inglis – Pick Made 6 hrs, 45 min ago.
Tyler O’Neill o1.5 total bases (+115)
Plenty of Cardinals batters are in a good position to do damage today but Tyler O’Neill is our pick. He has seven hits (five homers) in his last 22 at-bats and Reds starter Dunn gets barreled up at nearly double the league average. With conditions also favoring hitters, O’Neill clearing his total bases prop is our pick.
