The line on the game between the 22nd-ranked Michigan Wolverines (3-1) and Maryland Terrapins (2-2) has Jim Harbaugh's team currently favored by 11-and-a-half points, according to VegasInsider.com. Just about an hour or so after the betting lines opened up, it has shifted to 12 points.

Michigan travels to College Park on Saturday night to take on a team that has played quarterback roulette all season and lost to the MAC's Bowling Green by three touchdowns and West Virginia over the weekend by a score of 45-6.

This will be Michigan's first ever trip to Maryland and second game on the road this season. Their second ranked defense should be able to stymie the Terrapins, who is ranked 84th overall in total offense.

Defensively, Maryland ranks 108th nationally, while the Wolverines rank 81st on offense.

Kickoff on Saturday night is scheduled for 8 p.m. ET on Big Ten Network.
