Maryland Terrapins (20-10 SU, 10-12-1 ATS) at Virginia Cavaliers (20-10 SU, 17-9-1 ATS)

Virginia needs this game even though they have a 10-7 record in the ACC since their RPI is low.
Maryland just needs to win to stay alive and finish .500 in the ACC.
Virginia has won 16 straight games at home.

Keys to Success: 

Maryland needs to limit the turnovers and pound the boards against a smaller but more experienced Virginia team. The Cavs need to get Joe Harris going and not get into a track meet against a deeper Maryland team.

Last game: (2/10/13) Virginia (+2.5) over MARYLAND, 80-69. Maryland is one of the most up-and-down teams in the country. They fell to North Carolina, 79-68 at home on Wednesday, giving 1.

Intangibles:

David West gives the Heat problems since he's a physical power forward. He had 30 points in the first game.
Indiana has no fear as they've beaten Miami twice this year and allowed a combined 166 points.
Miami has won 17 straight games and is 28-3 SU at home.

Keys to Success:

The Pacers need to make this a halfcourt game and feed the big man, Roy Hibbert (7-2, 270) against Chris Bosh (6-11, 230) and Udonis Haslemn (6-8, 240). Miami wants to make this more of a track meet.

Last game: (2/1/13) INDIANA (+2) over Miami, 102-89. Indiana has won three of the last four games including an easy 115-86 win over Orlando on Friday, laying 9 on the road.  Miami has won 17 straight games and the last time they lost was on February 1 against the Pacers. Indiana has won all two meetings this season with the Heat. They are a difficult team to play for the Heat because they have a lot of size led by 7-foot-2 Roy Hibbert and 6-foot-9 David West, who had 30 points in their last meeting. Miami is 0-5 ATS last 5 home games. Pro Hoops Odds: Miami is a 7.5-point favorite. Total: 195.0
