NCAA FREE PICK: Take Virginia. According to latest college basketball trends, Maryland is 4-10-1 ATS in their last 15 road games and is 3-9-1 ATS in their last 13 games vs. a team with a winning S.U. record. Virginia is 4-1 ATS in their last 5 games following a S.U. loss, 16-4-1 ATS in their last 21 home games,  13-6 ATS in their last 19 Sunday games and is 17-8-1 ATS in their last 26 games overall.

Maryland (20-10 SU, 10-12-1 ATS) is onne of the most up-and-down teams in the country. And that's why they are barely on the bubble coming into this game after losing to North Carolina, 79-68 at home on Wednesday, giving 1. Virginia (20-10 SU, 17-9-1 ATS) sits at 10-7 in the ACC, but thanks to a low RPI, desperately need this game. It doesn't help that they lost the last two on the road to Florida State and Boston College. Neither of those teams are close to being in the NCAA Tournament. Virginia has won 16 straight at home for a reason. They play great defense and they have one of the best players in the league in Joe Harris. They have also won five straight against Maryland. The Cavaliers allow just 54.5 points per game and Maryland turns the ball over at will since they lack a true point guard.
