NCAA FREE PICK: Take Maryland. According to latest college basketball trends, WakeForest is 7-21 ATS in their last 28 Thursday games,  1-4 ATS in their last 5 games following a ATS win and 1-4 ATS in their last 5 games vs. a team with a winning S.U. record. Maryland is 6-0 ATS in their last 6 games following a S.U. loss,  4-1-1 ATS in their last 6 Thursday games, favorite is 5-0-1 ATS in the last 6 meetings and is 7-0-1 ATS in the last 8 meetings. Wake Forest (13-17 SU, 16-11-1 ATS) is coming off a solid, 90-79 win over Virginia Tech last Sunday, 90-79 at home as a 6-point betting odds favorite. Maryland (20-11 SU, 11-12-1 ATS) is coming off a devastating 61-58 overtime loss at Virginia as a 9-point betting dog last Sunday.n Maryland might have to win the ACC Tournament to make the NCAA's. But a win over Duke in the next round might put them through. That would give them two wins over Duke, who is a lock to get a number one seed in the NCAA Tournament. But to earn a trip to the second round, they have beat Wake Forest, a team they defeated by 10 points on the road and by 26 at home on Feb. 2. In the first game at College Park, Maryland outrebounded Wake Forest, 42-19, led by sophomore center Alex Len, who has 12 points and nine boards. In the second game on the road, Maryland outrebounded the Demon Deacons by eight led by Len, who had 10 boards. Sophomore Dez Wells led the Terps with 23 points on 11-of-12 shooting. Wake Forest just doesn't match up well with the bigger and deeper Terps who have to win this game to keep their slim NCAA hopes alive.
