Maryland safe bet to cover vs. Wisconsin?
Milwaukee native Diamond Stone and No. 3 Maryland will take on Wisconsin at 1:00PM ET on ESPN today. Are the Terps a safe bet to cover?
Oddsmakers from online sports book BetDSI currently list Maryland as a 3.5-point favorite over Wisconsin for today's game. The Terps enter play with a 14-1 overall record but are 7-8 against the spread, while the Badgers are 9-7 straight up and just 6-10 at the betting window.
Wisconsin will have issues with Stone, who is averaging 18.2 points per game over his last five contests and 21.3 PPG and 8.3 rebounds in his last three games.
