NCAA Basketball Betting Trends

Rhode Island

The Rams are 6-2 ATS in their last eight games overall. Rhode Island is 0-5 ATS in its last five non-conference games.

Maryland

The Terrapins are 34-16-4 ATS in their last 54 Saturday games. Maryland is 1-4 ATS in its last five home game.

Prediction:

Maryand isprimed for a strong season, but it faces a Rhode Island squad that is no slouch after going 18-15 a season ago and appears to be considerably better this season. I think the underdogs stay within the number tonight as it gives the Terrapins a good game on national television. This could be the kind of confidence-boosting game that propels the Rams' season forward.
