Maryland vs. Villanova CBB Prediction:
Both teams are looking to bounce back after disappointing losses last game out.
Give me the under here, both teams like to play at a slow pace. Maryland and Villanova average right around 68 team possessions per game which puts them in the bottom 50 of NCAAB teams. Furthermore, for Maryland they haven’t been able to score when they do have the ball, they rank 323rd in ppg with 64, but they have been good defensively allowing opponents to only 61 ppg. Points should be at premium in this one. Under is the play.
