College Basketball Betting Trends

Indiana

The Hoosiers are 1-4 ATS in their last five games overall. Indiana is 1-5 ATS in its last six Saturday games.

Maryland

The Terrapins are 36-17-4 ATS in their last 57 Saturday games. The favorite is 7-3 ATS in the last 10 meetings.

Prediction:

Maryland is ahead of where the Hoosiers are right now, but Indiana at least has the semblance of a dynamic offense while its defense is lagging behind a bit. Although the Terrapins got the win over a much lesser opponent Sunday, they struggled the two previous games and lost both. I'm going to bank on the Hoosiers doing enough offensively to hang in there and at least make it a game that goes down to the final few possessions. I feel more comfortable taking the points in this spot.
