College Basketball Betting Trends

Maryland

The Terrapins are 3-1-1 ATS in their last five games overall. Maryland is 1-5 ATS in its last six games as a road favorite.

Northwestern

The Wildcats are 9-20-1 ATS in their last 30 games overall. The home team is 2-7 ATS in the last nine meetings.

Prediction:

The Terrapins are the undisputed better team here, but the issues are the fact that they have struggled mightily on the road lately and this is not exactly a small spread to cover. Maryland has dropped all four of its road games straight up this season and while all of those opponents were considerably better than Northwestern, I'd still rather not give the points until it proves it can play a complete game away from home.
