College Basketball Betting Trends
The Terrapins are 4-1-1 ATS in their last six games overall. Maryland is 1-3-1 ATS in its last five road games.
The Hoosiers are 1-4 ATS in their last five Sunday games The favorite is 8-3 ATS in the last 11 meetings.
The Terrapins are nasty defensively and have seemed to right the ship after a rough stretch. I could also see Indiana having a letdown at home after its last home game was a gutty win over a well-regarded MSU squad. Maryland has had road issues this season, but perhaps getting its first straight up road victory of the season at Northwestern kicked something up and it becomes road warriors once more. The Terrapins are the better team and I'm going to take a shot here.
