Iowa heads to Maryland
No. 3 Iowa has been dominant in the Big Ten thus far, but the Hawkeyes face their toughest challenge yet when they face No. 8 Maryland on the road at 7PM ET.
According to oddsmakers at RealBets, Maryland is favored entering this game, as the Terrapins are getting odds of -4 points against the Hawkeyes tonight. The over/under total for the game has been set at 146.5 points.
The Hawkeyes are 7-0 in the Big Ten and riding a 9-game winning streak. However, it’s the size of their wins that are getting notice. Iowa has seven double-digit wins in this win streak and the Hawkeyes are 5-2 against the spread in the Big Ten and 4-1 ATS in road games. They also come into this game at 3-1 ATS as an underdog.
Maryland (6-2 Big Ten) hasn’t been terribly comfortable as a favorite. The Terrapins are 9-9 ATS as a favorite this season and just 4-7 ATS at home. The pressure is on Maryland to win as well, as they can’t afford to fall three games behind Iowa in the conference. This will also be the first top-10 matchup at XFINITY Center, so the eyes of the world will be on the Terps tonight.
