Maryland vs. Minnesota Prediction

Maryland vs. Minnesota – 2/18/16 – College Hoops Picks & Predictions

At 8:00PM ET tonight on the Big Ten Network No. 6 Maryland will visit Minnesota in what should be a closer game than the spread would indicate.

Our college basketball odds page shows that the Golden Gophers are 9.5-point home underdogs according to online sports book RealBet.eu. The total, meanwhile, is sitting at 140 after the number opened at 138.5.

Maryland heads into tonight’s game with a 22-4 record but is just 12-13 against the spread, including just 3-4 ATS on the road. On the other side, Minnesota has been horrible both straight up (6-19) and against the spread (5-15).

So why take a flier on Minnesota? Because the Golden Gophers have actually played up to their competition recently. In their last seven games versus an opponent with a winning record, they’ve covered the spread in five of those games. As a 19.5-point road underdog versus Iowa, the Gophers lost by only four points. In their last home game they were a 14.5-point dog and they lost to Purdue by only four points.

The Terrapins were hammered by Wisconsin in their last game and are now 245th in the nation in turnover percentage. This team often hurts itself so take the points tonight with the home dog.
