Can Maryland cover a double-digit spread?

Illinois vs. Maryland – 3/3/16 College Basketball Picks and Predictions

No. 14 Maryland looks to pick up a large victory at home tonight when the Terrapins host Illinois at 7PM ET on ESPN.

According to oddsmakers at Bovada.lv, Maryland is the clear favorite at home, as the Terrapins are getting odds of -15 points against Illinois. The over/under total for this game has been set at 142 points.

Maryland is 23-6 overall, 11-5 in the Big Ten, 15-1 at home and 12-15-1 against the spread. Illinois is 13-16 overall, 5-11 in the Big Ten, 2-6 on the road and 12-12-3 against the spread. Illinois has won three straight meetings with Maryland and cover in the last two in the series. These two have hit the under in four of their last six meetings.

Who does the public like in this game?

Illinois has been a very up and down team this season, but it is coming off an 84-71 win over Minnesota. The Illini are 4-6-2 against the spread after a win this season, but surprisingly 6-2 against the spread on the road. Maryland is just 6-9 ATS at home this season and the Terps are 0-3-1 against the spread in their last four. Maryland should win, but they are giving up too many points for my liking.
