College Basketball Betting Trends
The Wolverines are 11-2 ATS in their last 13 Sunday games. Michigan is 13-5 ATS in its last 18 road games.
The Wolverines might have beaten Maryland 65-52 in Ann Arbor last month, but Maryland has won seven in a row straight up at home so betting on it as a small dog is certainly enticing. While Michigan is the better team defensively, the Terrapins are comparable on the offensive end and certainly no slouches on defense. Look for Maryland to bounce back from a rough performance last time out.
