On paper, Maryland looks to be a team that should be able to compete with anyone. However, the Terps just haven’t been able to put together a real run. They are 3-5 in their last eight straight up and 3-4-1 against the spread in those eight games. Maryland is also just 1-4 ATS in their last 5 NCAA Tournament games. They face a South Dakota State team that has won six straight and is making its third tournament appearance since 2012. The Jackrabbits shouldn’t be intimidated in this game.
