Maryland vs. Alabama NCAA Tournament Betting Prediction
Alabama only laying 5.5 points feels like a trap so I’m staying away from the side and rolling with the total instead. The under is 6-1 in the Terps’ last seven games overall, is 5-1 in their last six NCAA Tournament games and is 8-2 in their last 10 neutral site games as an underdog. The under is also 4-0 in Maryland’s last four NCAA Tournament games as an underdog and is 5-2 in its last seven games as an underdog.
On the other side, the under is 6-2 in the Crimson Tide’s last eight games overall, is 4-1 in their last five neutral site games and is 4-1 in their last five NCAA Tournament games.
