Maryland vs. Tennessee Public Betting Information

Our CBB Public Betting Information page indicates that the public favors the Volunteers in this contest. Our public betting data illustrates that 52% of public bets are on Tennessee -6.5. Do note that these numbers are subject to change and could be different once tipoff rolls around, so be sure to check the link so you’re receiving the most up-to-date public betting data.

Maryland Game Notes

The Terrapins’ leading scorer is senior guard Jahmir Young. Young is averaging 15.3 points per game on 44.5% shooting from the field so far this season. He leads Maryland in assists per game with 3.0 and ranks fourth on the club in rebounding with 4.7 per game.

Maryland’s leading rebounder is sophomore forward Julian Reese. Reese is averaging 7.6 rebounds per contest for the Terps this season. He’s been scoring with tremendous efficiency this year as well, pouring in 12.3 points per game on 75.9% shooting from the floor. Maryland will need Reese’s offense and shot blocking (a team-leading 1.3 blocks per game) on defense to defeat a tough Tennessee team in this neutral site clash Sunday.  

Tennessee Game Notes

The Volunteers have four players averaging double figures in scoring on the season. Their leading scorer is freshman forward Julian Phillips. Phillips leads Tennessee in scoring with 12.2 points per game and rebounding with 5.7 per game. He is only shooting 38.7% from the field and 21.2% from deep. He’ll likely need to shoot better if Tennessee is going to cover this contest.

Senior Santiago Vescovi is one of Tennessee’s best guards. He is listed as questionable for Sunday’s game with a shoulder injury. The 6’3” Uruguayan national ranks second on the Volunteers in scoring, rebounding, assists, and steals. Vescovi has knocked down 20 3-pointers in 7 games this season, and that total leads the Volunteers for the year. If Vescovi can’t play or is limited, Volunteers guard Tyreke Key will probably have to produce for Tennessee to get a favorable result on Sunday.

Maryland vs. Tennessee CBB Prediction:

Tennessee played a neutral-site Sunday game against Colorado on November 13th of this year. The Volunteers were favored by 16 points but ended up getting thumped by the Buffaloes, losing 78-66. Their game against Maryland is another neutral-site showdown, but Maryland is far better than Colorado as a team. I think this line is a few points too high and I think Tennessee struggles again and fails to cover the number on Sunday.
