4* Free CBB Betting Pick: Maryland ATS
Heading into this matchup, the Cornhuskers and Terrapins have similar offensive profiles, averaging just over 70 points per game. So far, each team has struggled from behind the arc, ranking below the NCAA average in three-point shooting percentage.
However, I see Maryland pulling out the win and covering the spread due to their advantage on the defensive end of the court. Throughout the season, the Terrapins have done a good job playing quality defense without fouling. If Nebraska can’t get to the line at their usual rate, I see this putting a dent in their ability to score.
Look for the Terrapins to pick up the win and cover the spread.
