Score: 79 - 68
Money Line: -105 Maryland
The Maryland Terrapins are a team squarely on the bubble in terms of the NCAA Tournament right now. A win over UNC tonight would put them on the good side of the bubble. I like their chances of picking up a "W" considering how well they have played at home this year.
Maryland is 20-9 overall and a brilliant 16-2 at home this season. It is outscoring opponents by an average of 14.2 points/game at home this year. Its home wins include NC State and Duke this year.
North Carolina is just 6-6 on the road this season. It comes in overvalued due to its current five-game winning streak. With rival Duke on deck, the Tar Heels will be overlooking the Terrapins and looking ahead to that matchup with the Blue Devils.
UNC is 2-9 ATS in road games versus very good defensive teams - shooting pct defense of
