15* Maryland/UNC ESPN Wednesday No-Brainer on Maryland +18
Maryland vs. North Carolina,
02/29/2012 19:00 EDT,
Score: 64 - 88
Point Spread: +18/-110 Maryland
The Maryland Terrapins look to shock the work Wednesday when they travel to Chapel Hill to take on the North Carolina Tar Heels. I have no doubt the Terrapins can make a game out of this as they'll be more jacked up for this game than any other game of the season.
The Terrapins still have an outside shot at making the NCAA Tournament. They play UNC tonight and then Virginia next, so those two wins would certainly look great on a resume. Maryland will be laying it all on the line tonight as they look to revenge a 74-83 home loss to the Tar Heels in their first meeting this season on February 4th.
UNC is in a huge letdown spot tonight. The Tar Heels will travel to face Duke on Saturday with the ACC title at stake no matter what happens in this game. That is one of the best rivalries in all of sports, so there's no question it's going to be tough for UNC not to overlook Maryland. They will overlook the Terrapins just enough to allow them to cover this inflated number.
The Terrapins are 5-0 ATS in their last 5 games following a S.U. loss. Maryland is 36-17-3 ATS in their last 56 Wednesday games. The Terrapins are 6-1 ATS in their last 7 meetings with the Tar Heels. They haven't lost to North Carolina by more than 17 in any of those seven contests. Take Maryland Wednesday.
