College Basketball – Big Ten Match-up
#24 Maryland @ # 6 Michigan
Location – Crisler Arena, Ann Arbor, MI
Line – Michigan -7
We have a huge slate of College basketball today. We are kicking the day off with a Big Ten matchup between Maryland and Michigan. Maryland (19-6) is looking to win 3 straight as they took out #12 Purdue 70-56 on Tuesday. Michigan (22-3) is looking to bounce back after they were upset by unranked Penn State on Tuesday 69 (nice) – 75.
Michigan is scoring 70.6 ppg and allowing 57.8 ppg (3rd in the nation). The Wolverines are led by 6’7 Freshman, Ignas Brazdeikis. Michigan doesn’t have the best offense in world, but they don’t give up positions by turning it over. They are ranked 2nd in the nation in turnovers. They thrive off their defense. They are not allowing teams to score, and opponents are just not shooting well against them. All three loses have been on the road and will look to remain undefeated at home today.
Maryland is coming off a great win against Purdue on Tuesday. However, Purdue was 28% FG% and 21% from beyond the arc. Maryland like Michigan is one of the best in not allowing points. They give up 64.6 which is 31st in the nation. The Terrapins are led by Junior, Anthony Cowan. Cowan averages 16 ppg. Coach Mark Turgeon and squad will need this win if the want a shot at winning the Big Ten regular season.
This line opened at Michigan -6 and has since moved to Michigan -7. Michigan has played well at home, but 7 points is way too much. Our models have this game as Michigan -3. With Maryland getting 4 extra points of value we recommend this as a Greenzone game. Take the points and let’s get the day started with a cover!
