Sunday Big Ten Pick

March 8, 2015

The college basketball regular season ends on Sunday with conference tournaments to follow. On Sunday night the Maryland Terrapins ranked No. 10 in the nation travel to play the Nebraska Cornhuskers. The Terrapins are favored in this game by 2.5 points.

Maryland has clinched the No. 2 seed for the upcoming Big Ten conference tournament later this week and is currently 13-4 SU in conference play. The Terrapins have won 6 straight games overall while covering the spread on four of their past five.

Last Thursday Maryland defeated Rutgers 60-50 as a road favorite by 7 points with the point total cashing UNDER on a line of 131 points. The point total has cashed UNDER in 7 of Maryland’s past 9 games. Melo Trimble and backcourt mate Dez Wells are averaging a combined 31.2 points as well as 5.8 assists per game.

This season has been long and disappointing for Nebraska. The Cornhuskers are 5-12 SU in the Big Ten and 13-16 SU and 8-18-1 ATS on the season. Nebraska has lost 7 straight games and is 2-8 against the number in its past 10 games.

The point total has cashed on the OVER in 4 of Nebraska’s past 5 games. The Cornhuskers are allowing 1.6 more points per game than they are scoring, which is why they are an under .500 team on the season.

A bright spot amongst the darkness is Terran Petteway who leads the Huskers in scoring at 17.8 points per game and is second in rebounding at 4.8 per game.
