Bet on Maryland vs Indiana College Basketball

Posted by Henry Watkins on March 4, 2016 in

While many of the conferences are going to go down to the final game of the season to see who ends up on top, there are a few that have already been decided. One of those conferences is the super competitive Big Ten, and it is the Indiana Hoosiers who will walk away with the regular season title once the regular season draws to a close. This actually has some ramifications for those of you who are considering placing a wager on their upcoming game with the Maryland Terrapins on Sunday, as you wonder just how motivated they are going to be to go out and get the win. Since they are still looking at improving their national rankings, you have to believe that they will give it a real go. This is going to be a very fun game to watch and bet on, and you can get all of your NCAAB online wagers lined up.

Why bet on the Maryland Terrapins

The Terrapins (24-6, 12-5) have had a very good year, but they are somewhat limping towards the finish line. The past couple of weeks have not been very kind to Maryland, as they have lost 3 of their last 5 games. Those losses took them out of the running at the top of the Big Ten, but they have still performed well enough this season to hang on to their #14 national ranking. The Terrapins have had mixed success on the road during conference play, having gone 4-4 through the 8 games played so far. They have lost their last 2 road games, but make no mistake, this is a team that is still very tough to take down. Maryland are averaging 76.3 PPG, and are giving up 65.2 PPG.

Why bet on the Indiana Hoosiers

The Hoosiers (24-6, 14-3) essentially had the Big Ten sewn up heading into this week’s games, but that didn’t stop them from taking down #16 ranked Iowa 81-78. That win extended their current streak to 4 games, and has them on the sort of roll that a team really needs to hit when heading into March Madness. The one thing that the Hoosiers really have going in their favor in this game is the fact that they have yet to drop a game at home this season. What better way to finish the regular season off than a win against another ranked team in front of what is sure to be a vocal home crowd? The Hoosiers are averaging 82.8 PPG, and are giving up 69.0 PPG.

Expert Pick and Final Score Prediction

While it would be easy for the Hoosiers to take a bit of a day off in this one, they are well aware that momentum can be a very powerful thing heading into March Madness. I like Indiana to come away with another win on Sunday.
