The last time these two teams met, we were treated to a game that went right down to the wire. It was Maryland who won that one, and the expectation is that they will be made the favorite for this game, especially as they hold the home court advantage. This has all the makings of another close one, which makes for a good betting game.
Why bet on the Wisconsin Badgers
The Badgers (15-9, 7-4) are on a hot streak right now, and that makes them a very dangerous proposition. They have won 6 straight games coming into this one, and have taken the scalps of a couple of ranked teams along the way. It was a rough start to conference play for the Badgers, which was the same time as their loss to the Terrapins went down. The Badgers have won their last two games on the road, including a gritty OT win versus Indiana. For the most part, it has been defense that has carried the Badgers through this winning streak, and they are going to have to be at their very best to shut down the Terrapins on Saturday. Wisconsin are averaging 69.7 PPG, and are giving up 64.8 PPG.
Why bet on the Maryland Terrapins
The Terrapins (22-3, 10-2) are another team on a good run of form, as they are coming into this game having won each of their last 5. The results are all the more impressive when you consider that the Terrapins could have gone in the tank after losing to Michigan State a couple of weeks back. 2 of the 3 losses that Maryland have taken this season have been against ranked opponents, and all 3 of the losses have been on the road. This is a team that has made a fortress out of their home building this season, and they will once again try to use the raucous support of their home fans to carry them past a very good Wisconsin team. The Terrapins are averaging 77.0 PPG, and are giving up 64.0 PPG.
Expert Pick and Final Score Prediction
If the last meeting between these two teams is anything to go by, this should be a tough test for the Maryland Terrapins. It is likely going to be that home court advantage that gives them the edge in this one.
