When North Carolina State visits Maryland on Wednesday night they will be looking to avoid letdown after one of the biggest wins in the school’s history.
Maryland led by Dez Wells, will be tough to beat at home anyway, but it could get a lot tougher if the Wolf pack are still thinking about the big win over the Duke Blue Devils. North Carolina State used a 25-point outburst by C.J. Leslie to get the win and beat the No. 1 team in the country. However, the odds makers believe that it will be tough to recover from that type of victory.
Despite the big win over Duke, Maryland’s home court could be teh reason for the low betting line for this ACC matchup.
The college basketball odds makers labeled the Terrapins as (-1) point favorites in the North Carolina State vs Maryland game suggesting that it will be a very competitive game. The betting line could be higher considering how poorly the Wolf Pack has played at Maryland in the past. Wanna Bet On College Basketball? Click here for a $900 free play
The Wolf pack are 1-10 against the spread (ATS) in the last 11 meetings overall to include 1-5 ATS in the last six games at Maryland.
The Terps are in search of a win to attempt to break the current two game losing streak they are mired in. Maryland is a very excellent basketball team that wins with defense. Maryland leads the ACC in defensive field-goal percentage at 35.3 and will be backed by a rowdy home crowd searching for a big win.
The Terrapins are 8-2 ATS in their last 10 games following a loss and 9-3 ATS in the last 12 home games. The Wolf pack will not be able to recover from the big win and will lose in the letdown game against a defensive minded Maryland squad eager to get back in the win column.
