Money Line Pick
It is true that the Maryland Terrapins are are different team on the road than they are at home, just as the Minnesota Golden Gophers are a different team at home than they are on the road. Nonetheless, the Golden Gophers shouldn’t be favored on Wednesday. But they are. Minnesota had been on a three-game losing streak before getting the best of Northwestern on Sunday. Although the Terrapins lost at Ohio State this past weekend, they had previously won nine in a row. Three different guys have led the squad in scoring over the last three contests, all with at least 20 points (most recently Aaron Wiggins with 20). Maryland is 4-1-1 ATS in its last six on the road and 3-1-1 ATS in its last five as an underdog. The Golden Gophers are 2-5 ATS in their last seven overall, 0-5 ATS in their last five against opponents with winning percentages over .600, and 1-4 ATS in their last five following a win. Take the TERRAPINS and don’t both with the one point.
Over Under Pick
Minnesota leading scorer Daniel Oturu (19.7 ppg) has scored below his season average in six of the past nine games. Maryland’s Anthony Cowan Jr. scored only 10 points on 1-for-4 shooting against the Buckeyes. The under is 17-5 in the Terrapins’ last 22 following a loss. It is also 7-2 in the Golden Gophers’ last nine overall, 4-0 in their last four at home, and 6-1 in their last seven against opponents with winning percentages over .600. Lean toward the UNDER.
