Maryland Struggling To Cover After Wins

The Maryland Terrapins have been great on the court, but not so much at the window this season. The Terps are 5-0 SU, but just 2-3 ATS and, dating back to last season, the team is just 1-4 ATS in their past five following a win. Maryland will take on the Cleveland State Vikings Saturday.

Shark Bites
  • Cleveland State is 0-4 SU and ATS in their past four road games.
  • Maryland is 10-0 SU in their last 10 games coming off two days rest.
  • Only two players in the Vikings are averaging double-digit points.

There is no doubt that the buck starts and stops with Melo Trimble for Maryland, but his last outing was astounding. The sophomore guards shot a perfect 7-for-7 on field goals while going 3-for-3 from the free throw line. The rest of the starting five has been more than adept offensively for the Terrapins, with four of the five starters averaging 12.2 points or more this season.

Cleveland State is 2-3 SU, but oddly enough, all but one of those games have been decided by at least 12 points.

Opening Odds & Computer Pick

The Cleveland State Vikings opened as 20-point underdogs in this one at most sportsbooks tracked at Odds Shark, including MyBookie. The total was set to open a bit later (check out Bovada for the latest situation).
