Duke Odds: Favored vs Maryland

Maryland looks to rebound from consecutive losses when they host the Duke Blue Devils in ACC betting action Wednesday.

The Terapins opened as 10.5-point home underdogs against a team they have beaten only once in 10 tries. The Blue Devils point spread also reflects their frustration at having lost at home Saturday against Florida State.

Bettors expect them to rebound strongly here with motivation to return to top spot in the ACC. Interestingly, the NCAA hoops computer predicts an 83-72 win for Duke, which would just barely cover the spread.
