NCAAB: UNC Has Had Maryland’s Number

December gets started with a massive college basketball matchup between the Maryland Terrapins and the North Carolina Tar Heels Tuesday. UNC has been dominating Maryland over the past several years, as the Tar Heels are 8-0 SU and 6-2 ATS in the past eight meetings between the teams.

Betting Trends
  • This is the first time Maryland and UNC meet when they are both ranked in the top 10 since 1999.
  • Maryland is 11-0 SU in their last 11 games coming off two days rest.
  • The UNDER is 7-3 in UNC’s past 10 games against the Big Ten.

Although a loss to Northern Illinois has diminished their profile, UNC is still 5-1 without start guard Marcus Paige who has missed every game this season with a fractured bone in his non-shooting hand. However, coach Roy Williams announced that Paige’s first action of the season will come Tuesday against Maryland.

This Terrapins group is the most talent-laden they have had in years with the additions of transfers Rasheed Sulaimon and Robert Carter this offseason to aid Melo Trimble and Jake Layman. Those four players are combining for 50.7 points and 18 rebounds per game this season.
