NCAAB Betting: Rutgers vs Maryland Odds

The Maryland Terrapins entered the college hoops season as the favorite to win the Big Ten, and they’ve done nothing but live up to those lofty expectations at the midpoint of the campaign. The third-ranked Terps (13-1 SU) have won seven in a row and will be seeking to make that eight Wednesday evening when they welcome Rutgers to the Xfinity Center. Maryland is a perfect 8-0 SU at home this year.

Shark Bites
  • Rutgers is 2-9 ATS in its last 11 games against its conference.
  • The total has gone UNDER in 17 of Maryland's last 23 games as favorites in January.
  • The total has gone UNDER in five of Rutgers' last seven games as underdogs.

Conference opponents have not put up much of a fight against Maryland as of late. The Terrapins have won eight in a row when facing Big Ten competition – the school’s longest streak since 2002. Subsequently, the Terps went on to win the national championship that year.

UNDER bettors have been loving the Terrapins recently, and for good reason. The UNDER is 4-1-1 in Maryland’s last six contests.

Is there such a thing as too much rest for college basketball teams? If you’ve been betting on the Scarlet Nights when they’ve had plenty of days off, you likely believe there is. Rutgers is an ugly 0-8 SU in their last eight coming off three days rest -- the same position they find themselves in tonight in the wake of Monday’s 79-57 setback to Wisconsin.
