Score: 55 - 73
Point Spread: +15½/-110 Maryland
The Maryland Terrapins are showing their best value of the season today against the Duke Blue Devils. Not only is Maryland playing their best basketball of the year right now, but Duke is in a huge letdown spot.
Duke is coming off their biggest win of the season, a buzzer-beating 85-84 road victory over arch rival North Carolina. There's no question they've been getting patted on the back leading up to this game, and they'll come out flat this afternoon because of it.
The Blue Devils have been prone to getting upset at home this season. Duke lost 73-76 as a 10-point home favorite to Florida State, and they also lost 74-78 to Miami as a 12-point favorite in their last game at Cameron Indoor.
Maryland is a perfect 4-0 ATS in their last 4 games overall. While the Terrapins are just 4-5 in ACC play, they are an impressive 6-2-1 ATS. They have not lost an ACC game by more than 14 points this season, and that came at Florida State.
Duke is 0-9 ATS in their last 9 home games where the total is 150 to 159.5. The Blue Devils are 0-5 ATS in their last 5 home games. The Terrapins are 4-0 ATS in their last 4 games as an underdog. Maryland is 4-0 ATS in their last 4 vs. ACC foes. These four trends make for a 22-0 system backing the Terrapins. Bet Maryland Saturday.
