NCAA Basketball Betting – Terrapins aim for upset of Blue Devils

by on June 16, 2013

March Madness betting players are salivating at the impending Tournament, but first, teams need to get to the conference championships. An excellent ACC matchup should be the focus of sportsbook players on Wednesday, as Maryland hosts No.7 Duke, fresh off an upset of another big school from the Chapel Hill area.

Duke vs Maryland odds – Wednesday, 9:00 PM ET

The Blue Devils (22-5, 8-4) are still in the hunt for first in the ACC after wins over St. Joseph’s and Wake Forest, and if Gerald Henderson can replicate his performance against the Demon Deacons in the Tournament, Duke’s March Madness odds will increase. The junior swingman lit up Wake Forest for 35 points, but his problem all year has been consistency. Three of Duke’s last four games are on the road, where they’ve been less than impressive with a 4-4 mark so far. Teams who get rattled away from home usually don’t have great March Madness odds.

The Terrapins (17-9, 6-6) kept their name in the hat for an at-large Tournament bid with a massive overtime win over North Carolina in which Maryland rallied from a 16-point deficit. Junior guard Greivis Vasquez had Maryland’s first triple-double since 1987, putting 33 points along with 11 rebounds and 10 assists to power the Terrapins to an unlikely victory. But the Terrapins can’t depend on Vasquez too heavily again: he’ll need help, especially from junior forward Landon Milbourne, who had only six points in the Carolina game.

These two have split their last 10 meetings, but Duke has taken the last three, including an 85-44 destruction of the Terrapins at home on January 24th. Maryland will be up for this game, and they’ll keep it respectable, but they don’t have enough weapons to consistently compete with the elite of the ACC. Look for Duke’s Kyle Singler to have a big game, so make the Blue Devils your online betting pick.
