Maryland vs Nebraska NCAAB Lines & Betting Prediction

Written by on February 4, 2019

Maryland travels to Lincoln, Nebraska on Wednesday, Feb. 6 to battle the Big Ten rival Cornhuskers. Although Maryland has had a better season than Nebraska, the Huskers won’t just lie down and let the Terps kick them. Can Maryland escape Lincoln with a win and cover? Or, will Nebraska hand the Terrapins a loss?

Maryland vs Nebraska NCAAB Lines & Betting Prediction

Why Maryland Terrapins are a good bet ATS?

Maryland was ranked in the Top 25 before a 55-69 loss to Michigan State on the road seemed to send them into a spiral. Since the loss to MSU on Jan. 21, the Terps have dropped games to Illinois and Wisconsin.

Things could be looking up for the Terrapins, though. The loss to Wisconsin happened on the road and up until the final two minutes, the Terps were in that game. Maryland is 5-2 ATS in away games this season. They should be poised to win and cover versus Nebraska on Feb. 6.

Why Nebraska Cornhuskers a good bet ATS?

Is Maryland a safe betting pick for Wednesday in the NCAAB?

Since back-to-back victories over Penn State and Indiana, the Nebraska Cornhuskers have been in a freefall. They’ve lost 5 in a row, going 0-5 ATS in the process.

The Huskers have a shot to turn things around against the Maryland Terrapins on Wednesday, though. While Nebraska faces a tall order to win the game, they do have a home court advantage that should give them an edge against the spread. The Cornhuskers might not win SU, but they can definitely cover ATS.

Maryland vs Nebraska Final NCAAB Analysis

It’s difficult to back either one of these teams because neither’s all that sharp. However, because Maryland is the road team, they’ll offer more value as the favorite than if they faced the Cornhuskers at home.

While the Terrapins haven’t played well, they did stick with a much, much better team on the road in their last, the Wisconsin Badgers. Nebraska has just been awful during the losing streak. Even Rutgers beat the Cornhuskers.

This game could help Maryland get back into the Top 25. The Terps should win easily. They’ll beat Nebraska by at least 10 points and could beat them by close to 20.
