Maryland vs Louisville Prediction & Pick

Talk about a perfect matchup for the Terrapins' first road test of the season. Louisville's offense has been one of the worst in the country, averaging a dismal 58.7 points per game (T-No. 339 in NCAA) and shooting 39.5% from the floor (T-No. 305 in NCAA). Its defense has not been much better, either.

The Cardinals are allowing 72.0 points per game (T-No. 209 in NCAA) on a 47.8% shooting mark (No. 301 in NCAA). It's not going to be hard for Maryland to score the basketball in this game, especially with Reese coming off his best game of the season. The Terrapins will cruise at the KFC Yum! Center.

Final Score Prediction: Maryland: 78 | Louisville: 60

Maryland vs Louisville Best Bet

There's almost too much to like about the Terrapins tonight. Maryland could have a bad shooting night and still cover the spread on this game because of its electric defense. Head coach Kevin Willard's squad is allowing 61.3 points (No. 39 in NCAA) and logging 5.0 blocks per away contest.

Maryland is 5-1 against the spread (ATS) in its last six games, while Louisville is 0-6 ATS in its last six games overall and 1-8 ATS in its last nine home games. The Cardinals are a mess right now and have shown zero reason for bettors to believe they can keep this one close. Trust the Terrapins on Tuesday.

Bet: Maryland Terrapins -12.5 (-115)
