The 2022-23 college basketball season continues on Sunday with a thrilling matchup between the Miami Hurricanes and Maryland Terrapins. Miami has opened the year with four double-digit victories, including an 84-74 win over Providence on Friday. Norchad Omier paved the way with 19 points and 12 rebounds.

Meanwhile, Maryland has won each of its first four games by at least 20 points and destroyed Saint Louis on Saturday, 95-67. Five different Terrapins scored in double-digits, but it was Donta Scott that stole the show with 25 points and 5 rebounds. The senior is averaging 15.0 points per game so far.

Miami vs Maryland Prediction & Pick

Miami and Maryland take the court as two of the most experienced teams in NCAA basketball, which should make for a great game. The main difference here comes at head coach. This is Kevin Williard's first season leading the Terrapins, while it is Jim Larranaga's 12th season leading the Hurricanes.

I'm still going to give the edge to Maryland. The Terrapins have looked outstanding in the early going, shooting 48.1% from the floor and allowing an opponent shooting percentage of just 34.1% (No. 14 in NCAA). They have the length and defensive skills to contest any shot the Hurricanes want to take.

Final Score Prediction: Miami: 72 | Maryland: 76

- The total has hit the over in four of Maryland's last five games against Miami.

Miami vs Maryland Best Bet

This game is a true toss up, so shifting gears to the point total is the best move to make. The over has cashed in four of the last five head-to-head matchups between Miami and Maryland. Both of these teams are averaging at least 76.8 points per game and shooting at least 46.5% from the floor as well.

Keep in mind this game is expected to go down to the wire. That means it could come down to free throws at the end or even go to overtime in the best case scenario. The Terrapins and Hurricanes are each racking up 19.0 or more attempts from the line per game. I feel comfortable backing the over.

Bet: Over 140.5 Points (-110)
