Maryland vs Wisconsin Betting Odds and Pick – February 19, 2017


Wisconsin has seen their Big Ten lead evaporate thanks to back-to-back losses in their past two outings. Though there have been recent issues on the court, bettors should have been fading the Badgers for some time, as Wisconsin is 3-8 ATS in their past 11 games and have not covered in their past four. Wisconsin will hope to bounce back both SU and ATS when they host the Maryland Terrapins Sunday.

– Shark Bites
  • Maryland is 9-1-1 ATS in their past 11 games.
  • Wisconsin is 15-1 SU in their past 16 games at home.
  • The total has gone UNDER in 4 of the past 5 games between Wisconsin and Maryland.

Wisconsin’s offense has been downright awful during their last two games, as the Badgers have averaged 58.5 points while shooting 38.2 percent from the field. It may not get any easier moving forward either depending on the health of Bronson Koenig. The senior has been playing with a strained calf muscle but was left out of Wisconsin’s last game against Michigan. Freshman D’Mitrik Trice has gotten the bulk of the time at the point guard spot the past two games but shot just 24.4 percent in that span.

Maryland has primarily depended on senior Melo Trimble to carry the team offensively. The Terps’ guard averages 17.2 ppg, which is over six points more than anyone else on the team and has taken 100 more shots than any other player. After Trimble, the team’s three leading scorers are all freshman.
