The Maryland-Eastern Shore Hawks are 1-8 this season and have lost their last four games. UMES is averaging 59.1 points and they are shooting 38.2 percent from the floor while defensively they are allowing 76.9 points and their opponents are shooting 46 percent. Devin Martin leads the hawks averaging 14.4 points per game. Dominique Elliott is averaging 10.8 points and 6.0 rebounds, Bakari Copeland is averaging 7.6 points, and Ryan Andino is averaging 6.1 points. UMES has played the bulk of their games on the road and they are well over matched here.
Maryland is 1-4 against the spread in their last five home games, 2-6 against the spread following a win, and 4-10-1 against the spread in their last 15 home games against a team with a losing road record. UMES is 4-1 against the spread in their last five non-conference games and 3-9 against the spread against a team with a winning record.
This one just looks like a blowout so I expect Maryland to run away and hide and get the win and cover.
