The Terrapins are 5-0 ATS in their last five Monday games and 8-2 ATS in their last 10 road games. Maryland is also 2-5 ATS in their last seven games following a straight-up win and 0-4 ATS in their last four versus the ACC.

After something of a stunning loss to St. Bonaventure, the Terrapins get credit for bouncing back with a 15-point win in their last outing. As for Syracuse, the big question there is going to be the health of Battle, but even if he’s limited I still like the Orange to cover here.
