Coppin State is 5-1 ATS in their last 6 games following a loss and 1-5-1 ATS in their last 7 games against a team with a winning percentage above .600 while the over is 6-1 in their last 7 games following an ATS loss. Maryland is 8-0 ATS in their last 8 home games and 4-0 ATS in their last 4 games following an ATS win while the over is 5-2 in their last 7 Friday games.
I get the case to be made for Coppin State as an underdog here as the Eagles haven’t backed down from a challenge this season. However, Maryland’s been downright dominant out of the gate, and I just don’t see any way that the Eagles slow them down here. I think this is just going to end up as a one-sided Maryland win so I’ll lay the points with the Terrapins here.
