Tom Stryker’s Free Basketball Play November 29th


#603 MARYLAND (-12′) over Louisville at 7 PM EST
In this ACC/Big 10 Challenge at Louisville, look for Maryland to continue its winning ways. The Cardinals are struggling under new head coach Kenny Payne, and they’ll have issues here matched up against a Terrapins group that checks in off a victory in the Hall of Fame Tip-Off tournament.

Technically speaking, this is a solid spot for the Turtles. Since February 1st, 1996, Maryland has played well on the road against losing teams inking a strong 21-10-1 ATS record including a profitable 19-6-1 ATS provided head coach Kevin Willard’s boys are favored. As long as the Terrapins are not off a blowout win of 17 points or more, this team trend explodes to a stunning 19-2-1 ATS. In addition, when owning a team won/loss percentage of .801 or better and running with four or more days of rest, Maryland holds a respectable 22-14-1 ATS mark.

Clinging to a horrible 17-32 SU and 15-32-2 ATS record since January 16th, 2021, it is obvious that Louisville is having serious trouble on the court right now. In this run priced as an underdog of +3 or more, the Cardinals fall to a miserable 1-18 SU and 4-15 ATS including a shocking 0-15 SU and 1-14 ATS provided they are not off a blowout win of nine points or more. Also, when playing in the comforts of home, the Redbirds own a rough 4-15-1 ATS tally in their last 20 games including a nasty 0-9-1 ATS if they are competing against a winning team.

These are two programs headed in opposite directions. The Turtles are playing solid basketball and they’ll have no problems covering this number. Take Maryland. Thanks and best of luck, Tom.
