Pick, Prediction, & Preview:

Hofstra Pride vs Maryland Terrapins

The Hofstra Pride will travel to College Park Maryland, to battle the Terrapins of Maryland University at Xfinity Center at 7 pm EST.  The Pride evened their record at 1-1 with a 76-72 road loss to the Thundering Herd of Marshall on November 11th as Marchall ralling from three points down at the half to outscore the Pride 34-27 in the second half en route to the victory.  On the other hand, the Terrapins remained undefeated on the season with an 82-59 home win over the North Carolina A&T Aggies on November 12th as they jumped out early and often on a subpar Aggies defense as they won in just about every category for the contest.

 

Hofstra Pride's Latest Performance :

The Pride dropped to 1-1 on the year after a lackluster defensive effort in which they allowed the Thundering Herd to shoot 47% from the floor for the game along with allowing 30 points to John Elmore along with 23 from C.J. Burkes.  And while Justin Wright Foreman put up 34 for the Pride, the team was outrebounded heavily while committing 19 turnovers for the contest.  Foreman remains to be their best threat as he is averaging 27 points per outing as him team will certainly need him to be on point versus a Maryland defensive unit that is allowing just 38% shooting from the floor to their opponents.  Nonetheless, the Pride is 2-0 ATS in their first two games of the season, so, one can certainly expect them to compete.

 

Maryland Terrapins's Latest Performance :

Maryland scored its second straight blowout victory to begin the season as they whipped up on the Aggies of North Carolina A&T in their most recent outing.  They had a balanced scoring attack with five players in double digits led by Bruno Fernando with 17 points along with 12 boards as the Terps shot 47% as a team in the win.  On the other hand, they allowed the Aggies to connect on just 39% of their shots while winning the battle of the boards by a 42-29 margin.  Maryland has been playing well thus far in averaging in the mid-70’s per outing while allowing around 60 points per game.  In all, they are the exact opposite of their opponent from Friday:  The Hofstra Pride.

In-Depth Analysis of each team:

This game will be a game that Hofstra would certainly like to have moving forward.  They will certainly need to buckle up on defense in which to prevent easy opportunities for a bigger, more talented Maryland team.  On the other hand, they much run their offense effectively while making open shots as this will be their keys to victory.  Maryland will also look to do the same while attempting to remain unbeaten on the season.  Look for this game to be intriguing throughout as it will be interesting to see if Maryland can remain consistent in getting a potential win.

Against The Spread Selection: Pick:  Maryland Terrapins

My reason for the pick :

 

 

I will back the Terrapins in this instance as they are certainly the more talented squad at this point.  Of course, the Pride will be coming in fresh off a loss, however, look for them to compete throughout despite being outplayed over the course of the game.  In all, expect Maryland to continue their current momentum by picking up another win.

 

 

Totals Selection: Pick: Under

My reason for the prediction :

I will back the under in this contest as it has been the play in the last four games for Maryland while also being the result of three of the last five games for the Pride.  Again, with Hofstra laboring on offense at this moment, look for the Terps to man up on defense.  On the other hand, Maryland will score just enough to win comfortably while keeping the total low.

Betting trends for Hofstra Pride:

  • The Pride is 6-1 ATS in last six games

  • The Under is 3-2 in last five games

Betting trends for Maryland Terrapins:
