This game is gonna be a great one to watch. Both teams are coming into this matchup with a full head of steam, but only one can come out with the dub, and I’ll be honest, I love the way that Maryland’s playing.
Now let’s be fair. Illinois has a good team. Their starting guard Terrence Shannon Jr is absolutely balling. He’s leading the team in both rebounds and points with 6.3 per game and 19.9 per game, respectively. That’s not exactly easy to do. Not to mention the fact that he is leading the team in points while also shooting almost 50% from the field and 43% from three. Those are stupid levels of efficiency and production. Besides Terrence, though, there isn’t much else to be scared of on this team. They remind me a lot of the current Mavs, if you can slow down Luka, there’s a good chance you’ll beat them. The same can be said for Illinois.
Meanwhile, Maryland has a plethora of weapons. The Terrapins have four players on their team right now who are outscoring the second-highest scorer in Illinois. That is what you call depth. Big man Julian Reece has been playing out his mind, averaging 13.7 points per game while bringing down 7.8 boards per game. He is going to absolutely dominate the paint against this Illinois team. His rebounding numbers are well above anyone in Illinois, so they are going to have their hands full with him. The bonus in the Terrapins is that it doesn’t matter what kind of defensive scheme the Fighting Illini throw at them because they can beat you from anywhere. Locking down perimeter shots? Maryland will beat you down low. Protecting the paint? Good luck stopping the three-point barrage. That’s the best part about having four efficient scorers, you can beat a team however you want.
Let’s be real, this game is for undefeated Maryland to lose. And they won’t lose it. Bet Maryland’s Moneyline to get back $200 instantly with DraftKings!
