Maryland-Alabama Odds & Best Bet | March Madness
Maryland Terrapins vs. Alabama Crimson Tide O/U 143.5
The No. 1 Alabama Crimson Tide, one of the pre-tournament favorites, will square off with the No. 8 Maryland Terrapins. The Tide scored a dominant opening-round win over the Texas A&M-Corpus Christi Islanders. In contrast, the Terrapins notched a narrow win over the West Virginia Mountaineers.
Both Maryland and Alabama have often failed to produce high-scoring games. It makes sense — the Crimson Tide rank fourth in adjusted defensive efficiency and the Terrapins rank 40th. As a result, Alabama is 16-18-1 to the over while Maryland is 12-22. Unsurprisingly, OddsShopper’s betting model wants action on the under.
