Maryland at Seton Hall: Three things you need to know

1. The Terrapins look to rebound from their first loss of the season – 76-69 at Penn State Dec. 10.

2. The Pirates are on a two-game skid. They lost 76-66 at Iowa State Dec. 8, and 68-48 at Rutgers in a Garden State Hardwood Classic Saturday, falling as 1.5-point favorites.

3. Seton Hall G Myles Powell, the team’s leading scorer (21.2 points per game), is considered out indefinitely due to a concussion. In fact, Powell was so concussed in the game against the Scarlet Knights last time out, he reportedly asked coach Kevin Willard why his team was practicing at Rutgers. Scary stuff. He joins second-leading scorer Sandro Mamukelashvili (wrist) on the shelf.

Maryland 75, Seton Hall 61

Moneyline (ML)

Maryland (-300) is costly –  every $3 wagered profits a $1 if the Terps win outright. Seton Hall (+250) offers a 2.5-to-1 payoff, but this is a PASS. We’ll focus on the spread below.

Against the Spread (ATS)

MARYLAND (-6.5, -110) hits the road looking to rebound from a loss to the Nittany Lions. The Terps catch a break with Powell likely sidelined for the Pirates, and Mamukelashvili already on the mend. Look for the Terrapins to make a statement in this road battle. UMD is 13-5 ATS in the past 18 games following a non-cover, and 7-3 ATS in the past 10 after a straight-up loss, too.

Over/Under (O/U)

UNDER 138.5 (-110) is the play in this one, as it’s uncertain where Seton Hall’s scoring is going to come from. The Pirates’ only two guys averaging double-digit point totals are dealing with serious injuries. Look for the under to hit.
